Is the lender or the repossession agent responsible for a vehicle that is damaged during recovery action in Oregon?
Well, I know when I recover a car, I am required to take pics before I even touch the car, then I take pics again of the car after I put it in the yard. Most people don't realise that theres more than one person involved in the repo process. A spotter, a driver, and your car is in the yard, and that is where it is messed up 80% of the time, those cars are moved around like a tetris board by forklift trucks.
Vehicle you recovered and the owner has given it back to the finance company are they responsible for storage and recovery costs?
Depending on your contract with the lender or repossession forwarding company, they could be responsible for the storage fees and recovery costs. Ultimately the car's owner is responsible. If the fees have not been paid and you feel they will not be, and you have not released the vehicle yet, do not release it. The vehicle is the only security you have against payment.
Can a person be charged with grand theft auto under repossession if the vehicle can not be repossessed?
Every state requires repossession agents to carry insurance. If the vehicle is damaged during a repossession or especially a wrongful repossession, the agency that secured the unit must have it repaired at their own cost, or as a matter of insurance claim. Remember, do not sign for acceptance on the repairs until you are absolutely satisfied that they have been done properly.
Yes.. anywhere. When a vehicle gets repossessed (voluntarily or involuntarily) and it isn't reclaimed, the vehicle gets auctioned... the person who took the loan on the vehicle is still responsible for the difference between what was received for the vehicle at auction and what is owed on the balance of the vehicle (plus repossession, storage, and auction fees).
If you voluntarily return a vehicle to the finance company are you responsible for the balance after the sale of the vehicle?
Yes, as long as an active repossession order exists, the vehicle will eventually be recovered. If it is seen in towing position by a recovery agent, he will take it. Keep in mind that many repossession agencies have spotters who do nothing but stake-out wanted units, or look for them in public locations where recovery agents may secure them. Any attempt to hide the vehicle or prevent the recovery could be prosecuted. Repossession is a…
If a garbage truck hit your parked car do you go through insurance or go to the town hall and what insurance will cover that?
If you have collision coverage on your vehicle, the damage is covered under your policy. Your insurance company will then attempt to recover ("subrogate") the responsible parties insurance carrier....or the responsible party directly if they were not covered by insurance.

Can a repo service come into your job and confront you and question the where abouts of the vehicle?
Yes. Under the self-help repossession laws a repossession agent can contact you at work and request the location of the vehicle. If, however, you request in writing of the repossession agency that you no longer be contacted at work, the agency is required by the Graham-Leach-Bliley Act, and the FFDCPA to cease all contact with you at your place of employment, unless they have no other means of contacting you, and then only to notify…
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…
What is the average price a bank pays a recovery company for the repossession of a vehicle in the state of Mississippi?
I believe whomever caused the accident is at fault, whether their car was damaged or not. * The evidence compiled in the accident investigation will determine the responsible party. To determine who is at fault in a vehicle accident investigators use a method referred to as "chain of causation" and begin the investigation with the vehicle that was last in motion. This does not necessarily mean that the driver of said vehicle is the one…
