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.
Only if they want to be charged with kidnapping. NO.
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.
I am not 100% on this but I am almost certain that they can as if an item is inside the home they can come in to take those
Yes. When the vehicle is repossessed it no longer belongs to you and there is no requirement to tell you where it will be stored.
That is a decision made by the lender, and some do have photographs taken before the car is seized, but it is not a legal requirement. The repossession agent/agency does not assume responsibility for any damage to a vehicle that happens while it is being recovered.
In Canada or the United States a Repossession Agent usually works for a car company, a boat company or anything that costs a lot of money and the person who owns is is in default of their payments. These people at great risk go out on the streets, find whatever it is that they are sent to reprocess and take it back for a percentage of what the thing is that they just reprocessed is valued at.
This might help you to visualize this better.Let's say the car payment was due on the 10th of the month. At midnight, you still have not made that payment, and at 12:01 am on the 11th, the repossession agent hooks up to your car in your driveway and drives away. No, it is not against the law, PROVIDED:The lender has contracted the agent to recover the vehicle.The lender has provided a legal order of repossession.And, the repossession agent has followed the repossession and collection laws of the US and the state.It is not likely that this would occur though. The logistics of the situation take time. This is part of the reason most lenders have a five to ten day grace period.The more likely scenario is that the payment was due on the 10th, was not paid, the five day grace has come, and the payment has not been made. During the five days since the 10th, the lender has contacted the repossession agency, has sent them an order for repossession (electronically), the account has been entered into the repossession agencies system, the account has been assigned to an agent, and at 12:01 am on the 16th, the repossession agent secured the car in your driveway and affected recovery.Your car being repossessed is not the fault of the lender or the repossession agency in most cases. In the majority of cases it is the fault of the borrower, either from personal failure or unforeseen circumstance.
They can only take whatever it is they have an order of repossession for - if the trailer is not included in their order of repossession, they cannot take it.
Not typically, in fact in several years experience in the industry, I have never heard of such a practice. Repossession, beyond being a waiting game, is a game of opportunity. When the repossession agent finds it, he will take it. The last thing any of them want to do is give you prior warning that they are on your trail, and to give you the opportunity to hide it and make their job more difficult.
The repossession process of a car usually takes about 6 months
Possibly, but they can certainly prevent you from interfering, as it is no longer your car, hence the repossession.
A repossession will significantly lower your credit score, regardless of the balance. It will take around 7 years before the repossession is removed from the credit report.

Sort of. In many states hindering repossession is a crime. It is not exactly grand theft auto, but it is comparible. More often than not, the lender would obtain an order of replevin, a court order for you to surrender the vehicle. When the repossession agent returns with this order, if you still refuse to turn over the vehicle, the law enforcement officer accompanying the agent will arrest you and take you into custody, and then you will surrender the vehicle or remain in jail.
Yes, as long as an active repossession order exists, the vehicle will eventually be recovered. If it is seen in towing position by a recovery agent, he will take it. Keep in mind that many repossession agencies have spotters who do nothing but stake-out wanted units, or look for them in public locations where recovery agents may secure them. Any attempt to hide the vehicle or prevent the recovery could be prosecuted. Repossession is a time game, an inevitability. Hundreds of thousands of vehicles are repossessed in the US every year. Less than 1% of 1% of the vehicles up for repossession are successfully hidden for any significant time. And, some states are passing laws that will prevent parties who have active repossession orders against vehicles registered to them from registering any vehicles in that state. If you have active arrangements with the lender, hope your payment reaches them before the recovery agent is able to secure the vehicle in question. Be certain to contact the lender and get their assurance that repossession activites have been cancelled once the payment is received. Your best course of action is to take the payment to the lender, and while there have them call the repossession agency who has the active order and witness them cancelling the order.
Try this, if the repossession agent/hauler arrives at the home to find the debtor present, and hands him a copy of the Notice of Repossession, that is long enough. The problem you may run ito is that if the home is being occupied, you may also have to serve a Notice of Eviction as well. This can get complicated. It can take up to six months (in some cases a year) to legally evict in some states.
Repossession laws vary from state to state. States also have different provisions for different types of property. You would need to be more specific about the circumstances, the property and the state where the repossession would take place. Your question should be reformed to ask, "Is a repossession under the following circumstances legal"? Asking what is considered an illegal repossession is much too broad a question.
