Will you be able to buy a new car if you let them repossess your current car?
You will not be able to immediately buy a new car if you are financing it because it will be difficult to get a loan. After some time has passed you should be able to get financed with a higher interest rate.

Here is a variety of advice: . If I were you I would check out your county for repossessions to be sold they generally sale for 2/3 of the loan value. . I would NOT buy a …car that has been repoed. Simple logic tells me that the driver was NOT doing ANY repairs or even oil changes, before it got pulled away. In my years of experience doing vehicle repos, (yes I do know what I am talking about here) the number of outright clunkers was higher than 75 percent. . Junk on wheels is what we used to call them. Run to death and barely able to be driven. Buyer beware is what I say . . What if my truck worth 15k is repoed because I quit paying on the 20k loan. Then I buy it at auction because I know I took care of it? Heck, I could even dirty it up inside a little first so it will auction for less. . It won't work. If it was repo'd by a buy-here-pay-here lot, they'll put it back on the lot and certainly aren't going to deal with you. If it was taken by a bank or manufacturer's finance company, it is going to a wholesale auction where you need a dealer's license to bid. Some smaller credit unions or finance companies will sell their repo's in their parking lot, but that's just like the BHPH place - they aren't going to talk to you. Besides, you STILL OWE the difference between the loan (plus repo fees) and what it brings. It's cheaper to make your payments. . It's fine to buy a repo car if you take someone with you who knows a bit about cars. Where repo cars are sold is different from place to place. Try Googling your city and car auctions or else looking up auctions in the phone book. . Call your local Credit Unions and ask them if they have any vehicles for sale. Most of them do these days. These are high quality cars for good prices and you are buying from a reliable source. Credit Unions will also give you good financing terms to get the cars off of their books. You could search online or just open the phone book and start calling.
You need to give the car to the lender - if they are too far away then you need to call them and tell them where it is and ask them how they want to get it.
If you are trying to buy a specific car, you can contact the bankor whoever holds the lien on the vehicle for more information. Youmay also start online with a free directory …search for banks andother financial institutions who are selling repossessed cars. There are also other alternatives. You can go to either offline oronline public auctions. Even though these auctions are attended bya high number of car dealers, you can still find very good deals,particularly since you're buying for yourself ( not to resellafterwards ). Besides public auctions, you might also consider government carauctions. They're repossessed auctions where a government contractwas involved in the original purchase. They're pretty safeenvironments and you can save up to 90% or more by attending theright auction. Just find as many as you can in your area ( so thatyou increase your chances of finding one with few other bidders )and familiarize yourself with the local rules and codes. Beforebidding, always have the vehicle inspected by a mechanic and get avehic
Answer . \nYes, you can. My father did this. The thing is, you get a really high interest rate. You could try to have someone co-sign to get the interest rate down a lit…tle.. Answer . Yes but why would you want too??save your money and buy a used car outright.Then\nthere are no car payments or paying full coverage insurance.Think of the money\nyou will save.
If you own two cars and are able to make payments on only one and are letting one get repossessed can the finance company for the repossessed car do anything toward the remaining car?
possiblity . \nPossibly yes. They can resale your repossessed car dirt cheap and sue you for the difference in what you owed and what they got for it. Then they can sue you… to collect that difference. If they win the suit they can have the sheriff pick up anything you own to sell at public auction to help pay that money they supposedly "lost". It's possible but not real likely. It depends on the mob that runs the finance Company
If you are 3 months behind on your car payments can you still buy another car and let the other car go into repossession?
Answer to your Question . \nno
A car can still be repossessed if it has scratches or some slightdamage. The current value of the car is normally used when nettingoff the debts.
First off buying a repossessed car is a horrible idea. You are buying a car that someone could not even make payments on. Do you think they took care of this vehicle? Do you t…hink it was serviced regularly, the oil/filter were changed, and anything else necessary was done. More than likely the car was neglected and just driven. Unless the car as very low mileage, these cars are usually run to death. You can wear a car out in short order if you neglect it and drive it as though you know you are going to loose it. Saying that, if you insist on buying one, contact the lenders in your area and ask about their repo cars and when/where they will be sold.
