What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state?

I live in SC & our cars are parked in our enclosed (fenced) backyard.

Is it legal for them to enter our fenced in backyard without our permission. This just occurred last Wednesday. While reseaching I saw that in the state of SC a creditor or their agent cannot: "enter your home without permission or a court order", even if the contract says they may. We always closed the gate but never pad locked it. We also have a "no trespassing" sign in the front & back windows. Prior to fencing in the yard people were walking thru our yard.

Any information will be greatly appreciated,
