 6A-9-609.  Secured party's right to take possession after default.

(a) Possession; rendering equipment unusable; disposition on debtor's premises.  After default, a secured party:

(1) May take possession of the collateral; and

(2) Without removal, may render equipment unusable and dispose of collateral on a debtor's premises under 6A-9-610.

(b) Judicial and nonjudicial process.  A secured party may proceed under subsection (a):

(1) Pursuant to judicial process; or

(2) Without judicial process, if it proceeds without breach of the peace; provided however, in the case of repossession of any motor vehicle without knowledge of the retail buyer, the local police department shall be notified of such repossession within one hour after obtaining such possession. In the absence of a local police department or if the local police department cannot be reached for notification, the state police shall be promptly notified of such repossession.

(c) Assembly of collateral.  If so agreed, and in any event after default, a secured party may require the debtor to assemble the collateral and make it available to the secured party at a place to be designated by the secured party which is reasonably convenient to both parties.