When you finance or lease a vehicle, your creditor holds important rights on the vehicle until you've made the last loan payment or fully paid off your lease obligation. These… rights are established by the signed contract and by state law. If your payments are late or you default on your contract in any way, your creditor may have the right to repossess your car.. Talking with Your Creditor It is easier to try to prevent a vehicle repossession from taking place than to dispute it afterward. Contact your creditor when you realize you'll be late with a payment. Many creditors will work with you if they believe you'll be able to pay soon, even if slightly late. . Sometimes you may be able to negotiate a delay in your payment or a revised schedule of payments. If you reach an agreement to modify your original contract, get it in writing to avoid questions later. Still, your creditor may refuse to accept late payments or make other changes in your contract and may demand that you return the car. By voluntarily agreeing to a repossession, you may reduce your creditor's expenses, which you would be responsible for paying. . Remember that even if you return the car voluntarily, you're responsible for paying any deficiency on your credit or lease contract, and your creditor still may report the late payments and/or repossession on your credit report. . Seizing the Car In many states, your creditor has legal authority to seize your vehicle as soon as you default on your loan or lease. Because state laws differ, read your contract to find out what constitutes a "default." In most states, failing to make a payment on time or to meet your other contractual responsibilities are considered defaults. In some states, creditors are allowed on your property to seize your car without letting you know in advance.. But creditors aren't usually allowed to "breach the peace" in connection with repossession. In some states, removing your car from a closed garage without your permission may constitute a breach of the peace.. Creditors who breach the peace in seizing your car may have to pay you if they harm you or your property.. A creditor usually can't keep or sell any personal property found inside. State laws also may require your creditor to use reasonable care to prevent others from removing your property from the repossessed car. If you find that your creditor can't account for articles left in your car, talk to an attorney about whether your state offers a right to compensation.. Selling the Car Once your creditor has repossessed your car, they may decide to sell it in either a public or private sale. In some states, your creditor must let you know what will happen to the car. For example, if a creditor chooses to sell the car at public auction, state law may require that the creditor tells you the date of the sale so that you can attend and participate in the bidding. If the vehicle is to be sold privately, you may have a right to know the date it will be sold.. In either of these circumstances, you may be entitled to buy back the vehicle by paying the full amount you owe, plus any expenses connected with its repossession (such as storage and preparation for sale).. In some states, the law allows you to reinstate your contract by paying the amount you owe, as well as repossession and related expenses (such as attorney fees). If you reclaim your car, you must make your payments on time and meet the terms of your reinstated or renegotiated contract to avoid another repossession.. The creditor must sell a repossessed car in a "commercially reasonable manner" - according to standard custom in a particular business or an established market. The sale price might not be the highest possible price - or even what you may consider a good price. But a sale price far below fair market value may indicate that the sale was not commercially reasonable.. Paying the Deficiency A deficiency is any amount you still owe on your contract after your creditor sells the vehicle and applies the amount received to your unpaid obligation. For example, if you owe $2,500 on the car and your creditor sells the car for $1,500, the deficiency is $1,000 plus any other fees you owe under the contract, such as those related to the repossession and early termination of your lease or early payoff of your financing.. In most states, a creditor who has followed the proper procedures for repossession and sale is allowed to sue you for a deficiency judgment to collect the remaining amount owed on your credit or lease contract.. Depending on your state's law and other factors, if you are sued for a deficiency judgment, you should be notified of the date of the court hearing. This may be your only opportunity to present any legal defense.. If your creditor breached the peace when seizing the vehicle or failed to sell the car in a commercially reasonable manner, you may have a legal defense against a deficiency judgment. An attorney will be able to tell you whether you have grounds to contest a deficiency judgment.. Remember this repossession will stay on your credit for 7 years.. Answer . They take it to auction. Sell it. Whatever is left on the loan you owe.
The biggest turn-off when buying Repossessed Car: As you already know, Repossessed Car Auction is a great way to buy your new car or other types of vehicle (boat repo aucti…on, RV repo auction, ...); however, it seems almost too good to be true, because the price is very low. The catch lies in the fact that Repossessed Cars were taken from their previous owners by the government, so they are basically used cars. Therefore, you must take all the steps necessary to find out about the history or the damages of the repossessed car yourself. Why you should still go for Repossessed Car: The easiest answer is: because it is very cheap. Normally, you can find one at as low as $200. Furthermore, even though repossessed cars have been used, they were taken away because their owners couldn't pay the bills, not because they were damaged or got into accidents. Thus, most of the times you will find very good repossessed cars that are perfectly normal and usable. Still, remember to check its history and VIN number! Also, remember to visit websites like www.vehicleshq.com to prepare your knowledge before going to a real repossessed car auction.
Repossessed cars can be purchased directly from Banks and Credit Unions. Many larger Banks and Credit Unions will simply send the vehicles off to "dealer only" auctions, but m…ost of the smaller Banks and Credit Unions will offer these vehicles for sale on their websites to the general public. If you view the "related links" section on this page there is a website which is a free repo finder tool that lists direct links to Credit Union repossession across America. You can browse local repossessions in your area and then contact the individual Banks and Credit Unions about purchasing the vehicles.
In Cars & Vehicles
I have seen it done, yes.
In Cars & Vehicles
Varies state by state. But the common theme is once the repo guy is in control, i.e. behind the wheel or has a tow hook ON THE VEHICLE, one cannot stop the repo. Most jurisdic…tions consider this a 'civil problem' until one party assaults or makes threat of harm to the other. This applies to both sides. Some states allow a marshal or constable to standby to keep the peace for a court ordered repo. In that situation, any attempt to resist will cause that person to be a guest in the Graybar Hotel. Again, CHECK your states laws and regulations.
In Auto Loans and Financing
yes it will.
It would be better just to turn it in but it's a lot of work trying to locate it and recover it.
