Scott, CALL the lender ASAP. lender is ultimately responsible(legally) for returning personal property. Repo cos. are just their agents. Lender can tell repoman to give up the PP or lose business. Did that, called the lender and they called the repo guy. The lender told me it was up to me to keep calling the repo guy and set up an appointment. Repo guy said he would call me back, still has not done that. The lender is saying it is up to me to chase him down, he will not return a call. Said it was my property and if I really wanted it I would keep calling him until he set up an appointment for me. Scott, sorri I didnt check for a response from you. Most folks dont respond. This lender is not acting "normal". Have an attorney call them. That should stir the pot a bit. email me if that doesnt get results. Do you know the name of the "alleged" repo company? Scott, Stop wasting your time with calls.Stop dealing with the repo moron most of these guys are scumbags and thieves(i think it is a prerequisite to be in the business). Send a letter to the lender and demand that THEY return your property!They are the ones who have stolen it.The repo chimp is an agent for the lender so in legal terms the lender has stolen your property.In your letter list the items and their value and inform the lender you are not paying any fees or signing any waviers to get your property back.Also inform them that they will be responsible for any costs you incur to recover your stolen property(legal fees,court fees,your time etc.)Do not wait for a response from the lender; go and sue the lender in small claims court.If the amount exceeds your state's small claim limit file anyway and then look for an attorney with some guts.Good Luck!!
Repossession companies must give you the opportunity to recover your personal belongings. That being said, they need not do so at the time of repossession. If they store your property for any length of time, the may charge a storage fee. They are not required to hold your property indefinitely either. If you make no attempt to recover you belongings, the repossession company will dispose of it after 30-45 days.
In most cases, a repossession can keep personal belongs for non payment. The company, however, must release them once payment is made.
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.
One payment may not be enough to stop the progress of the repossession proceedings. You need to communicate with the mortgage company and arrange to make regular payments.
Yes. The trailer is considered personal property, much like that rod and real you left in the boat, or the motor that was not part of the loan. You will be permitted to claim your personal property for thirty days after the boat is repossessed. You will be charged for the storage of it though.
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.
They aint going to....They try to scare you with that, as long as they have there property there good!!
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).
There is no company called Property Exchange. There is a company called Investment Property Exchange Services. This company specializes in protecting personal and business assets which may include real property or stocks and bonds.
A cable company can lay cable on someone's personal property but with the consent of the property owner. Some people will ask for some compensation before allowing this to happen.
Yes, they do. Within 24 to 48 hours of recovery (depending on the state) the repossession company is required to notify you that your property can be collected and must give you a phone number or other means to contact them. Most recovery agents will charge storage fee on private/personal property and will require that be paid prior to releasing the property.
