Either remove it before the repo man takes the car or go to the repo company and ask if they set it aside. Some repo companies put all the belongings in a bag and set it aside for the owner. can a repo company charge me for retrieving my personal property and property that belongs to someone else?

Just the motorhome. Any personal property inside the motorhome remains yours, and they may not take it. In most states, however, they may charge a storage fee for personal property which was removed from the repossessed vehicle.



yes they are yours.You may have to pay a reasonable fee if and this is a big IF ....the repo co. has cataloged and stored your personal property.


You have the right to reclaim personal property during the normal business hours of the establishment where the vehicle is impounded. The company storing the vehicle must take inventory of and proper protection of such property under the "in bailment" laws of the state where the vehicle was seized.


If you take your personal property before the vehicle is picked up, you can keep it. If you voluntarily turn in the vehicle you get to keep anything you want. If they have to hunt it down and tow it off, you're just out of luck. They'll throw away anything that was in it and if someone picks it up, it's theirs.This is not true.. The creditor must account for all personal belongings found in a repossessed car.. The below answer came from the following site... http://www.fair-debt-collection.com/searches/repossession.html"What happens to personal property left in my car?Personal property does not apply to improvements made to the car, such as a CD Player, stereo or luggage rack. It only applies to items not connected to the vehicle. The creditor or whoever repossessed the car CANNOT keep or sell any personal property found inside. If the creditor or whoever repossessed the car cannot account for personal property left in the vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation and should consult with an attorney"



It depends on the state in which you reside. Most of the time, if the personal property is permanently affixed to the vechile (stereos, tires, etc), you have no rightful claim to them. Items that are loose in the vehicle such as cell phones, books, CDs, etc, have to be returned to you at no cost.


They have no liability for a vehicle repossessed lawfully from their property.


same as anywhere else. they CANT keep it, but may charge you a fee for inventory and storage.


Yes. It is your personal property. It is taking up space on the property of the repossession agency. They may charge you for using that space.


You are entitled to any property that is not physically attached to the vehicle. In many states, you may remove after market speakers you have installed, provided doing so causes no damage to the vehicle. You will be given only thirty days to recover private property after the vehicle is repossessed.



If it's repossessed, it's repossessed... there's nothing to report. As long as there's a lien on that vehicle, the lienholder is the rightful owner of it, and can reclaim their property.


Yes, the business where the vehicle is located must allow the retrieval of personal items from the impounded vehicle, and is required to keep those items secured until they have been returned to the legal owner or the court rules otherwise.


While you are entitled to your personal property that was in the vehicle, the simple fact is that if you can't prove the tools were there you'll probably never see them again.


After your vehicle has been repossessed, the repossessing company must contact you (often via the creditor) to notify you where your personal property can be recovered. Repossession agents are required to keep the property for thirty days to allow you to recover it, but they will charge you a storage fee, and pretty much every one will require that fee be paid before they surrender your personal property. Regarding an agent of yours being permitted to recover your personal property, it is possible, but may be difficult.



As long as there is a lien on the vehicle the lienholder has the right to repossess the property


Yes, you are allowed to remove your personnel property from any vehicle that has been repossessed. Take proof of ownership to the lot where the vehicle is stored and ask for your property. If they refused call the lender.


Can I get my personal property from the car if it has already been repossed without paying a fee?


A disabled person's vehicle can be repossessed just as any other person's vehicle can be repossessed. You must make all payments on your vehicle if you want to keep it.


You rights are to GET IT BACK, PP is not subject to the security interest on the car.


no,because it is your property and the car really wasnt,so you should get your stuff back.


In New Jersey, it is the responsibility of the person who registered the vehicle. When the vehicle is repossessed, the person from whom it was taken will be contacted to allow them to pick up their belongings. At this time, they will be given the plates as well as any other personal items left in the vehicle. They can then be returned to the agency.


It depends on where you are. In most states, no there is no requirement for that, but they do have to let you come retrieve your personal belongings later.
