YES, after they get a judgment for the amount still owing on the contract. That amount can be applied as a lien against other property you own.

Whatever the sale of the auction is the bank will take it and pay the cost for the auction and whatever the balance is will be applied to what is owed.

Usually, yes. The bank will dispose of the car (often by auction) and then come to you for whatever they lost and all fees associated with the repossession and sale.

certainly NOT, IF you AND the bank agree that it is paid in full. It appears the bank doesnt agree with that part. Call a local attorney for state specific advice.

The LENDER. Lenders tend to have deals with auction companies. ALL repo'd cars go to auction, most of which are dealer only. You should be able to ask your bank where it went, then call that auction to see if it public or dealer only.

The bank will put up the house for auction and recover the money loaned to you. Residual balance of the liability, if any, standing against your name post auction will be returned to you.

Buying a repossessed car today can be a great way to save money, but be careful to inspect the car to be sure there are no hidden problems since they are typically sold "as is". Some dealers specialize in repossessed cars and you can also find them at a local auction.

The matter is the repo, not your employment. If your car is taken they will auction it off for what they can get and you will be held legally responsible for the balance. Regardless of the amount. Self employed or not. Yes, it is much harder for them to collect from you if you are self employed.

Many banks will have a list of repossessed vehicles at their branch offices. They may also have a list of these vehicles on their website. Some banks auction off cars that are repossessed and they wind up at used car lots.

Yes, they also have to send you official letter from auction at the price they sold it to deduct from the amount you own to the bank.

In Canada the answer is yes if it is repossessed by a bank (or credit institution). Any car that is re-possessed by a bank or credit company has to be put up for auction. You can always get your vehicle back if you pay whatever arrears you owe the bank as well as the the fees that the bank had to pay to the repo company before it is sent to the auction house. However, you do need to act quickly. I have never heard of anyone getting their vehicle back once it is up for auction (and in Canada the auction companies used by banks are only open to car dealers).

The bank will contract out with a towing company/recovery company and will tow the vehicle to an auction yard. The vehicle will usually be sold at a private auto auction where there are auto dealers there that purchase repossessed vehicles. The person who pays the most, wins the vehicle. Within 30 days after the auction, you will receive a letter from the bank that will tell you how much the vehicle sold for and how much the deficiency balance remains. Then the collection activity begins. They will constantly call you and ask when they will get their money. Sometimes they will work out a monthly payment with you, and sometimes they won't. If you don' t have the several thousand dollars laying around, then usually you will have no other choice but to file bankruptcy. They could sue you and get a judgment against you. Then they could garnish your wages, take your checking account, put a lien on your house, etc.

If you did not list it in your BK, you will be responsible for any outstanding balance that is not recouped in the auction. Yes. Secured property is not dischargeable in any bankruptcy filing. ------------------------------ If you included it in the bankruptcy, but just didn't reaffirm it, you won't be responsible for any balance.
