It depends why they are there. If they are just taking an afternoon stroll, yes they have to leave. If they are chasing a fleeing felon, no, they don't. If they are there to speak to you, no they don't. They cannot search your property without your consent or a warrant though.

You need to contact police to tell them that a person is trespassing, then the police can contact this person and warn them that if they are ever found on the property again they can be arrested. If you find them on the property again, call the police and they will be arrested.

Assuming the officer has no valid business being on your property yes. If he refuses to leave, tell him one last time to leave your property. If he fails to leave at that point, call the Police and you can have him lawfully arrested or cited for trespassing. However, If the officer(s) are there on official business, you cannot ask them to leave, but you can inquire as to why they are on your property.

As a legal matter, police officers are never 'off duty' and are sworn to uphold the law at all times. Therefore, in the performance of their official duties, yes they can. However, in their status as private citizens, you may bar them if they have no official reason to trespass on your property.

If it can be heard off of that property, and is determined to be a nuisance, yes.

If the private property is a residence NO unless the owner has given permission. If it is a business YES as the public police included have right of access.

No he doesn't have to tell you. However, if the off-duty officer is interacting with you in his official capacity, he must identify himself at that point

Yes, he can get it anywhere. No he cannot get it" anywhere".The repo men want you to think that.They can come on your property but they cannot damage your property or "cause a breach of the peace".Now this doesn't mean you have to let them, you can call the police etc.Calling the police is usually a good idea because then you have impartial witnesses.And no the cops won't arrest you. YES, IT CAN BE REPO'D anywhere,as long as it is not locked in. Yes and you don't get caught trespassing...... NO!!!!, A repo man cannot legally enter gated property to take a vehicle without the owners concent, in California. If I come out to a call like this I will arrest you for trespass if the owner wishes to press charges.

Sit out there in the night and wait for them to come, once you see them, politely ask them to stay off your property. Tell them that you bought the property and you own it and pay taxes on it so it's only fair if they get their own land to hunt/scavenger on.

Call the state police, they had it towed and can tell you where it was towed to.

It is possible for someone to come onto private property in order to possess your car in North Carolina. If you have not paid you car off, it is never yours until it is paid off.

Of course tell them to rent half of your property if not sue them....its your property you have earned it...Kick them off

IF and only IF, the co-signor is listed on the TITLE as co-OWNER, it is NOT a repossession. They are taking their own car. IF they are NOT on the TITLE, its GRAND THEFT. Police or not. CALL a local attorney for state specific advice ASAP.

Talk to a police officer. He will give you the paper work.

I would not go on private property to get your vehicle without the police being present. You may end up in a conundrum. Contact the local police and explain the situation.

User Avatar

if it is private property yes. If you live in a complex that has security guards, you can keep them off to an extent. If its private property, I would suggest to notify them that it is private and you want them to leave. If they do not leave you have the right to call the police and have trespassing charges brought against them.

When someone is on another's property they are trespassing so get a 'no trespassing sign' and put it in plain sight. If this person is still on your property then be calm and ask them to read the sign and to please stay off your property. If they become belligerent or they refuse to stop then phone the police.

User Avatar

Yes, under certain circumstances. the law covering that depends alot on what country you live in, mostly if the car was used in a crime it may be able to be towed,obviously proof etc needs to furnished first. now if the car is illegally on your property you ca call a wrecker and have it towed with out even having police involved, police cannot to off private property in a civil matter,such as a reposession, that comes back to not being their business
