Are you a victim of repossession by TD Bank?  Was your car, truck, motorcycle, boat or RV taken back by the bank in the past 6 years?

Flitter Milz helps consumers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and nationwide, who had their car, truck, motorcycle, boat or RV repossessed by TD Bank. Whether you were behind on loan payments or not, TD Bank may have violated your consumer rights.  The bank must follow the law when vehicles are repossessed. Either providing improper repossession documents, or wrongfully repossessing a vehicle, the bank may be liable for the repossession of your vehicle.

Improper Repossession:

When a consumers sign a loan agreement with TD Bank, they agree to make payments on time and in full for the length of the loan.  As well, they agree to other terms, such as maintaining insurance on the vehicle.  If the consumer does not abide by the terms, TD Bank could repossess the vehicle.

However, after the repossession, TD Bank is required to communicate with the consumer and state terms to retrieve the vehicle.  This notice may be called Notice of Intent to Sell Property or Notice of Repossession. If the consumer does not meet these terms, TD Bank could sell the vehicle at a private sale or auction.  Once the vehicle is sold, TD Bank is required to send a second written notice to the consumer stating the selling price of the vehicle.  This notice is called a Deficiency Notice.  After the sale, there may be a balance owed by the consumer, or a surplus which TD Bank would owe to the consumer.

Flitter Milz will evaluate the details surrounding the repossession of your car, truck, motorcycle, boat or RV.  In addition, we will evaluate your loan agreement, and all documents or correspondence sent by the bank.  As a victim of vehicle repossession, you have rights.

Wrongful Repossession

When a consumer falls behind on auto loan payments with TD Bank, the car, truck, motorcycle, boat or RV can be repossessed.  However, the bank is required to act in a "commercially reasonable" way in repossessing the vehicle.  This means, no confrontation or violence, and providing the consumer with proper documents after the repossession.

Circumstances which may be considered a wrongful repossession or abuse by a Repo Agent.

  • Physical altercation with the repo man
  • Damage to repossessed vehicle by the repo man
  • Damage to personal property by the repo man (i.e. garage, fence, other vehicle, lawn, etc.)
  • Uninvited entry to your home by the repo man

Police Involvement:  Keeping the Peace v. Breaching the Peace

The repo agent is to inform the local police department of its intention to seize a vehicle.  During the repossession, the repo agent may call to have the police assist with the repossession. Other times, the consumer may call for police assistance.

The police are to aid in keeping the peace.  If the situation becomes volatile, they police are to assist in diffusing the confrontation between the repo agent and the consumer .  But the police are not supposed to assist or enable the repossession.  The police are not supposed to order the consumer to turn over the keys, or to "step aside" and let the repo man take the car or truck.

If the police threaten arrest or command that the vehicle be turned over, they may have crossed the line from keeping the peace into breaching the peace.  This could violate the consumer's constitutional rights.
