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.

Yes, as long as it does not constitute a breach of peace, such as attempting to remove a vehicle from a locked or unlocked garage. Unless the property is legally posted.


Yes it is and they can tow your car away if you are parked at work! * In the majority of US states a repossession agent cannot remove a vehicle from a garage locked or unlocked, closed or open unless the agent has a replevin or other type of court order.


Yes, as long as the action does not constitute a breach of peace. The repossession agent may not however, remove a lock on a gate or enter a closed structure such as a garage whether it is locked or not. In a few states the repossessor cannot enter posted property, or can only do so at their own risk.


No that is called breaking and entering.But stupid things like breaking the law have never stopped some repo companies.You should sue the lender not the repo criminnal.Check for damage and file a police report.Then sue you don't need a lawyer you represent yourself. The repo company cannot "Breach the Peace" to get a vehicle. In short, that means they cannot; pull you over or make you stop while driving down the road. Or, physically remove you from your vehicle. They must leave your property when requested to do so. They connot enter a closed private garage. Remember, the rules of leaving property are different for (home owner v. renter, public garage, apt. complex etc.) Keeping a vehile listed for repossission in a closed garage will help you out in the short term. The repo company can and will go back to the lender and obtain a court order to come inside the garage and take possession of the vehicle. This may take a matter of two weeks to a month. If that is all the time you need to get caught up or file the necessary BK paperwork it might be a good plan. But keeping the vehicle in a closed garage will not help out forever.


NO! It would require a court order. The garage is private property and the owner has the right to keep it secured. If an attempt is made to remove the car from the garage (locked or not) the repo. agency has committed a Breach of Peace. Which may result in fines and the loss of the lender's right to any deficiency judgment.


Any action that directly opposes the existing laws of the state and/or municipality which relate to the safety/well-being of citizens and/or property where said action occurs. For example, if a repo agency attempts to remove a vehicle by entering a garage or fenced yard without a court order, a 'breach of peace' has occurred.


this is a GENERIC definition... BOP is usually decide in the APPEALS Courts. Links at the bottom Breach of Peace. However, even if there is a right to repossession, the repossession agent cannot Breach the Peace in conducting the repossession. That means that the repossession agent in repossessing the vehicle cannot: forcibly remove you from the vehicle; stop you on the street or highway like a law enforcement arrest; enter a closed garage or your home; break into your house; create a disturbance such as a fight or other altercation; threaten any of the above actions; or pretend to be a law enforcement officer while conducting the repossession. If any of these actions occurred you should immediately contact an attorney. courtstuff.com


The reason a car is being repossessed is due to non payment (as promised in written and signed agreement). Until the buyer or lessee has clear title to the vehicle, they have no rights in ownership. Housing a car you don't own in a locked garage is illegal - it is then considered 'stolen' and with the proper court documents, the agency can enter and remove the vehicle.


Repo people are the scum of the earth. They are nothing more than prostitutes for finance companies. Yes, the can follow you as long as they do NOT try to physically remove you from your vehicle. That would be an assault. If they enter your private property, you can tell them to leave, if they don't, that is criminal tresspassing. Anytime you park your vehicle, either have it parked in a closed garage or have it blocked by other vehicles. Repo folks cannot enter a closed garage (at your house) or remove any vehicles blocking your vehicle. Repo folks can have keys cut to your vehicle WITHOUT your permission. Repo folks can tell you by law, you must give up your vehicle to them...THAT IS A LIE I am in the towing business and they cause so much trouble for towing companies. If you get out of your unattended vehicle for just an instance, consider your vehicle GONE ........


Take your vehicle to a garage if your not equipped with the nallage and or tools it saves you time and money


A repossession agency cannot enter a garage locked or otherwise to recover a vehicle unless the agent has a replevin (court) order to seize the vehicle. Additionally, a vehicle cannot be gifted in the usual sense, to another person unless there is a clear title, meaning the vehicle has been paid for in full and there are no lien holders. If the title is not in the person's name who has the vehicle, they do not own the vehicle.


Yes. It would constitute a breach of peace, and possible other civil and/or criminal charges.


No, you cannot remove the garage since it is part of the real property and thus covered by the mortgage.


There is a button at the beginning of the breach that you pusy in and the bolt will pull straight back out of the breach.


In most states and countries it is considered breaking and entering. * No. Entering locked property whether a building or land, or removing a lock to do so, constitutes a breach of peace. Also entering any structure locked or not to repossess a vehicle is a breach of peace unless the repossessor has a replevin or other order from the court that allows the act.


In Tennessee, a truck or car finance company can hire a repossession company to take your vehicle if you do not make payments and are in default. They are not able to break into a locked garage to take your vehicle and they cannot forcibly remove a person from behind the wheel of the car.

If you get out of your unattended vehicle for just an instance, consider your vehicle GONE . Repossession agents can obtain a court order (replevin) to recover a vehicle. The person who has the vehicle must surrender it or be held in contempt of a court order. It is not illegal for them to come onto the property to retrieve a vehicle subject to repossession. It is a fact they cannot take a vehicle from a garge locked or not or remove a lock from a secured gate without a court order. It is perfectly legal for them to follow the vehicle regardless of who is driving it, and to take possession of it at the first opportunity that will not constitute a breach of peace. Repossession agents are simply doing what they were contracted to do by the lender. a vehicle does not belong to the borrower until the contract agreement has been completed according to terms. Who wrote the contract that says they may take your personal items and then sell them back to you when you inquire about them? Opportunistic scumbags indeed..... Try paying your bill and the repo man will have no choice but to ropo other peoples unpaid for junk.


NO It's almost always against the property owner's will, but if there is no confrontation (breach of peace), it will be removed. And you can spend 6-24 months in jail for tresspassing.


Not knowing what vehicle you have, you may have a faulty switch or pulse board. Remove the fuse for the wipers when it is not raining until you can get to a garage for repair.


You remove the code from the vehicle by holding down (up technically) on the first and third buttons, simultaneously. Watch for the light to change from solid to flashing after 1 min. However, in removing the code from the garage door opener mounted in the ceiling of the garage, you will need the original "clicker". With clicker in hand, you hold down on the setting button on the garage door receiver while also holding down on the "clicker" button. The garage door receiver light should flash several times to acknowledge the code. Test by using the clicker to open and close the garage door. Yours- Sarah Lee aka Mycarlady


first remove tires from vehicle then remove calipers then you can replace break pads on both sides of vehicle


Wave goodbye to the car and all its contents. Oh! You can remove your children and pets, I almost forgot. * The lender must send the borrower a "Right To Cure" notice twenty days before initiating repossession methods. The exceptions to the law are, "skips", leased vehicles, lack of insurance coverage on vehicle, or the vehicle is in the possession of a third party. The repossession must be done without constituting a breach of peace as defined under Colorado law (vehicle cannot be removed from a garage or other private building locked or unlocked, vehicle cannot be removed from posted property or by means of removing a lock or other device upon a gated area, and so forth).


first get a bucket filled with melted peanut butter and baking soda. Then proceed to wipe away paint. Aerosols can be used to remove paints from your garage doors. These are very effective!
