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.

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.

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.


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.


Does the lien holder have to hold your motorcycle after repossession?

After repossession, the lien holder or agent sends information on how to reclaim the vehicle; if the owner does not respond or cannot repay the outstanding debt, the agent removes all personal belongings and sells the vehicle at auction. You will then be liable for the difference in what it sells for and the balance on the loan plus repossession fees.

Can a repossession agent take a vehicle without waiting for the borrower to show proof that payments have been made?

Yes. It is perfectly legal for a repossession agent to take possession of a vehicle when they are acting on behalf of the lender. The repossession agency does not have the option of allowing the borrower to retain the vehicle even though proof is presented that payments have been rendered. Such issues are strictly between the borrower and the lender. The lender and/or court being the only parties that can rescind the repossession action.

When the lender contracts out for the a rept to a CA repo agent and that party contracts to a 2nd party Texas agent to complete who is responsible for the damages incurred during the repo?

Regardless of who the agent is that actually repossesses a vehicle the responsibility will remain with the agency that actually accomplished the repossession, however, the Creditor is ultimately responsible for the actions of the agents that they assign an account to. The assigning agency, if they had no actual part in the repossession will probably not be responsible.


What if the co-buyer says they are not going to make any more payments and the vehicle breaks down and need repair?

If the cobuyer is in possession of the vehicle in this scenario, then eventually the lender will put it out for repossession. Once located, the repo agent will secure the vehicle or will have it assessed for the lender to determine if they want it or not, if it is worth repossessing. Either way, if you are the primary on the account, it will negatively affect your credit. It might be better for you to contact the lender and divulge the location of the unit. As a signer on the loan, you have the right to sign a voluntary repossession and surrender the vehicle. In light of the irresponsible behavior of the cosigner, it is the right thing to do.

No, that would constitute a "breach of peace" . However the repossession agent can call the police and request assistance some departments will comply, many will not due to the fact that it is a civil matter. However, if the repossession agent has a replevin order from the court the police will assist him in recovering the vehicle.


Can a tow truck driver hit the car he is repossessing and cause damage?

Yes, he can cause damage, but then he has to pay for it. In the majority of cases if the vehicle property is damaged the lender is responsible. not the repo agent. Repossessing agents in the majority of states are required to have a "hold harmless" agreement signed by the lender/lien holder. This releases the repo. agent from being responsible for any damages incurred to the vehicle or other property.

Can you repo a car if you have title?

When you purchased the car, you may have received a lien title from the state. This is not a clear title of ownership. The lender in essence still owns the vehicle, at least part of it. It is held in security for the loan. If you are a repossession company or agent, you will be required to have an order of repossession. But, if you are a repossession company or agent, you should already know this.
