If your car has been repossessed and you know where it is can you go get it since you made the payments before they repoed it?

NO, NOT and dont consider it. Pester the lender to rush it up but dont STEAL it.

how is that stealing when it is still in my name?

It is stealing, because it was repossessed from you, and was probably reported to the local law enforcement agency there as having been repossessed. But don't take my word for it, govern yourself accordingly, ha ha.

But be careful! I assure you, it isn't being left there ignored.

:Whether or not you paid them the money they requested and are now current, you're breaking and entering private property. The car's title has not transferred back to you. Until it does, you're committing GTA. Don't Even Think About It.

If you want to, you can start taking cabs, and then sue for remittance for the cab fares in small claims. If you can prove they were excessively slow in processing the return of your car, you might prevail. However, this isn't a sure thing.

They might be able to garnish your payments for the money that you owe them , but nothing more since vehicle has been repossessed.

YES - the fact that the original term of the lease had past has nothing to do with it since the payments weren't made.

I'll take a guess, since you posted this under reposession: It's hiding a vehicle so it would be repossessed, done sometimes when people are behind in their car payments.

Yes. If you take out a car loan, fail to make payments, and the car is repossessed, you will have to pay the difference between the price the lender received at auction and the balance remaining on your loan.Since repossessed cars are usually sold at wholesale auctions, the difference can be thousands of dollars.

No, since the car is no longer considered "your" property.
