There is no limit. If the lender is not in a hurry for the vehicle, then they may not move on it right away. On the other hand, if your behind and they belive they are able to capture back funds they may move on it right away. Don't take any chances, most will work with you to get you caught up. CALL them. You might be surprised. - Repo man in Central Ohio

Can a bank have a key made to repo your car?

They don't really need to. If a bank wants to reposses your car, they will hire a repo man to do it. Licensed repo's have master keys from the car manufacturers that can get them into most cars. Do you owe to a bank or to the dealership? The dealership has a key to your car. The bank can work with the dealership in a similar way. If you owe the bank and there either is no dealership involved or the dealership cannot provide a key, they still have options- they can tow the car, obtain a key from the manufacturer, have one made, etc. They normally already have this process taken care of before the loan is granted. Until the car is paid off, it belongs to the bank or dealership. If they are not being paid on a regular basis, they will take whatever measures legally possible to reposes their property. On a similar note, when they come out to repose the car, they have already called the local authorities. This allows them to take the car whenever and from where ever.
