Recently, I've obtained a second vehicle with one of my previous relationships (bad decision). We recently parted ways and have been fighting on it for quite sometime, and have been through a number of agreements. One of which, was that neither one of us would drive the car until we have reached an agreement. He recently admitted to driving the vehicle and I had asked for it back, to which there was some difficulty with. This individual lives on private property, and denied me my right to the vehicle despite inquiring several times. The vehicle was reclaimed and it is now in my possession, to which, a few months later this individual surrendered all rights to it. Is this considered trespassing if someone went on the property to reclaim the vehicle? A property where one has been to before, and has received consent to be there, prior to this separation?
Trespassing is essentially when you enter private property without permission from the owner. Permission can be withdrawn at anytime so being allowed previously somewhere does not mean you are allowed anytime you want. There is no self-help. I doubt anything will come of this, but yes this could be seen as trespassing. Next time get an attorney or use the police.
Trespass is entering the property of another without permission, at the time of entering or remaining thereon.
Any response I provide is meant as a general view on the subject and is no way intended to be specific legal advice to any individual. If you wish specific advice, you should hire and consult with an attorney of your choosing.
