Present proof of your ownership and the lien contract to court and get a repossession order.

The question is extermely unclear. Who is under contract to whom? Bottom line - if you have a valid repossession order giving you legal possession of the vehicle, that should be all you need to seize the vehicle.

No. Absolutely not. If they enter a vehicle they do not have an order of repossession on, they've committed a crime. They may enter the vehicle they are there to repossess, and only the vehicle they are there to repossess.

No. Vehicle can be resold, you still take the hit on your credit.

It is NOT legal to enter a garage in any state to repo a car, unless the repossession agent has a replevin order issued by the court that holds jurisdiction. Call a local attorney.

Yes it is and they can tow your car away if you are parked at work! * In the majority of US states a repossession agent cannot remove a vehicle from a garage locked or unlocked, closed or open unless the agent has a replevin or other type of court order.

Yes. But you could potentially sue for any damage caused.

Switchblades are in fact legal to posses in Oregon, although to carry it with you, in order for it to be legal, it CANNOT be concealed (this means it has to be visible). If you are under 18, be careful, it's illegal to carry.

Yes. Lenders repossess vehicles in states other than the one they are located in on a regular basis. No prior notice, replevin order or license is needed for a repo agent to take possession of the vehicle.

No, it is illegal to impersonate someone else in order to repossess a vehicle or another asset. For example: You can't tell the R/O of the vehicle that you're from the dealership and are going to detail the car on their behalf as part of a customer loyalty reward.

No, it is not necessary to possess a drivers license in order to register a vehicle.

They don't require a court order to repossess a vehicle... the only way a court order would be required is if the court had ordered you to give up your vehicle as collateral if you found yourself on the losing end of a lawsuit or something to that effect. A vehicle which is paid off cannot be repossessed, because the lienholder - who is the lawful owner of that vehicle while they hold the title - is reclaiming their own property after a lessee fails to meet the conditions of their contract.

If the bank has an order from a judge to liquidate or surrender property to satisfy a judgment, then yes, they may.

Perfectly legal, so long as they follow "peaceful repossession". If your vehicle is being repossessed, you may have some rights. For example, you may prohibit repossessors from carrying arms on your property, but ultimately, if they have an order of repossession for that car, they have a legal right to take possession of the vehicle they are there to repossess. They may not open locked doors or gates, or enter any vehicle other than the one they're repossessing.

Usually when an account is assigned to a vendor for repossesion certain documents are sent over with the order. These items usually show that there is a lien on the vehicle. Days past due and amount owing are usually included in the information provided to the vendor.

Yes. You will be served with an order to appear. On your court date, you will be ordered to surrender the vehicle and the lender will be given a replevin by the court. This is in essenece an order by the court for you to return the vehicle to the lender. When the replevin is served, you will surrender the vehicle or you will be taken to jail and remain there at least until the vehicle is surrendered, perhaps longer on felony charges.

No. The repossession agency/agent can obtain a replevin order to be served on the person to whom the vehicle is registered and if said person(s) do not comply they can be held in contempt of a court order.

If the creditor is the loan holder of the vehicle a lien is already in place. The title will show the loan provider as the primary lien holder. That insures the vehicle as collateral and if default occurs the lien holder can repossess the vehicle without going to court. Except in the few states that require the creditor to obtain a replevin order before seizing the vehicle.

Dealerships are not typically recognized repossession agents, however, if you bring in a vehicle for service, and a valid repossession order exists for that vehicle, the delareship may secure the vehicle for the lender so that repossession may take place.

A New Jersey constable would have to call a police officer in order to have your vehicle impounded. State agencies don't repossess - creditors do that, and hire private companies to carry out the repossession. Impound is your vehicle being confiscated for being in legal violation. Repossession is the lien holder (the actual owner of the vehicle) claiming their property back after the finance agreement has been breeched.

You have to be 18 in order to register a vehicle in Ky.

There are specific regulations that must be met in order for a vehicle to be "street legal". It's unlikely, but not impossible, that a go-kart could meet these. If it does not have a state-issued vehicle license, then no, it's not legal.

Ill answer this in parts. Mechanic repo? YES Private property? YES No signed work order? ORAL contracts are legal too Non- payment? why else would he be "repoing"?? You need to make a deal of some sort, namely PAYMENT

Karen, it is possible to do so legally. You should ask your B/K attorney if it was legal the way it was done. S/he is in a btter position to know ALL the facts. Within days of filing the BK, your finance company should have received notice that you filed for BK protection. If they wanted the vehicle, they should have filed a Motion to Lift the Automatic Stay. It is up to the BK court to grant or deny the Lift of the Automatic Stay. If they didn't, then they cannot legally repossess the vehicle. If they did, they have every right to repossess the vehicle. Consult your attorney immediately.

If you left a vehicle at a repair shop for three months, it would be considered abandoned, even if you have contacted the shop. In order to recoup repair costs and storage fees, the shop is legally able to auction the vehicle, return it to the company carrying the loan, or seize it.

When you fall behind on your payments from any place, the lienholder has a legal right to repossess the collateral, mainly the car or truck. They can be nice and warn you, or not. The only papers they may serve is the order to repossess. Most recovery agents (repo people) prefer not to tangle with a debtor and take the collateral when the debter doesn't show up. As long as they call it into the police to protect themselves and they have an order to repossess the goods from the bank, that's it.
