If you take your personal property before the vehicle is picked up, you can keep it. If you voluntarily turn in the vehicle you get to keep anything you want. If they have to hunt it down and tow it off, you're just out of luck. They'll throw away anything that was in it and if someone picks it up, it's theirs.
This is not true.. The creditor must account for all personal belongings found in a repossessed car.. The below answer came from the following site... http://www.fair-debt-collection.com/searches/repossession.html
"What happens to personal property left in my car?
Personal property does not apply to improvements made to the car, such as a CD Player, stereo or luggage rack. It only applies to items not connected to the vehicle. The creditor or whoever repossessed the car CANNOT keep or sell any personal property found inside. If the creditor or whoever repossessed the car cannot account for personal property left in the vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation and should consult with an attorney"
No Way. Its Your Stuff !
same as anywhere else. they CANT keep it, but may charge you a fee for inventory and storage.
a personal property is something you bought or got ,and you keep it personal
After your vehicle has been repossessed, the repossessing company must contact you (often via the creditor) to notify you where your personal property can be recovered. Repossession agents are required to keep the property for thirty days to allow you to recover it, but they will charge you a storage fee, and pretty much every one will require that fee be paid before they surrender your personal property. Regarding an agent of yours being permitted to recover your personal property, it is possible, but may be difficult.
No that's called stealing.....
if it is impounded
no,because it is your property and the car really wasnt,so you should get your stuff back.
No. It is called theft by conversion.
A creditor may not keep or sell any personal property found insidetje car. This does not include most improvements made to the car, such as a stereo or luggage rack. If your creditor cannot account for valuable articles left in your car, you may be entitled to compensation and you should consult with an attorney. IN Georgia you have 30 days to remove any personal property Left in a repo.
Yes, the business where the vehicle is located must allow the retrieval of personal items from the impounded vehicle, and is required to keep those items secured until they have been returned to the legal owner or the court rules otherwise.
Personal property? All of it. There may be some limitation on major appliances, but the home furnishings are yours.
