The 'law' simply says DO NOT BREACH THE PEACE. The courts on the other hand have added a few fine points to the intepatation. IF the debtor refuses to give you the car, leave; If the debtor tells you to get off the propert, leave; if the car is behind a locked gate/door, leave; basically if the debtor objects in any way, LEAVE. Most repo company trucks are equipped with cameras and recorders to video the proceedings. That protects the agent AND the debtor. The actual California statute states the following: California Commercial Code

Division 9. Secured Transactions

Chapter 6. Default

§ 9609. Secured party's right to take possession after default

(a) After default, a secured party may do both of the following:

(1) Take possession of the collateral.

(2) Without removal, render equipment unusable and dispose of collateral on a debtor's premises under Section 9610.

(b) A secured party may proceed under subdivision (a) in either of the following ways:

(1) Pursuant to judicial process.

(2) Without judicial process, if it proceeds withoutbreach of the peace.

(c) If so agreed, and in any event after default, a secured party may require the debtor to assemble the collateral and make it available to the secured party at a place to be designated by the secured party which is reasonably convenient to both parties.

How do you know if your lender has committed a breach of peace during a vehicle repossession?

Repossessors don't have real, "Power" as, Bounty Hunters. So to compensate, They do alot of, Huffing & Puffing. Scare & Intimidation are pretty much all they have. If they tell you, "Get out of the vehicle, I'm taking it!" That's, a "Breach of Peace." If they walk into your House, Garage etc. Uninvited, That's a, " Breach ofPeace." As a rule of thumb, anything other than a peaceful repossession, Is a,You guessed it, "Breach of Peace." And keep in mind, this is taken very seriously.This is when it turns from a civil to a criminal situation. If your neighbor calls thePolice, thats a, "Breach of Peace" So always remember that you have Rights and so does the Finance Company. You'll know when that Repo Guy starts to look nervous, The Repo is in jeopardy. If you tell them to get off of your property, they have to. Laws vary from State to State. Know Your Rights!
