Last i looked the plates STAY WITH THE DEBTOR. Maybe he planned to drive your car all weekend. Was it a nice ride? CALL the LENDER Monday morning and get it straight.

The plates belong to you, not the lender, nor the repo man. They are registered to you and are your property and responsibility.

If the plates were used on another vehicle that was involved in a crime or accident, and someone wrote down the tag number, the information would come back to you, and you would have alot of explaining to do.

If the car was reposessed with the plates still attached, and you can prove that, then the headache is with the repo man. He is responsible for the car and the personal property left with it. Once they take the car with the plates still attached, it's on them.

They repo agent will take it when your not looking. The agent still has a job to do and only get paid if the jod is complete.

No, a juvenile cannot enter into such an agreement and the repossession agent could be held legally accountable for attempting/taking part in such action.

Yes. It is perfectly legal for a repossession agent to take possession of a vehicle when they are acting on behalf of the lender. The repossession agency does not have the option of allowing the borrower to retain the vehicle even though proof is presented that payments have been rendered. Such issues are strictly between the borrower and the lender. The lender and/or court being the only parties that can rescind the repossession action.
