They can come onto your property because you gave them permission when you signed the loan.If it someone elses property that is trespass but after they have the vehicle the point is moot as long as they didn't damage the property.

Can your car be repossessed from your garage on private property in CA?

A car that is actually YOURS cannot be repossessed, as it's paid off. If you have a vehicle being repossessed, they're able to do this because it's actually the finance company which owns that vehicle and possesses their title. A recovery agent can, on behalf of the lienholder, go onto private property in order to recover the lienholder's property - with limitations. They cannot cross a locked gate, and they cannot enter a locked building.


Can a repo man come on private property and move a vehicle to get to the car they want to repo?

First question: Yes, they can come on private property, with some limitations. They may not enter an enclosed building or cross a locked gate. Second question: Unless they gain consent of the owner of that vehicle, they cannot enter or move any other vehicle in order to get to the vehicle they're repossessing.


Can a car be repossed from neighbers driveway?

YES. The repo company can take the car from anywhere they want with the exception of a boot on the vehicle and/or the vehicle is in a locked property such as behind a locked fence surrounding the property or locked inside of a garage. If you do not let the person onto your property with a locked fence surrounding this is a voilation of the law and ofcourse YOU can have them arrested on the spot.

I guess he would need to use a helicopter since he cannot breach the peace. Breaking the lock or fence would be disturbing the peace, I think.

Can a company take possession of your vehicle if it is on private property?

AnswerYes, as long as it is not inside a garage or building that is either locked or unlocked. The other exception is the repossession agency may not commit a breach of peace as defined by state law while recovering a vehicle.. Also the repossession agency is not allowed to cause property damage in order to take possession of the vehicle,such as if the vehicle has a chain/cable wrapped around the rear axle secured to a pole with a padlock..They can not cut the chain/cable or the padlock because doing so is malicious destruction of property....


Can a repossesser come on to your gated property to take a vehicle in North Carolina?

Legally probably not,that assumes you do not own the propery or the property(like a private road) to get to your property so that would be trespass.But someone has to call the police to enforce the trespass violation.After the repo guy has the car there is not much you can do except to sue the lender or repo guy. Gated,YES.Gated and locked no.

In California can you be forced to open a locked garage in an attempt to repo a vehicle?

In California, repossession agents are not allowed to break into locked garages to repossess a vehicle. They must obtain permission to enter from the property owner or use legal means to gain access. If the vehicle is not accessible, they may need to seek alternative methods for repossession.
