Depending on how good you are at negotiating, you should either contact the lender OR a local attorney. You would be well served to have pics of the damage, statements from anyone who could vouch for the car NOT being damaged BEFORE the repo,ready before you contact anyone. Did anyone SEE the damage being done? Rem, the repo company is likely to say,"NO, we didnt do it". Soo who will convince the lender they did? You or your attorney. Good Luck

What should you do if the car was damaged while wrongfully repoed?

Every state requires repossession agents to carry insurance. If the vehicle is damaged during a repossession or especially a wrongful repossession, the agency that secured the unit must have it repaired at their own cost, or as a matter of insurance claim. Remember, do not sign for acceptance on the repairs until you are absolutely satisfied that they have been done properly.

Contact the lender, in person if possible. Have a written estimate of the damage done by the repossession company. See what the lender has to say about the damage to their vehicle, which until you pay off the loan they jointly own with you. Communicate with them and I am sure this can be worked out. Remember this would never have happened if you had not missed a payment. So keep that in mind. They still should not have damaged your car, but things happen.

In Georgia should you do a voluntary repossession or just repossession?

The second to last sentence should read - Never will a voluntary repossession cost you MORE than a forced repossession. A repo is a repo. Voluntary Repos will, in most cases, save you money due to the cut in fees associated with the repossession. In some cases these fees will not be any less and the cost of a voluntary repo and the cost of a forced repo are the same. Never will a voluntary repossession cost you less than a forced repossession. Either way, voluntary repossession is the decision I would make, due to the possibility of a lesser cost.

Can you get your leased car out of repossession?

It's not really clear what you mean by "out of repossession". Repossession is an event, not a condition. If you're asking if you can get it back after it's been repossessed, it's at least theoretically possible if you act quickly enough; you should contact the leasing agency and find out what you need to do. At minimum, you should expect to have to bring the payments current and pay the repossession expenses; you may also be asked to provide a deposit against future defaults.

Can you repo a car if you have title?

When you purchased the car, you may have received a lien title from the state. This is not a clear title of ownership. The lender in essence still owns the vehicle, at least part of it. It is held in security for the loan. If you are a repossession company or agent, you will be required to have an order of repossession. But, if you are a repossession company or agent, you should already know this.
