Understand the Legality of Repossession

The act of repossession is a means for lenders to reclaim property without having to go through court proceedings. By sidestepping the law in this way, it is easy for "repo men" to actually commit violations, either knowingly or inadvertently. For example, a repossession associate cannot enter your garage to take back your car, as this would technically be breaking and entering and committing a breach of peace.

Additionally, when repossession does occur legally, you have the right to be informed of the impending sale. This allows you time to take any necessary actions to attempt getting your vehicle back. With our repossession attorneys at your side, you can start fighting for your property through:

  • Redemption: Paying off all or most of the car's original value
  • Auction: Bidding on your own repossessed vehicle in an open auction
  • Reinstatement: If you have paid more than 30% of the existing loan, you can reinstate it and continue payments
  • Bankruptcy: Filing for the right kind of bankruptcy may cease all creditor actions
