Well, if the title lists no lienholders, it cannot be repossessed. If it lists one, it would be best to surrender it or don't keep anything in it of value. Yes. Even if the lien is not recorded on the title, it hass probably still been filed with the state.

They should notify you in writing as to why you have yet to receive your title.

Can your car be repossessed if you hold the title?

Yes, if you took a loan out and used your car as collaterol, then it can be taken away. If you own the title free and clear, then it cannot be taken from you. Only if you owe money on it or the previous owner owes money on it. If the previous owner has an outstanding debt on the car and sells it to you without you knowing about the debt then the car can still be repo'd.

Can they repossess your car with out a court order in the state of Vermont?

They don't require a court order to repossess a vehicle... the only way a court order would be required is if the court had ordered you to give up your vehicle as collateral if you found yourself on the losing end of a lawsuit or something to that effect. A vehicle which is paid off cannot be repossessed, because the lienholder - who is the lawful owner of that vehicle while they hold the title - is reclaiming their own property after a lessee fails to meet the conditions of their contract.

not sure which Hill & Associates you mean. Can a car be repossessed from repair shop?": YES Hold that thought because here in Ohio if a car is up for repossesion and it is sitting at a repair facility and a bill is owed on the car for repairs it cannot be repossesed unless the repair bills are paid to the shop. the shop owner has the right to hold the car and notify the bank or finance company. they will either pay the bill to the shop and retrieve it or write it off. At that point if the shop owner cannot get the person to pick up the car they can file for a title for the vehicle.

Does a car dealership have legal right to hold your title once you have completely paid that specific car off?

Whose NAME is the title in? Yours, or the dealership's? When you bought the vehicle, the auto dealership would supposedly transfer the title to you, but would also place a "lien" on the vehicle. IF THE TITLE IS IN YOUR NAME, simply tell the dealership to hand it over, and call the authorities if they refuse. IF THE TITLE IS NOT IN YOUR NAME, then you just may have a problem requiring the services of an attorney, assuming of course that you have fully paid for the vehicle.

You bought a car that has a leinholder?

Get a hold of the lien holder then get a hold of the owner who has the lien against them. Otherwise you may end up responsible if you desire to keep the vehicle. If everything is valid and the payments are not made the car may be repossessed. Then you will have to take the other person to court. Tedious and not fun.
