The lilelihood is very good, almost certain, you will have a balance due after the sale. The only way they could get the full amount due is IF you had made a HUGE downpayment. You will have a repo and a judgment on your CR IF you don't pay any deficiency balance.

How does voluntary repossession work on an RV in NC?

Instead of having it forcibly repossessed, you call your finance company and tell them you're voluntarily having it repossessed. They may send a tow service to collect it, or they may ask you to take it to the repossessor. It'll be repossessed, auctioned off, and the amount they get from the auction will be deducted from the amount you owe. The finance company may offer a settlement at that point for an amount less than what you owe on that vehicle - that's up to the finance company.

Do you have to pay the whole vehicle off if it is repossessed?

Once a car has been repossessed, you as the owner of the vehicle have the obligation to repay any amount still owed on the loan. Once a car is repossessed, it is often sold in a repossessed cars auction by the finance company. The amount which the car was sold for will be deducted from the total loan amount and then the difference will be owed by yourself. So yes you would have to pay the whole vehicle off if it was repossessed.

What happens if you can't pay any remaining balance on a repossessed car and do not have a job?

The car will be sold at auction. Whatever it sells for at auction will be deducted from the balance remaining.

Your car was on a buy back list because of problems Before the buy back could go through your car was repossessed What are your options?

Then the car was never yours - it 'belonged' to the finance company until you have paid the full amount. When a person buys something they pay the seller the purchase price - you didn't pay that money, the finance company did, so they were the buyer and you were using it with their permission until you paid the price to them. The finance company will benefit from any transactions concerning it.

Can you sell your car after the car has been repossessed?

No. A car is repossessed because you failed to finish paying for it. Since you never fully paid for it, it's not yours. No. You do not own the car once it has been repossessed. To sell the car you would need the title, which is in the hands of the finance company. After a repossession, usually 30 days later the finance company places the car in an auto auction. There it is sold to the highest bidder. In the rare case that the net proceeds from the sale exceed what you owe for the car (plus interest, penalties, repo fee, etc.) the finance company has to send you a check. If you can redeem the car by paying the full past due amount plus interest before they place it in the auction sale, then you can sell the car.

Why would you get a refund for overpayment on a repossessed car?

When your car is repossied in nc what can the finance company do to you?

When the car is repossessed.... you have a certain number of days to redeem your car. If you don't redeem the car, you will have 30 days in which to get your personal items from the company BUT the car will be auctioned off... for a lower amount than what is usually due ...this will leave balance that is called a deficit balance. The company will then add all expenses to this balance and then take legal action. (Expenses added--- tow truck, car lot fees-daily) to store the car, cleaning up the car, new plates if needed, and insurance) If you don't take the steps now to keep this car, you can get garnished and ruin your credit for a very long time.

Can your IRA get levied upon if your car is repossessed?

Not at that stage of the process. Once the car is repossessed, it will be sold at auction for whatever amount it goes for. Usually very little.

If the creditor gets a judgment for the difference, then it can levy upon your IRA.
