Can the state of North Carolina charge for personal property when they repossess your car?

The state doesn't repossess your car - private companies do that on behalf of the lienholder. They don't charge you for private property left in your car when they repossess it - that would be illegal. They charge a "storage fee" for the items they remove from your car. Underhanded, yes, but they can legally do it.

They can do so if they are not breaking a lock or damaging property in the process. They may not enter a private residence. They must cease if told to do so, otherwise the repossession becomes non-peaceful and may be illegal. If in doubt, call the police, do NOT start an altercation or you may be held responsible.

How do you legally repossess a car from someone late on their payments that's in lien to you but registered to them?

From my Experience All you really need is a written Contract on the said property, Dealers, Used car lots, and Banks register the property financed so it shows the lien on the title. Private sales with money owed if you have a written contract you can repossess on site. if this is an oral agreement, You will have to go through the small claims division of the county courts

Can you keep a security guard off your property?

if it is private property yes. If you live in a complex that has security guards, you can keep them off to an extent. If its private property, I would suggest to notify them that it is private and you want them to leave. If they do not leave you have the right to call the police and have trespassing charges brought against them.
