Most loan contracts state that if you are late, they can call the entire amount due. If that has happened and you have not paid off the vehicle, they can take back ownership of the vehicle. Your only option is to pay it off, sell it or turn it back.

If your truck is repossessed can you still be sued?

When a vehicle is repossessed by the lender it is sold at a public auction for as near the fair market value as is possible. The amount the vehicle is sold for is deducted from the balance of the loan and the borrower is responsible for the repayment of that amount plus any interest and additional fees. If the borrower is unable to make a payment agreement with the lender, the lender does have the option of suing for the amount owed and legal costs. It isn't possible to give a definite answer on if the lender will or will not sue the borrower for the debt.


If your car is repossessed in Illinois and the lender wants full payment can you file for bankruptcy within a certain amount of days so that your able to keep your car?

Bankruptcy does not prevent a vehicle from being repossessed. If the debtor/borrower wants to keep the vehicle they must reaffirm the loan with the lender. Furthermore, new bankruptcy laws require the borrower to repay the entire amount of the loan and applicable fees rather than the discrepancy between the loan and the amount recovered in the sale of the vehicle.

What happens if you stop paying insurance on a vehicle that you have a loan on?

The loan could be called due in full; and, if not paid, the vehicle could be repossessed. But usually notice will be first provided, requesting proof of reinstatement of insurance coverage. The lender of the funds used to purchase a vehicle asks for a number of terms when offering a loan to a prospective borrower. The purchased vehicle is the collateral, or security, for the loan. Lenders reduce their risk, making the whole auto loan business possible, by reserving the right to take possession and ownership of the vehicle should the borrower default, or stop paying. One of the conditions the lender almost always places on the borrower is the requirement that the borrower insure the vehicle with "comprehensive" insurance at a level that protects the lender's investment in case of vehicle loss or damage. A lien in favor of the lender, recorded on the title, legally protects the lender. When the insurance is written on a vehicle purchased with an auto loan, the terms usually provide that payment upon a vehicle loss goes first to the lender. Thus the lender has and has record of a potential obligation to the lender. So when the policy holder stops paying, the insuror will usually notify the lender that coverage is no longer in effect. The lender will then likely notify the borrower that he/she must immediately reinstate insurance coverage and provide proof thereof. If proof of insurance is not quickly sent, the lender can consider the borrower to be in default of the loan terms, even though loan payments are continued. Depending on the specific terms of the loan agreement, the lender can call in the loan, requiring immediate and full payment--payment of the entire outstanding principal. Repossession could follow a refusal to pay.

How long does it take for a car to be repossessed after the request was made to repossess it?

The time frame depends upon the lender. Regardless of whether the repossession is voluntarily done by the borrower or a forced repossession by the lender the consequences remain the same. The borrower will be responsible for any deficiency between the amount that the repossessed vehicle is sold for at public auction and the remaining balance on the loan agreement including added fees and penalties. The respossession will also remain on the borrower's credit report for the required 7 years. Be advised, a lender has no legal obligation to recover the vehicle but can instead file a lawsuit against the borrower for the entire amount of the loan plus legal and other associated costs.

Do you have to pay on a repossessed car if not sold?

If it has been repossessed the lender will usually stop all collection activities until the vehicle is disposed of through sale. It is unusual but the lender could decide to keep the vehicle but should they do that than they waive their right to a deficiency.


Can your car get repossessed with only one payment due?

Yes. Always read your contract. The area under default will usually specify yourlien holders right to take possession. You can be repossessed for more reasons than just defaulting on your payments. Again check your contract. You can be repossessed for not keeping your lender updated with your full coverage insurance. If you are using the vehicle for illegal purposes or if you are not taking care of the vehicle- your lender can repossess the unit. Read your contract.


Does the lender have to notify you as a cosigner if the primary borrower fails to make a payment?

No, but if the borrower misses enough payments, the cosigner will start getting collection calls as well.


What happens after a vehicle is repossessed?

The lender sells the vehicle, sometimes at auction. They attempt to get whatever they can for it. Often the price the lender gets is less than the outstanding loan. If the lender gets less for the vehicle than the amount that is owed, the lender will seek the balance (the difference between what was owed and what they sold it for) from the borrower. So, lets say you bought a car for $1000. You quit making payments. You still owed $800 when the vehicle was repo'd. The lender sells the vehicle at auction and gets $500 for it. The lender will come after you for the remaining $300. That's pretty much how it works. Bottom line: make your payments. This is where aflac comes in handy.
