If the bank never repossessed your car and you gave to your landlord for back rent then your wages were garnished after it's paid off can you get possession of your car back?
It was never yours to give to the landlord. IF the landlord settled with the LENDER to get title, then YOU are out of the picture completely. EXCEPT for the garnishment of course.
Does your partial downpayment have to be returned to you if you never paid the balance and the dealer repossessed the car a few weeks after purchase?
Yes, they can be repossessed. This is a common trick many debtors try to pull. Switch the cars and the repo agent will never catch on is the thinking. Wrong. Finding cars is what these guys do. And, working for many of them are people called skip tracers who are very good at finding things. So you can try this, but it will only work for a short time. The car will be taken anyway…
Can your vehicle be repossessed after the loan and security agreement has expired but you still owe a considerable sum?
The answer is NO, SSI will NEVER be garnished, except to repay SSI overpayments, which can be recovered by a 10% reduction of benefits. SSI will NEVER be garnished for student loans, back taxes, etc. Regular social security payments (NOT SSI) can be garnished IF you draw MORE than $750/month. If you make LESS than $750/month, nothing can be taken from your earnings. A garnishment can take 15% or the amount OVER $750, whichever is…
Can your car be considered repossessed and put on your credit report as repossessed if they never picked up the car?
This argument has been raised countless times by many defendants. It's the old "Well on my lease, my landlord signed it but I didn't", it just happens to be its antecedent. But think of that argument in this perspective: The landlord or his attorney wrote the lease. Chances are you've never met the landlord prior to having some sort of interest with them (the place you rented). So how would you have the defendants contract…
The new owners will take possession of the house next week. Each possession has a story or a memory that makes it valuable to her. Her most prized possession is an antique Chinese teapot that is over 1000 years old. She never even considered the fact that she could be prosecuted for possession of stolen property.
Can you get out of a possession charge if you never even seen the substance and you were just sitting in the car?
Can you join the army with a possession of marujana and illegal possession of a firearm charge but was never convicted?
The owner of a vehicle that has been repossessed, cannot afford to make their payments, so it makes sense that they cannot afford to perform the required scheduled maintenance on the vehicle. This is not always the case but IMO, I would never buy a repossessed vehicle, unless it had extremely low mileage of say less than 20,000 miles.
Are you saying that you paid the rent and then the landlord lost the payment? You would have to determine at which point the rent was lost. For instance, if the check never arrived in the mail and was not cashed, then it wasn't the fault of the landlord. If it is a personal check, then payment could be stopped and the check replaced, without a problem.
Is the landlord responsible for the renter's personal properties that were damaged because of the leaking roof of the garage being rented by the renter?
The answer is basically no. The landlord is never responsible for damages to personal property belonging to tenants in any dwelling or structure. That is why you are strongly encouraged to get renters insurance. In some cases you may have some recourse if the landlord knew of the problem. But if you get renters insurance be insurance company can determine that for you and they can seek damages from the landlord.
I wanted to add to my original question...Our car was repossessed by the finance company because they said they found out someone else was using the car because of car payments being sent from a different address. AND, they stated that they wanted to see the condition of the car. I thought a car would only be repossessed if you were late on payments? I have never heard of this, so I don't know what…
Tenant never switched gas into their own name. The landlord paid the bill for 7 months and then stopped. What are the tenant's rights?
If the lease agreement states that the tenant should switch the account to their name and pay the gas bill then the tenant should pay the landlord back. If there was no written agreement, or understanding, that the tenant pay the gas bill then you could try filing a complaint with the town, housing court, landlord-tenant agency, etc., if the landlord simply stopped providing heat and hot water. If the understanding was that the tenant…
