There are certain strict procedures that an automobile repossessor must follow when he is repossessing your car. The repossessor must notify the police that such vehicle is being repossessed, you did before or after the repossession has occurred. In either case, the police should know right away that the vehicle was repossessed. If this is not the case, then the vehicles like to have been stolen.

Only if the repossessor has an order for repossession of the trailer, as well. And even then, only under certain circumstances. If it's a commercial tractor trailer, and there's a load in that trailer, they may not take it, as the order of repossession does not cover the load, and they will face criminal charges if they do such.In the course of repossessing a vehicle, the repossession agency may not enter or move any vehicle (including a trailer) which is not in their order for repossession. They may detach a trailer from a truck being repossessed, but they can't actually take it.

After a repossession, you will need to pay a fine usually. For example, if this was a car being repossessed, you would have to pay a certain amount to get it back.

All persons have rights that are recognized and protected. Once these rights are violated, there are certain remedies that are afforded by law.

Turning in a car prior to formal repossession activity is still a repossession. It differs only in the fact that it is voluntary and may not affect your credit quite as adversely. It does demonstrate a certain level of responsibility.

I am not 100% on this but I am almost certain that they can as if an item is inside the home they can come in to take those

People can repossess in certain circumstances. Those circumstances depend on other circumstances. If you have a legal problem consult a lawyer

If it's not actually true, then you can dispute it with the reporting agency. If it is true, then you don't "get it removed." It will be removed after a certain amount of time has elapsed.

Be certain that is what happened. If you did nothing to initiate the assault, file a complaint. If you did something to initiate the repossession agent's defense of himself, turn yourself in.

In Nazi Germany, human rights that were violated were freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, freedom of protest, and the freedom to buy and sell certain goods. The only way to be accepted was to be a Nazi and a strong follower of Adolf Hitler.

Yes, as long as an active repossession order exists, the vehicle will eventually be recovered. If it is seen in towing position by a recovery agent, he will take it. Keep in mind that many repossession agencies have spotters who do nothing but stake-out wanted units, or look for them in public locations where recovery agents may secure them. Any attempt to hide the vehicle or prevent the recovery could be prosecuted. Repossession is a time game, an inevitability. Hundreds of thousands of vehicles are repossessed in the US every year. Less than 1% of 1% of the vehicles up for repossession are successfully hidden for any significant time. And, some states are passing laws that will prevent parties who have active repossession orders against vehicles registered to them from registering any vehicles in that state. If you have active arrangements with the lender, hope your payment reaches them before the recovery agent is able to secure the vehicle in question. Be certain to contact the lender and get their assurance that repossession activites have been cancelled once the payment is received. Your best course of action is to take the payment to the lender, and while there have them call the repossession agency who has the active order and witness them cancelling the order.

Yes, it is true that repossession agents must verify VINs before taking a vehicle. They have to be certain that they have the correct vehicle.

Many representatives who were about to vote for the Constitution wanted assurances about certain rights that could not be violated by a strong federal government. So the 10 were passed and there were a few that weren't

That is a very complex question. Simply put: the role of the FBI is to investigate the violation of certain Federal laws and bring those who violated those Federal laws to justice.
