June 1, 2016 — Model Law

Existing law governing repossession of motor vehicles and other personal property leaves consumers vulnerable to the whims of creditors and largely in the dark as to the nature of the process. Secured creditors can, without any court or other government supervision, decide when to repossess the consumer’s property, seize it without notice, and sell it in a manner it chooses–often at an auction where the consumer is barred and that is held at a time and place hidden from the consumer.
