Repossession

If there is a repo fee on your account does that mean they are trying to repossess your car?

Good question...how did you find out about the repo fee?? Have you been repoed before?? Are you in default now?? If you're not in default, dont worry about it, hope they repo it so you can sue them.... IF you ARE in default, pay up today

Yes that is what it means. If you were behind on your payments and didn't call the lender to work out a deal before a repossession order was issued, Then you payed before a repo agent picked it up you are responsible to pay the repo fee and the lender is responsible for calling off the repo. If you have payed and the lender failed to call the repo agent and you get repoed you can bring up ''wrongfull repossession charges'' and that falls on the lender. In your signed contract you agreed to this and so did the lenders.

The above response is incorrect THE LENDER CANNOT CHARGE YOU FOR SOMETHING (a repo in this case)WHICH HAS NOT TAKEN PLACE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF they try too.... SUE them and there "agents"

To my knowledge, the lender can ONLY repo when the loan is in DEFAULT. Does your acct. being minus put you in default????

of course he can, if he's tough enough.It's short for "Repossess". Loan companies that are not getting their loan payment from the person that borrowed the money hire or pay a fee to "Repo" companies that repossess such vehicles, ie. also boats, RV's, motorcycles, tractors trucks etc.

Absolutely ! So long as he has the correct paperwork - he can repossess the vehicle from anywhere.

He's not allowed to repossess your baby. Note: Child welfare service workers are not repo men; they CAN take your baby.

Just because the company charged off the account, does not mean that they don't want to be paid...so if the car is still assessible...they can repo it. Charged off on your credit means that it is no longer an active paying account..the company took a loss for that amount. A different department, "Profit & Loss" will take over trying to collect any way possible. Sorry.

Yes, along with all other costs of the repo.

No it is breaking and entering.But that does not mean they won't try.After they get the car it is theirs so even if you get the repo guy/lender for B+E they still keep the car.

The repo company will remove personal items from vehicles they repossess. They'll typically charge a storage fee for you to retrieve those items.

Until the LENDER cancels the repo order with the repo company, you are fair game.

No. To be able to repossess any of your property, they must hold a lien on it. If they have no lien on it, they have no right to repossess. Their only option is to take you to court.

As long as you are in DEFAULT of the contract, the lender can repo the collateral.

The repo agency does one thing; repossess the vehicle. I don't know of any case where a lender could even draw from your pay. tThey hire a repo agency to get the vehicle, and they report your delinquency so your credit score suffers..The repo agency does one thing; repossess the vehicle.

No they do not. And they will repo your car if you are too far behind. They may tell you that they will repossess your car if you are 10 days late, but it is a tactic used to scare you. They would loose more money trying to repo your car than waiting on your payment after 10 days.

You're talking about trying to repossess it from the repossessor? Short answer, no. You're committing theft - possibly grand theft, depending on the vehicle's value. But the repo agent coming to repossess your car isn't commiting theft. Double standard? No. The thing of it is, it is NOT your car - the lienholder is the sole rightful and legitimate owner of the vehicle. The repo man isn't taking your car away - he's reclaiming the lienholder's property after you failed to meet the terms of the finance arrangement.

NO, the city CANT repossess your car. They can impound it for a violation of a city law. The only one who can repo a car is the LEINHOLDER. THEY can repo it as a result of the city impounding it for the cities reasons. And only repo it AFTER they pay the city and/or impound fees. Yes - they can have it towed for example if it is abandoned on the side of the road and the lender would have to pay the amount due to get it back just to repossess it. Their lien takes precedence over all others.

In North Carolina, a lender can repossess a car when just 1 payment is missing. They can also repossess it if you let the insurance lapse and are current on your monthly payments.

The same way a loan company does, HIRE a REAL repo agency to do the job.
