I can can be legally repossessed no matter where it goes in the USA. As long as the repossessor can find the car and identify it as the one to be repossessed. It may not be cost effective if it is a long distance unless the vehicle is of greater value than the cost of returning it and paying someone to do that. They can also wait until you return.

They can only take whatever it is they have an order of repossession for - if the trailer is not included in their order of repossession, they cannot take it.

They take out the personal belongings. This includes the tags. Check with the repo company or lender for that stuff back.

Yes a vehicle can be repossessed if the loan is not being paid on.

Most usually they are empowered to take items where you haven't made the payments. If both the truck and trailer were being repossessed, then you are stuck.

Once a car is repossessed, the bank resells it at auctions to make back the money lost on them.

Yes. When the vehicle is repossessed it no longer belongs to you and there is no requirement to tell you where it will be stored.

You will have to take it up with the bank who repossessed the van. Since the car belongs to you, they should not be able to take it away from you. The laws may vary state-by-state. Talk to your divorce attorney to be sure you are protected. * Legally the vehicle could be seized if a deficiency remains after the repossessed van has been sold. This is possible because the transaction was made during the marriage and terms included in a divorce have no bearing on valid lending agreements.

no the only thing they can do is take it out of your paycheck. Even In New York State

If car is wrecked or damaged BEFORE the repossion takes place they still take the car "AS IS". In some states you may be liable for the damages but others it is repo'd AS IS.

As long as you owe them money they can take it.

They can sell the vehicle anywhere it is 'commercially reasonable". MOST lenders try to keep the vehicles in the same state they are repoed in. You should contact a LOCAL attorney for state/case specific advice.

I had a car that was financed through HSBC repossessed last year. It was repossessed. Can HSBC take my federal income tax refund for this repossession?

The only way you can have your car repossessed would be to not make any payments. If you have taken out a loan and have not made payments, they will take your car away.

Just the motorhome. Any personal property inside the motorhome remains yours, and they may not take it. In most states, however, they may charge a storage fee for personal property which was removed from the repossessed vehicle.

It can if the lender gets a writ of replevin, the deputy can take it.

User Avatar

You are allowed to remove personals that ARE NOT attached to the vehicle. The license plates stay with you, not the vehicle.

A repossession can take place whenever you default, which is actable completely at the discretion of the lienholder. However, if the lender gets a court order, you must comply, as that's an order that subjects disobedience is punishable. If you keep it from the rightful owner you are guilty of theft.

User Avatar

Yes. If the person repossessing the car finds it then they can take it!

User Avatar

If you don't pay your car payments, people go to your house and take it away.

Theoretically, a car can be repossessed after 1 day of being late with payments. In practice, most banks don't take action until 60 or 90 days.

Depending on your state law, there are many solutions to your car being repossessed. In all cases, information must give you information about what will happen to the vehicle. 1) Your state may give you the option to take possession back of your vehicle. Some states give you an allotted time to pay the amount defaulted on your loan plus fees associated with the repossession. 2) They can opt to sell your vehicle. You will still be able to retrieve any and all valuables left in the vehicle (as they are not permitted to keep it) and your license plate (you paid for that). Any balance after the sale of the car will be your responsibility and arrangements can be made to settle that debt. If you need assistance in finding the full disclosure about repossession in your state, please contact your local Attorney General's Office, Consumer Affairs Division
