A dealership can only repossess your car if you do not pay in accordance with the sale agreement. If you did not pay the agreed down payment, the car may be repossessed.

Can a car dealership cash your check that was used for down payment if you were never approved for financing?

A check given to the dealership will be cashed. This is normal in business. Whether they can keep the money or have to return it is based on what your purchase agreement reads. Where I live if the purchase agreement has "Subject to financing" on it the down payment must be returned if the dealer can not get you financing and you can't get outside financing. If it does not have that in it they get to keep the money.

Can you deduct interest from a personal loan taken for a down payment on a home?

You cannot borrow money for a down payment on a house, the only exception is if the loan is secured against an asset, like 401 k, borrowing against a vehicle that's paid for, from relative or friends When the bank loans money for a house, they've calculated that you won't be able to pay back your loan if you take on more debt, and borrowing the down payment is additional debt. If payments aren't made and they have to repossess the house to sell, often it sells for less than it's worth. So they can sell quickly, and a down payment prevents them from having a loss.

Can a dealership reposes your car for a downpayment even if you are up to date with the finance company and the finance company paid them already?

No, the dealership cannot repossess your car for a downpayment. However, if there was a downpayment paid, and your check bounced, that's passing bad checks, which depending on the amount of the down payment, could be a felony. Read the fine print on your contract and you'll see that if the car is related to the commission of a felony, it puts you in default, which means the finance company can repossess your car. It's all in the fine print, but dealerships and finance companies are all in business to make money, and they pay people like myself very well to make sure their interests are covered. I'd suggest paying your downpayment.

Can a lender sue for full payment prior to sell of a vehicle that has been repossessed?

Yes they can. The lender loaned money. Period. They can, and will, sue for full payment. They aren't in the car business, they are in the money business, and that's all they are concerned with. Here's how it works: You go to car dealership, and get a car. you sign your name so many times, that you get writer's cramp, and drive away. That is the end of your relationship with the dealership. What they do next is they submit the paperwork to the lender, and the lender sends them the money. Now you only deal with the lender, who has no interest in your car, or whether or not it got sold, broke down, or went off of a cliff.

Find a House With No Money Down?

If you thought that you could not buy a house with no money down, you would be wrong. There are ways to get around paying a down payment for a house if you know where to look. Find a home that has been on the market for a long period of time. The realtor will sometimes not require a down payment just to get the house sold. Homes that are sold by individuals are more likely to not require a down payment.
