AS long as you are in DEFAULT on the contract, the lender can repo the collateral. Usually that also means have full coverage ins also. Read your contract again.

it is legal, until it is paid for 100% and you have a title it belongs to them.

Your contract most likely states that the lender can demand payment in full at anytime. This means they can repossess the vehicle after demanding you pay it off.

Yes. Once the lending agreement is in default the lender may take whatever action they choose in recovering the monies owed. It is a misconception that by making a partial or token payment the creditor will not be able to assert their legal rights.

No. Most (99.9%) of the lenders require you to maintain Comp.& collision Ins. on the vehicle the money was loaned for and secured by. If you fail to do this the lender can, and in most cases, will put this Ins. on the vehicle and you will be charged. The charge for Ins. placed on the vehicle by the lender will be quite high, and it is then added to your payment. If you get your own Ins., the lender will cancel the ins. they placed on the vehicle.

I can assure you the lender does not want to repossess your vehicle. He loses money by having to do this. Sit down with them and discuss how much you can afford to pay each month. Ask them to renegotiate the loan, to a lower interest rate and smaller monthly payment. Something you can live with. Tell them you want to meet your obligation and repossession is the very last thing you want to happen.

No, not if the contract is in default. The lender/lienholder may repossess the vehicle under UCC laws as long as it can be accomplished without a breach of peace committed

They can repossess your car if you defaulted on the loan. You knew you owed the money and you knew you didn't receive a payment book. It was your obligation to contact the lender to arrange to make your payments. You should seek the advice of an attorney who may be able to negotiate with the lender on your behalf. Not making your payments for your debt on such a technicality is really dangerous.

The lender will begin the process to take possession of the property by foreclosure.

When a debtor is behind on payments, NC law allows the lender to take possession of, or "repossess" the vehicle.

This is a unique scenario, but not totally uncommon. If both vehicles are financed through the same lender, then that lender may do what is called a conversion of collateral. When this is completed, then yes either vehicle may be repossessed for default on either loan.

Yes. If the lien is valid, a written contract is not necessary and the holder can legally repossess the vehicle in conjunction with the existing laws of the state in which the vehicle is located or in some cases where it was sold.

The contract will be in default and the lender may take steps to recover the debt owed.In such a case it is unlikely that the lender would repossess the vehicle. It would be in the best interest of the borrower to contact the lender before the due date and try to extend or refinance the loan.
