Thank you for your questions:
1. In Florida, the license plates continue to belong to the debtor, and the debtor has a right to possession of those plates. If the recovery agency (the repossessor) did not leave the plates for the debtor, the debtor can recover them from where the vehicle was taken. The debtors should receive notice within 5 days of where the vehicle is being held.
2. As a co-debtor, you are entitled to notice of the repossession and how it will be disposed of. If you don't receive that notice, that would be a defense to any action against you for a deficiency judgment.
In what time frame is the dealer required to notify me of the repossession and sale?
