  •  I think it's easy to criminalize it by adding (0+ / 0-)

    regulatory requirements that make it MUCH less likely that it will happen if the requirements are followed, and then criminalizing failure to follow the requirements.

    To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

      The first requirement should be to post a notice on the front door of the dwelling at least 30 days before any entry to the dwelling, coupled with a requirement for legal service of papers by hand to the owner-of-record of that property, as verified by a full title search, including directly contacting whichever local or state agency stores the primary copies of titles in the jurisdiction.

      A house is not a car. A car, you need to sneak up on to repossess or the person you're repossessing it from might drive it off and hide it somewhere. There's absolutely no reason not to give advance notice when repossessing a dwelling at a fixed address.
