The crux of repossession depends on the contract you took out at first with the other party. My suggestion would to refer to the contract and find any clauses pertaining to repossession. The legality behind repossession is quite complex and difficult to outline and I am not a lawyer to give advice on that matter but can only give suggestions as a public person. For example, if you went into contract to buy a new car and overtime you could not pay the monthly installments then the other contracted party can take court actions through specialized repossession agencies to repossess your car. This may include further charges and expenses the other party can incur upon you on top of what you have in debt with that party. The list is long. Do not quote me as this website is open to international viewers thus each country and legal system may operates differently. It is wise to seek legal advice or talk to someone who has experienced it before.

What is the difference between repossession agencies and repossession forwarding companies?

Repossession Agencies are independent and corporate tow companies who may work directly with and for Lending Institutions while the Repossession Forwarding Companies are organizations that accept repossession work on a national level and then forward that work out to these Repossession Agencies. The benefit forwarding companies bring to financial institutions is access to a larger base of Repossession Agencies rather than dealing directly with each one across multiple jurisdictions. Repossession Forwarding Companies traditionally have lower rates of recovery due to the economy of scale they offer. Repossession Agencies may still have a competitive advantage locally as they will be more familiar with their territories in the similar fashion a small business will usually have the "home base" advantage over larger corporations.
