People who are in danger of having their vehicles repossessed in Pennsylvania should understand the rights that they have. There are many things that repossessors are not allowed to do under the law, but they still may do them. If your vehicle has been wrongfully repossessed, you may have legal rights.
Repossessors are not allowed to remove a vehicle if you tell them to leave regardless of where your vehicle is parked. They also are not allowed to damage your property or to enter into an enclosed area without your permission. Repossessors cannot threaten you with force or use force in order to gain possession of your vehicle.
Repossessors are not able to refuse to leave your property when you tell them to. They also cannot threaten to call the police or lie to you. They are forbidden from trying to enlist the help of your neighbors to repossess your vehicle or to tell them about the repossession. If the repossessor in your case engaged in any of these types of actions, you may be able to hold the repossessor and the bank that hired him or her liable to pay damages to you.
