What Is Repossession?

Lenders that make loans secured by personal property have a right to repossess the property if borrowers default on payments or otherwise breach their contracts. Creditors are permitted to use self-help repossession of the property ins some situations under the law, if peaceably retaking possession of the collateral from debtors after default is possible. Alternatively there are legal actions that can be filed with the Court to regain possession of the property pledged as collateral for the loan   without resorting to legal action. Once a creditor has taken possession of the collateral, it can either keep it or sell it. If the debtor resists the repossession of the secured property, however, the lender can take legal action.

What Is Replevin?

A person can secure collateral through replevin lawsuit , when access to the property is unavailable. Replevin is an efficient way to legally gain possession or to repossess collateral when self-help repossession is not viable.  A replevin action is based on the unlawful detention of personal property. The objective of a replevin is to obtain possession of the property through order of the courtr. If the collateral is at risk of being seriously damaged or secreted, a court order can be obtained for its immediate repossession by a sheriff. By bringing a Replevin action, sometimes, we can often recover collateral much more quickly than through repossession.
