What are the rights of a lienholder on a car title when it comes to repossion of a vehicle?

Can you repossess a car if you do not have a written contract on it but you are a lienholder and you have the title with your name listed as lienholder?

If you don't have a "contract", you aren't a leinholder. A lienholder must have a contract and have filed the notice with the county recorders office and the title must state you as the leinholder. If the person is named on a title as a lien holder he or she has the legal option of repossessing the vehicle as it is determined by the laws of the state where the vehicle is registered.

How can you get a copy of a vehicle title that shows the lien holder has been paid therefore the lien has been released?

Can a car that's repossessed be entered by towing company without authorization?

The order of repossession is their authorization to enter the car. If your car is being repossessed, it means there's a lien on it, and the lienholder called for the repossession to be carried out. You don't own the car - the lienholder does, until you pay off the lienholder and they relinquish the title to you. So yes, that tow company doing the repossession has every right to enter the vehicle they're repossessing.

What if they reposses your car and dont tell you?

Not all states require a repossession notification to be sent. Some require only that law enforcement be notified. Some states do not even require this much. Once the vehicle is repossessed in these states that have no requirement of notification, it is assumed that you know the reason your car is not where you left it the night before. This is deemed notification enough.
