My vehicle got towed out my parking lot without warning or notification of it being towed for non payment to the dealership that i loan it from. The tow or repo company that they used I called to ask where were they located so I can go get my personal belongings they told me they are going to charge $75 a day for me to get my personal belongings when it won't even be a whole 24hrs when I go to pick up my belongings
Georgia law provides that "[a]ny person who lawfully repossesses a motor vehicle . . . shall have a lien on [any personal property found in the repossessed motor vehicle] for any reasonable expenses incurred in storing such property or in giving notice to such owner." O.C.G.A. § 44-14-411.1(a). While I do not like this law and believe that it is often abused, this is the legal basis for a repo company to ask for money for you to get your own stuff back.
