Repossession of what? Who? The repo agent?


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.


Yes. It is perfectly legal for a repossession agent to take possession of a vehicle when they are acting on behalf of the lender. The repossession agency does not have the option of allowing the borrower to retain the vehicle even though proof is presented that payments have been rendered. Such issues are strictly between the borrower and the lender. The lender and/or court being the only parties that can rescind the repossession action.


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.


The lender has the option of foregoing repossession and filing a suit against the borrower for the amount owed plus interest, applicable fees and legal costs.


When the tow truck makes contact with another vehicle it is in possession of that tow/repo company. If they connect to another vehicle to "move" it they are in possession of that vehicle without cause or permission. This is technically a stolen auto at that time. It is NOT legal to move other vehicles to get to another. A good repossession agent with proper use of his tools can get a vehicle out of even the most tightly squeezed places. Before you accuse a repo agent of "stealing" a vehicle, make sure he actually did!!!



It goes through a legal process, and if you fail to get your vehicle back, it will be auctioned of to help fund the government.


What qualifications and licenses are required to repossess vehicles in the state of Nebraska?


Perfectly legal, so long as they follow "peaceful repossession". If your vehicle is being repossessed, you may have some rights. For example, you may prohibit repossessors from carrying arms on your property, but ultimately, if they have an order of repossession for that car, they have a legal right to take possession of the vehicle they are there to repossess. They may not open locked doors or gates, or enter any vehicle other than the one they're repossessing.


Tobacco? No legal consequences unless under age.


Well, first, you'd have to explain how the repossession was illegal. There really isn't any such thing as "illegal repossession"... repossession is a legal process by which a lien holder can recovery property which does belong to them in response to a delinquency of payment or violation of the contract.A vehicle which has no grounds for repossession but was taken was not repossessed - that's theft, plain and simple, and if that's the case, then you'd file a police report, an investigation would commence, arrests would be made, and you'd either recover your vehicle or get an insurance payment if the vehicle was unrecoverable. I'm guessing that's not the case, since you're asking this question here.State laws on time which a delinquency must continue for before seizure of assets can be made varies by state... if this law was violated, then you're going to have to lawyer up and take the legal route against the lienholder (the repossessor is not liable in this instance, as they are contractors following the instructions of the lien holder).A criminal act on the part of the repossession agency has occurred if...A locked gate is breached in the course of the repossession.A secured building is unlawfully entered in the course of the repossession.A vehicle other than the one being repossessed was entered without permission during the course of the repossessionProperty damage occurs during the course of the repossession.In the case of a commercial vehicle, a cargo payload is taken with the vehicle.A trailer attached to the repossessed vehicle which itself is not up for repossession is taken with the vehicle.In those instances, a police report needs to be filed. However, if the repossession itself is legit, that still won't get you the vehicle back.



Pay the note or lose the car. The vehicle may be recovered from any location that is discovered provided the repossession agent does not violate the FFDCP Act or break the peace. If the debtor breaks the peace, that is on the debtor; many go to jail for such behavior.If the repossession agent is not able to notify the debtor that he has secured the vehicle, the agent is legal bound to contact the jurisdictional law enforcement agency that a repossession has taken place with 24 hours of securing the vehicle. Most contact law enforcement as they are driving away from the recovery.


No, a juvenile cannot enter into such an agreement and the repossession agent could be held legally accountable for attempting/taking part in such action.


Yes, and many people do object to their vehicles being repossessed, before and after the repossession. Unfortunately, your objection will have little effect. If you are delinquent or in default on your loan, and the vehicle was used to secure the loan, the vehicle will be repossessed. There are few legal options available to you to avoid this aside from paying the loan current.


Any information you give the lender or the lender obtains in the attempts to recover the vehicle by repossession is legal to use for that purpose.


Not without permission of the lender. A vehicle cannot be sold without a clear title of ownership. The lender is named on the title of a vehicle as the "lienholder" until the vehicle is paid for or otherwise released by the lienholder.


The question is extermely unclear. Who is under contract to whom? Bottom line - if you have a valid repossession order giving you legal possession of the vehicle, that should be all you need to seize the vehicle.


The legal remedy for vehicle repossession is covered by UCC laws. Regardless of where the lender is located the car can be repossessed under the laws of the state where it was purchased or where it is now located, whichever means is most advantageous to the lender.


That sounds odd, repossession is usually done when you've missed payments.
