What are the state laws for vehicle repossession in Maryland?

AnswerI have recently learned that the Department of Finance regulates collection agencies as well as finance companies. I was emphatically told that in a vehicle repossession, the towing company/repo company cannot, repeat, cannot charge a separate storage fee for your personal belongings. They belong to you. If you are told that they can charge for the goods, the goods, under the credit law means the good that can be repossessed under the loan which is the vehicle or the home, not the personal belongings. Call your local Consumer Protection agency to get help. I know this is the law in Maryland for a fact. It took me 30 days, but I am going to pick up my personal belongings tomorrow and I do not have to pay a storage fee for them.

In East Virgina can a towing company keep your personal belongings?

If you car was towed for a good and legal reason, then the company has the right to charge you money for the recovery of the vehicle - costs of towing and storage fees, usually. What they do with your personal belongings is usually let someone pick them up. In some cases, they may feel that they have the right to hold them, as "security" for your payment to them. (In cases of a repossession, they should give the personal items back, as the finance company is paying their fee, and has no desire for your stuff.) In theory, if you disagree with that, you could sue. But usually the cost of suit would exceed the value of most personal property in a car, and frankly, the tow company could as easily throw your stuff out and claim ignorance. By all means, consult a local attorney. Always a good idea. But it might - in this case - be even better to just settle with the tow company, or plea in such a fashion that they take pity on you.

I made a agreement of payment by this Friday can they still repo me?

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 time game, an inevitability. Hundreds of thousands of vehicles are repossessed in the US every year. Less than 1% of 1% of the vehicles up for repossession are successfully hidden for any significant time. And, some states are passing laws that will prevent parties who have active repossession orders against vehicles registered to them from registering any vehicles in that state. If you have active arrangements with the lender, hope your payment reaches them before the recovery agent is able to secure the vehicle in question. Be certain to contact the lender and get their assurance that repossession activites have been cancelled once the payment is received. Your best course of action is to take the payment to the lender, and while there have them call the repossession agency who has the active order and witness them cancelling the order.

What is the difference between repossession agencies and repossession forwarding companies?

Repossession Agencies are independent and corporate tow companies who may work directly with and for Lending Institutions while the Repossession Forwarding Companies are organizations that accept repossession work on a national level and then forward that work out to these Repossession Agencies. The benefit forwarding companies bring to financial institutions is access to a larger base of Repossession Agencies rather than dealing directly with each one across multiple jurisdictions. Repossession Forwarding Companies traditionally have lower rates of recovery due to the economy of scale they offer. Repossession Agencies may still have a competitive advantage locally as they will be more familiar with their territories in the similar fashion a small business will usually have the "home base" advantage over larger corporations.
