Yes. A lienholder is the lawful and sole owner of that vehicle, and it doesn't matter where they repossess it from, so long as they do it in accordance with state laws for repossession.
A person must be 18 years old in the state of Washington before they can get a car in their own name. A person can always buy a car and put the car in their parents name until they are of legal age.
not without legal cause
Yes. The lienholder is the rightful, legal owner of the vehicle, and can take possession of that vehicle anywhere.
The state doesn't repossess your car - private companies do that on behalf of the lienholder. They don't charge you for private property left in your car when they repossess it - that would be illegal. They charge a "storage fee" for the items they remove from your car. Underhanded, yes, but they can legally do it.
Depends on your jurisdiction. If you're late on a payment for just 1 month, it's legal for the car dealer to repossess your vehicle, but 27 days seems a bit uncalled for.
No, they are allowed to come and take it away.
Can the police repossess your car? Can the police repossess your car?
Yes, as long as the repossession agent did not commit a breach of peace as defined under the laws of the state or municipality in which the vehicle was recovered.
No it's not illegal to repossess a car outside the state. It is illegal to leave the state with the car that you have defaulted on the loan.
An Authorized Recovery agent working on behalf of the lien holder can repossess the vehicle from the lessee. It is Illegal in the state of Indiana for someone who works for/ at the car lot or for the lien holder to repossess a vehicle under the car lot/ lien holder's company name. The duty of repossessing a car must be hired out to a recovery agency.
If you have failed to make payments on time and they repossess the car then you have no legal claim to the car. They can sale their car when and how they choose to recover their investment.
Only if the tags stay with the car in that state.
Absolutely, if the car is in your name, it is your car. Go get it.
Lawsuit. They will get their money one way or the other. If they can't find the car they may have you arrested for a stolen car.
If the terms and agreements of the sale is not met legally yes they can if they have retained their legal title to the vehicle
YES, IF YOU CLAIM NOT TO KNOW WHERE IT IS. If you call the bank and say I dont know where the car is its gone, they are going to tell you to report it stolen. If you stop making payments on it then they will repossess, if there is no car to repossess then you are still responsible to pay the monthly payment car or no car If you stop paying and there is no car to repossess then they at that point can take legal action against you. I dont know if its reported stolen but take my word for it you will pay somehow.
They can litterally reposses your car 1 second after midnight the day after your payment is due.
It is NOT legal to enter a garage in any state to repo a car, unless the repossession agent has a replevin order issued by the court that holds jurisdiction. Call a local attorney.
YES, if there is no breach of peace
The statute of limitations for car accidents vary state by state. The statue of limitations in Washington state is three years.
Hey Hun, if you do not make the payments they will come to repossess your car.
No. The lienholder is the only entity with a right to repossess.
