To get your repossessed car back you may need proof of residency, insurance, and, other personal information to retrieve your repossessed vehicle back to you.

Yes, it can be repossessed. If you owe money on a vehicle and do not have a clear title of the car - In reality, this car is not yours until the debt is paid. The car is collateral until your pay the loan off. If the car was repossessed, the personal contents like the car seat must be given back to you.

If you are trying to cancel your car registration and want to give your license plates back to the DMV all you need to do is go to DMV and fill out affidavit that your vehicle has been repossessed because you have the plates to surrender. Otherwise, just call all the impound lots in your county see if they have your vehicle and ask them when can you retrieve your personal belongings and plates from your vehicle.

Only if you intend to get it back.

You are allowed to set up a time with the tow company that retrieved your vehicle to get any personal items of yours out of it, that does not include installed stereos or custom wheels. As for the notice, you will need to speak with your finance company, they will usually offer to give you back the vehicle if you can pay what is delinquent.

YES,, CALL the lender and find out HOW MUCH it will cost to do so.

Actually you can get your vehicle back if you file bankruptcy within 10 days of your vehicle being repossessed. Your attorney can file an emergency injunction if needed.

Yes. It is your personal property. It is taking up space on the property of the repossession agency. They may charge you for using that space.

That is not possible to recover money that has been invested into a car that has been repossessed. Usually there is a 10 day grace period to recover personal possessions from within the vehicle. If you want to recover money invested into the auto, try to get the vehicle back from the bank. Good luck!

Pay for the car and get it back, or pay the deficiency after it has been sold.

The vehicle will be repossessed and the leasor will be held responsible for the unpaid balance of the lease.

if the vehicle had a stereo system in it when u bought it, u have lost the system that was in it when reposessed most state laws say that if an item is "wired","taped"or otherwise "fashioned" to the vehicle it is considered a part of the vehicle and not personal property. so in other words if you wired in a stereo then no you cant get it back. if you have loose items in the vehicle i.e. cloths,papers,trash you can get that back in a certain time frame

Surrendering a vehicle, in a financial sense, means that it is being repossessed and it is being given back to the finance company. The company will usually send someone to collect the vehicle.

In the State of Arizona, the license plate belongs to the debtor. They cannot charge you for your plate but they can charge you for inventory and storage of your personal property (which, incidently, includes your plate).

If your car is repossessed and you want to get it back, you can contact the finance company and clear any outstanding payments. They may agree to return your vehicle to you if they have not already sold it but be warned that lenders try and sell repossessed vehicles as quickly as possible to try and recoup funds. The finance companies often sell the repossessed vehicles at a car auction. Here they can be sold "as seen" and at a lower price than market value, thus they can be sold quickly. It is often possible to find out which auction your car is being sold at and you can get your repossessed vehicle back yourself by attending the car auction and bidding.

It means the bank, or whoever loaned you the money for the car, will send people out to take it back.

Theoretically no. If the vehicle is repossessed you are supposed to be given the contents back. However, this does not apply to INSTALLED items, so if you've upgraded the stereo system, or installed premium equipment like a high-performance engine, those are considered to be part of the vehicle. Also, it's likely to be your word against the vendor about what was in the vehicle at the time it was repossessed.
