Tennessee Repossession Laws

For any and all Tennessee residents including those that are our clients, we have compiled a free resource, with all of the relevant repossession rules and regulations included. This info is pertaining to the state’s property recovery protocols that are very essential to know with any repo case.

More importantly, a repossession in Tennessee must be consistent with the security interests shown on title held by the lien-holder. And, the license plates have to remain with the debtor or it is simply unacceptable. Please also consider that repossession recovery is only permitted as long as there is no a disturbance in domestic peace. If you need additional license registration info, you can call the Tennessee Motor Vehicle Division at (615) 741-3101. And, title with lien released, odometer statement, bill of sale, and affidavit of sale repossession are required for liquidation to occur. This is the most essential info for you to consider before and during our repo services.
