Vehicle Repossessions


If your vehicle is repossessed, your bank requires you to first come to the agency whose jurisdiction it is where the vehicle was repossessed in order to pay an administrative fee. For Santa Rosa Police Department, this is a $15 fee.


After you pay the fee, you then take the original receipt to the repossessor and show them in order to get your vehicle back and in good standing with the lien holder. (See Government Code Sections 26751 and 41612.)
