They have no liability for a vehicle repossessed lawfully from their property.
Yes. It is your personal property. It is taking up space on the property of the repossession agency. They may charge you for using that space.
Usual process is to call the local PD, find out who towed the vehicle and contact the tower for info on getting your PP. In the case of a repossession, you contact the LENDER to find out the details.
In the state of New York, provided there is a legal order for repossession, once the vehicle is located, it may be secured and recovered. The repossession agency has 24 hours to notify the registered owner of the repossession, but they are only required to do so by mail, and may do so to the address of record on the registration. They do not have to notify anyone at the time of repossession other than local law enforcement of jurisdiction. They must inventory and secure any property contained in the vehicle, and may charge a storage fee for that property.
They can charge a fee if they have processed your stuff ..that is bagged logged etc..If what you have posted is supposed to be $45.00 that is not unreasonable.....$450.00 that is.
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.
You need very good proof it was not damaged before the repossession. Nearly impossible to do as he can say it was damaged when he got it (and he will, believe me).
No, they have no legal right to do that. According to the Federal Trade Commission's website (www.ftc.gov), all personal property within a vehicle may not be kept, sold, or destroyed. If any personal property was destroyed the creditor who reposessed your car can be held legally responsible for compensation of your goods. (http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/autos/aut14.shtm)

what are the legalities of voluntary vehicle repossession
Yes. You CAN retreive personal property (and your tag) from an impounded vehicle. There should be no charge for the storage of the property, however you will need proof of ownership of the vehicle. Repossessions are treated differently and you would most likely incur storage charges for your personal property. (Florida)
In the State of Arizona, the license plate belongs to the debtor. They cannot charge you for your plate but they can charge you for inventory and storage of your personal property (which, incidently, includes your plate).
You have 45 days to pick up your property from the vehicle. That's it. They can tow from your home, work or anywhere else they may happen to find the vehicle.
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.
The owner of the property where the vehicle is located can remove it/ have it removed, in most cases without the necessity of notifying the owner of the vehicle.
Yes. Any property left in the vehicle when it was repossessed is additional property, not part of the repossession. As private property, the repossession company is liable to inventory the porperty and store it so that it may be recovered. State laws vary a bit, but the standard storage limit is thirty days. During this time they may assess a storage fee. You, the property owner must pay this fee to recover your property. Property that is not recovered in the time alloted by law may be discarded as the company sees fit.
if i understood what i have been told they can not destroy your property to obtain the investment they are repossessing.The recovery papers are to obtain legal possession of the vehicle mentioned in the orders.
After your vehicle has been repossessed, the repossessing company must contact you (often via the creditor) to notify you where your personal property can be recovered. Repossession agents are required to keep the property for thirty days to allow you to recover it, but they will charge you a storage fee, and pretty much every one will require that fee be paid before they surrender your personal property. Regarding an agent of yours being permitted to recover your personal property, it is possible, but may be difficult.
As a repossession investigator and agent liason, I can tell you that yes, in fact, I know of several instances of felony charges being filed against an individual for hindering repossession of a vehicle. Your lawyer's response may have been motivated more by the fact that he felt confident that he could successfully prevent prosecution, but nothing will prevent the vehicle from being repossessed aside from the destruction of the vehicle. In the event the possessor of a vehicle under repossession were to destroy a vehicle to prevent that repossession, he could then be charged with malicious destruction of private property and hindering a lender.
Sample letter of vehicle repossession for the state of texas
Any vehicle is the personal property of whoever owns it.
well if you would of paid your bills on time it wouldn't of happend but yea its legal wat ever is in the car stays in the car I do not know what "State" the above "answer" came from, but do both agree and disagree. When a vehicle is repossessed then naturally enough the person doing the repossession is going to reclaim the vehicle along with whatever personal property may happen to be inside the vehicle. If the "owner" of the vehicle wishes to reclaim the personal property (for whatever reason, but basically because he/she can not reclaim the vehicle itself,) then that owner must be afforded a supervised opportunity to remove personal property from the vehicle within some period of days. The reason for that is very simple. The "lienholder" has no lawful claim upon the contents of the vehicle, (and the "repo man" has absolutely no legal claim to the vehicle at all, EXCEPT as being the "agent of" the lienholder (acting on the lienholder's instructions and in the lienholder's steed). The lienholder has a cliam only upon the vehicle itself. To put it simply: Generally, anything attached to, bolted onto or permanently made a part of the vehicle stays with/on the vehicle (i.e., stereo, speakers, wheels, tires and so forth). On the other hand, actual personal property (i.e., glasses, CD's, child's car seats, umbrellas, money, checks, etc.,) belong to the "owner" of the vehicle, NOT the lienholder.
