Can they enter open garage. Kansas. Plus it is a payday

Customer Question
Can they enter open...

Can they enter open garage

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Kansas. Plus it is a payday loan

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

No.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I have tried to pay this off over the years. It keeps going, no end. Now I am having money problems, and they want full payment, which can not afford. So the letters they send have me on the repo list

Can who enter an open garage? Was this a repo, and if so, for what item?

the people who have the title loan on my auto. They tried, but I caught them.
Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 9 months ago

Thank you.

Believe it or not, yes they can. They can do a repo under the following rules:

1) They cannot trespass unto your property by opening the garage, opening the door, etc. However they can enter a peripheral part of your property if the vehicle is there, can be driven out, and they have clear access to it.

2) They must do this peacefully.

So #1 applies - if you left your garage door open, they could have entered it only to pick up the vehicle.

Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved rudeness or wrong information. Please be kind!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
