Isn't it Trespassing to Enter Private Property?
Generally speaking it is trespass to enter private property without permission. However the law “carves out” a space for repossession agents, allowing them to enter a property for the limited purpose of conducting a repossession. But again, they cannot enter a locked garage or closed space, or even unlatch a closed gate to do the repossession.
If you think a repossession agent was illegally trespassing on your property, schedule a free initial consultation. Part of the $300,000+ verdict for clients of Attorney Nathan DeLadurantey was related to an illegal trespass by the repossession agent. Knowing your repossession rights will ensure you're not the victim of an illegal repossession.
