Personal Property in You Vehicle When Repossessed

A creditor cannot keep or sell any of the personal property found in your vehicle regardless of the method used to repossess the automobile.  In most states the creditor needs to tell you what items were found in the vehicle and how to get them back.  The creditor may also be required to prevent the items from being removed or stolen from the vehicle.  If items are missing from your vehicle, then you may want to speak to an attorney about your rights.
