Repossession

Is it considered 'breach of peace' for the repossession agent to tow another vehicle out of the way to repossess a vehicle?

Yes. In some states I am not sure about all. A repo man cannot move another vehicle to get to the car he needs, nor can he come into a shut or locked garage to retrieve the car. They are supposed to just wait until they are able to pick the car up without breach of peace. That is when you can take them to court for trespassing and all you have to do is tell them to leave and they have to. They can even bring the cops out if they want, all that is for is to keep the peace but some people think the police are now involved and they have to turn the car over. Not the case. The only way that does any good and the cop can enforce the repo is if the sherrif has signed (a paper, it's called something I forgot, you can google it)

What state are you in? It depends on what the courts have upheld as to BOP.
