Asset Repossession

In New Zealand, all repossession agents are now required to be certified and licensed under the Private Security Personnel & Private Investigators Act 2010 and to ensure compliance with the Credit Contracts & Consumer Finance Amendment Act 2014.

All repossession agents engaged by The Neill Group are licensed to comply with current legislation. The Neill Group’s repossessions agents are familiar with the repossession process as well as the legal requirements relating to the repossession of assets, goods and motor vehicles subject to a finance agreement or credit contract.

When a finance company or lending institution holds a security interest in an asset and the debtor stops paying, they are then within their rights to recover the asset. However, going about the recovery process without any unnecessary complications or legal issues requires competent, experienced and licensed repossession agents.

It’s important to ensure your chosen repossession agent or repossession agency has the correct licensing requirements to conduct repossession activities lawfully. If the situation is handled incorrectly, things can escalate quickly and may result in legal disputes, trespass or breaches of privacy.

Achieving full closure to a situation may require the final steps of asset or property recovery. This can be straight-forward, where the individuals and item of property may be easily found and repossessed.

In some situations, additional steps may be required to locate the individual or the asset. In situations where the owner of an asset, such as a motor vehicle, becomes disagreeable, our licensed repossession agents are trained to handle the situation professionally and assertively.

Our professionals are knowledgeable enough to overcome objections and explain the situation clearly and with professionalism. Our nationwide repossession services, include, but are not limited to:

· Asset Tracing

· Complex Repossessions

· Legal Document Serving

· Negotiating Arrangements

· Field Visits

· Address Confirmation

· Verification of Financial Data

· Property Inspections

Our highly experienced licensed repossession agents and field agents have experience negotiating with people who have deliberately concealed assets or property, we often carry out field visits to confirm addresses, our field visits often result in the successful negotiation of a payment arrangement. We are highly experienced, professional and responsive with the ability to manage any situation.

Please note: The Neill Group will not engage in debt collection or repossession assignments for private individuals or third tier lenders.
