Good afternoon. I am sorry to hear about what you are dealing with. If you are sleeping in the car, they can not repo it. However, if you are outside of the car, the repo company could take the vehicle. The fact that you have personal possessions in it does not mean they can not tow it and if they did, you would need to go through the process of recovering these personal items. If you have concerns, you may want to store the valuable items someplace, if you think this will happen.

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.
