What can you do if you bought a car from a person who is not licensed to sell cars and he repossessed it without notice?

Were you in DEFAULT of the contract the car was collateral for? If so, not much to do about the repo except pay up. Obviously, the "not licensed" part didnt bother you when you bought the car. Call a local attorney for state specific advice.

In many states, notice of repossession is not required. The licensing of the seller is neither here nor there, because that does not affect the fact that you owe him a debt. There may be laws regarding your rights to reclaim the car after paying the back payments and costs of repossession.

Your car can be repossessed at any time without any warning if you aren't making your payments. It is probably in your paperwork in the fine print what happens when you don't make your payment.

Sit back and wait for NOI letter (Notice of Intent). * The majority of states do not require notice before a vehicle is repossessed. Contact the lender and explain the situation. And hope for a positive outcome.

In Virginia, the law states a lender must submit notice in writing at least 10 days before a car is to be repossessed. Therefore, car payments that are late can be subject to repossession at anytime, provided notice has been given.

Yes, they can. One of the stories I've heard was that a car was repossessed from a mall parking lot--full tank of gas and purchases inside.

when they repossess your car it makes sense that you would get it in the mail with a notice.

In the state of Nevada, if you do not make payments on a car you are buying, it can be repossessed with no notice given to you. Once repossessed, you will still be liable for all further payments even if the car is sold at auction to another buyer.

In some states yes. In some state the lender is not required to give any notice at all before or after. In some states, the lender is only required to give you notice after the vehicle has been repossessed.

If you weren't paying the bill and the courts awarded the vehicle to the lender, it's gone.

Without prejuedice means that the decision is not irrevocable. That, in this instance, at some time in future you may withdraw the notice to quit.

You will have to pay the balance due after the sale. A creditor who has a valid security interest in a vehicle may repossess the vehicle without notice to the debtor where the underlying debt, an installment contract, has been discharged in bankruptcy and the debtor has not reaffirmed the installment contract. O P I N I O N KLAPHAKE, Judge Rosalyn Rodgers appeals from summary judgment awarded to her creditor, respondent General Electric Capital Corporation (GE Capital), which repossessed a vehicle under the terms of a security agreement after Rodgers' discharge in bankruptcy. Rodgers claims that despite her bankruptcy discharge and her failure to reaffirm the installment contract post-bankruptcy, she was entitled to notice before the vehicle was repossessed. We disagree and affirm.
