Contact the lender and make arrangements for them to secure it. If it is discovered that you are assisting in hindering repossession, or when the vehicle is found to be in your possession, you could be criminally charged. This could vary from accessory to a felonious act to as serous as grand theft auto.

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.

A vehicle is a secured debt, therefore bankruptcy action would not reverse the repossession. Bankruptcy only places a temporary halt to repossession or foreclosure of secured property.

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.

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.

Is there a form giving permission for a repossession of a vehicle?

Well, yes, there is. It is called the loan or finance agreement you signed when you got the loan for the vehicle. When you sign that, you give permission for the bank to repo the vehicle if you don't make the payments. Unless you are talking about a "Voluntary Surrender", if that is what you are talking about, just call your bank and they should have one.

What can I do I fell a couple of payments behind but caught them up. I didn't know my vehicle had been on the repossession list the repossession man didn't know i was off the list and damaged my car?

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.
