Is it legal for you to shoot the Seven Eleven clerk because they are doing their job. While I know Texas is a little bit different when it comes to protecting your property, as long as the Agent is acting in the scope of the law, then NO you can't shoot them.Just remember if you breach peace first, he may just breach it back. If that was me, you better kill me with the first shot, or I WILL shoot you back.

it is illeagle to shoot anyone anywhere unless you life is in imediate danger. Different states have different measuring sticks but someone stealing your car is not justification. If you saw someone taking your car and turn around and get a gun and shoot that person youd better kill them because this is America they can sue you.

Yes it is legal to shoot the repossessor. See Texas Penal Code 9.42."Sec. 9.42. DEADLY FORCE TO PROTECT PROPERTY. A person is justified in using deadly force against another to protect land or tangible, movable property:

(1) if he would be justified in using force against the other under Section 9.41; and

(2) when and to the degree he reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary:

(A) to prevent the other's imminent commission of arson, burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, theft during the nighttime, or criminal mischief during the nighttime; or

(B) to prevent the other who is fleeing immediately after committing burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, or theft during the nighttime from escaping with the property; and

(3) he reasonably believes that:

(A) the land or property cannot be protected or recovered by any other means; or

(B) the use of force other than deadly force to protect or recover the land or property would expose the actor or another to a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury."

Can one vehicle be moved to get to the debtor vehicle in repossession?

This is one of those questions that the answer depends on who you talk to. As a repo agent I have tried to find the answer and it has been difficult. I believe the answer is yes, but if the repo agent damages the car he is moving then (of course) he is responsible, just like he would be responsible for damage caused to a vehicle he was repossessing.

What is the law concerning breach of peace in Texas?

Repossession laws in the State of Texas?

Pay the note or lose the car. The vehicle may be recovered from any location that is discovered provided the repossession agent does not violate the FFDCP Act or break the peace. If the debtor breaks the peace, that is on the debtor; many go to jail for such behavior.If the repossession agent is not able to notify the debtor that he has secured the vehicle, the agent is legal bound to contact the jurisdictional law enforcement agency that a repossession has taken place with 24 hours of securing the vehicle. Most contact law enforcement as they are driving away from the recovery.


In New York State can an automobile be repossessed if it is in a carport and the repossessing agent does not notify you of his presence?

Yes. New York follows UCC laws when it pertains to the repossession of a vehicle. The borrower does not need to be notified of the action and the vehicle can be taken if it is not in an enclosed garage or locked property and there is not a breach of peace.

Can they repo another vehicle for ransom my daughter was told this by the repo man?

No. The only vehicle that can be repossessed is the vehicle for which the agent has a valid order of repossession, OR in some cases, a vehicle the agent encounters (such as reported by a camera car) in the process of locating another repossession. Anything other would be wrongful repossession or possibly grand theft auto and extortion.


How hard do they look for your car when it is about to be repossessed?

Depends upon the company/agent who has the contract for repossessing the vehicle. They only get paid if they recover the vehicle so in most cases they "look pretty hard." Please note, that the majority of U.S. states do not require a replevin order for vehicle repossession matters. However, if such an order has been issued, the person who is named can be held on a contempt of court charge if he or she tries to interfere with the repossession. Please check your state statutes concerning the type of action repossession agents can employ for recovery of the property.


Can they come and reposses a car from a private condominium?

Apparently, it is legal for the owner -- in this case, the title holder -- to repossess an automobile so long as the repossessing agent does not break the law in the repossession process.
