If you got the vehicle in one state where the lender is and now live in another how does the repo work with an out of state vehicle?

Usually the bank has a list of repo companies they do biz with and they pick one to repo the car. Maybe the closest to the car, maybe the cheapest, whatever.

You are suppose to register your vehicle in the state you live the most time in.

Normally you have to have the vehicle registered in the state that you reside in. The only exception is for military members.

In most cases you need to insure the car with a policy written in the state that the vehicle is registered. Many states require that the insurance companies report the vehicles that they are insuring to the state for cross reference of motor vehicle registrations. So if you live in state A and your vehicle is registered in state A but insured in state B then state A will think that your vehicle is not insured and revoke your vehicle registration. Now if you live in state A but register and insure your vehicle in state B then you run the risk of not adhereing to the law that says you must register the vehicle in the state of your primary residence. If you have a legitimate reason for doing this such as a second residence in another state at which you keep a vehicle then you should have no problem doing this. If you are doing it to avoid higher taxes or insurance premiums then you will be doing something illegal.

It all varies by your state laws. but normally the lender will search for repo and towing companies in the area where they think you are and they search for you and come and tow your car to a tow company or repo company lot, then they contact your lender, so you need to contact your lender to arrange payment or to get your stuff out of your car. Hope This helps Adam OUT

It's "per se", not "per say", and you have to be a resident of the state you register a personal vehicle in.
