Yes. If the loan is at a bank where the party holds accounts. This is referred to as a "set off'. Most bank loans will have a set off provision included in the loan contract. It allows the bank to seize the person's bank account(s) for monies owed, w/o a court order or other legal procedure.

Can you open an account with a bank if you have had a charge off with a past account?

Typically no, once your account gets to the point of charged off, it has been overdrawn for roughly 45 days (give or take). Your name and SSN then get reported to ChexSystems which then notifies every bank of your charged off account. Not many banks want to risk losing their money to you if you've already lost money for another bank. Your best chance to get an account is to go back to the bank your account was charged off, explain what happened, and hope for the best. And next time balance your checkbook... daily.

If you have accounts in the bank that holds your mortgage, the bank can take the money in your accounts to set off what you owe in the foreclosure.

How long does a large check take to clear?

It depends on your bank and how long they think they can hold YOUR money before you get upset and close your account and move your money to another bank. Don't forget that Bank of America's CEO Brian Moynihan stated that his bank has a right to earn a profit. They are in business to make money, which they do off of your money. And to provide customers with timely service is somewhat of an afterthought these days. The longer they hold your money, the more they can make.

The short answer is no. A charge off means you didn't finish paying off the loan. A charge off occurs when the the owner of the car fails to make the monthly payments. After 121 days of no activity on an auto loan the bank declares the loan a bad debt and the do a charge off to get that bad debt off of their books. They will never stop trying to collect the bad debt or repossess the collateral. The only way to obtain the title is to get a lien satisfaction letter from the lienor, (bank). The only way to get that letter is to satisfy the lien. So if your loan has been charged off you have to call the bank and see if you can get a payoff quote. Payoff the car get the letter and title
