Michigan is a Self Help Repossession State. What Does That Mean?

According to Steven A. Harms, former senior partner with at Muller, Muller, Richmond, Harms, & Myers, P.C., statistics suggest that if you’re attempting to collect a debt against a consumer’s delinquent account, typically so are five other creditors.

Are you ready for the challenge? 

Repossessions are a common way to collect on debts in Michigan.

According to the State of Michigan, "self-help" repossessions are governed by Section MCL 440.9609, “the Creditor-Vendor may attempt to physically repossess its security interest as long as there is no breach of the peace. This means that under the statute a Creditor or Vendor may not use conduct or behavior that is oppressive, threatening or confrontational.”

We don’t recommend “self-help” repossessions unless you’re absolutely sure of your rights and responsibilities. Professional debt collectors understand how to comply with the law and stay safe.

Garnishing a debtor’s income tax refund can be a very effective tool in getting paid. In many cases, garnishing a debtor’s state income tax refund has provided a great return for our clients compared to the effort and dollars invested in other debt collection methods.

According to the Michigan Department of Treasury, “income tax garnishments are on a first filed, first served basis. The earlier you file the better your chance of intercepting the tax refund. This is the reason why filing only one income tax garnishment per defendant works.”
