You need to persue this towards the lending institution first,since this is where the payment in question was sent. If the bank violated their loan agreement you have action against both the the bank and the repo company.

How long after a missed car payment does the finance company repossess the vehicle?

The question is, "Why would you worry about a missed payment when you have interest in the vehicle?" The money that you used as your down payment and any payments you have made total your interest in the vehicle. Why are people running from the repo man when in fact you can place the finance company on notice that, if your interest is repossessed, you will file criminal charges in federal court against the finance company and get triple what the car is worth. I guarantee you they won't take it. You can also put a mechanics lien on the vehicle to protect your interest in it.

Normally if a lien is in force on a vehicle the person(s) company will not release it until any monies owing have been settled in full and final payment. If the vehicle has been lawfully removed from the person(s) company, then the lien has been lost and has no effect. If you subsequently returned to the same company for an additional service, hopefully you would'nt, but if you did, the company cannot reclaim the vehicle for the previous lien. If therefore they withheld the vehicle from you, it would be unlawful with regards UK law. There are specific rules regarding lien, a company for example cannot hold a lien against your vehicle for things like carrying out an MOT Test, or completing a routine service, even if new parts have been fitted, they are not deemed to be an improvement service.

Regardless of the state, if you are not at-fault in an accident, you do not have to have your vehicle repaired, you can simply accept a check.
