No, a repo man can enter your driveway but if the car is in a locked garage they do not have the right to enter without your permission. This rule applies to your home as well.
NO, THAT IS TRESPASSING IN ANY STATE
legally they are not aloud to break and enter into a building to get anything now if your garage is open and the repo man comes by and sees that he will try to take the item needed repo-ed and that is ok It is legal in some states for a repo man to enter an open, unlocked garage. In others it is a crime, and conducting a repossession in a case like this would be prosecutable as Larceny from a Building.
Yes. he cannot break & enter though.
Nowhere in the US is that legal.
Repo Man can come anytime but cannot enter your garage if your vehicle is parked in it.
he cannot break & enter to get the car.
In some places it is not permitted for a repo man to enter a closed garage. In California, for example, a repo person can come on to private property to locate and take a vehicle, but cannot enter a locked placed, can't go inside the house, can't threaten or bully. This is not universal. In some areas the repo man can break open locks, etc.
No. The bank didn't do it...... the repo man did. See the problem with your logic?
there are no Ohio repo laws aslong as you don't breach the peace. I am a professional repo man
can a repo man open a closed gate
Most courts have ruled that you CANT enter a closed dwelling. Carport yes, garage NO. Call a local attorney NOW with the facts and any witnesses you have. Good Luck
Yes. The objective of a repo man is to reposess property of people who have defaulted on their loans. A repo man will never ask for permission.
No, they cannot enter the garage locked or not without a court order. Likewise police would not get involved in the issue unless such an order was in place or they were called due to a physical altercation or other violation of the law.
yes they are allowed on your property hide it in the garage if you have one
Yes In most places hiding the car from the repo man is illegal. If he is sure the car is in there he can enter a storage place and reposes the car. But he is not allowed to intimidate or do violence to the person or property damage to make the repossession.
Well at this point if a repo agent is there to recover a vehicle or property, You no longer own your car or property the BANK does. If a repo agent gets proper authorities "police" and have paperwork stating the bank owns it the authorities can impel you to open your garage because now you are in possession of stolen property fully owned by the bank. but they also must give you a option to pay it up to date.
It depends on the State laws. A private garage is supposed to be just that......private.
Repoman?? NO,NO, and NO. the sheriff?? IF he has a replevin OR warrant, YES. In ANY state. And for the repoman to say he can is ILLEGAL. Call an attorney.
No. A repo agent is only permitted to move and enter the vehicle which they have an order for repossession on.
IF it is NOT locked, they can.
Yes, a repo man can take your car in any circumstances. He just needs to find a means to enter the property.
A repo man is not allowed to move a vehicle or open gate or anything to get what he wants. If the garage dor was open it would be a different story. depending on the state a repo man can open a garage door to get collateral as long as he does not committ another crim in the process! i know Ohio, Indiana, and Tennessee you can for sure.... Michigan i think it depends on how the loan was writen! In NJ, they cannot.If the car is in sight and where they can tow it, that is, without damage to the property. They cannot sneak around the property looking for the vehicle.
Yes, a repo man can drive by a house in an undercover car. They employ various means to see where people are hiding their cars and are usually allowed to take them unless they are in a private garage.
