They can only LEGALLY repo your car IF you are in DEFAULT of the contract. That could be no payments, no insurance, using the car for an illegal purpose, ect. Is there any requirements in your contract that you may have not met? If you are NOT in default of the contract, call an attorney NOW. Good Luck
Yes they can even though it is on your private propery since you have no longer been making the payments the bank owns it and it is their property and they have the right to retrieve it
Not IF you reaffirmed the loan with the creditor.
Depending on the state of residence, it is possible for a lender to still repossess your car if you get caught up on the payments. Certain states allow a lender to request full payment of an auto loan when borrowers fall behind, even if they have caught up on past due payments.
It shows on your credit report even before they start making payments.
Yes, your truck can be repossessed even if you are using it to earn an income, however, you can tell your creditor that you are earning money with your truck, and that if the creditor does not repossess the truck you will use that income to make payments on your loan. Of course, if you are not making payments, and spending all of your income on other things, then the creditor has no motive to let you keep the truck.
I assume you took over the payments after the other owner missed payments. If you are caught up on all the payments then there would be no reason for them to repossess the vehicle. You need to contact the lender ASAP to make sure everything is fine. Failure to contact the lender may create a bad situation.
No, you dont even need keys to repossess a car in South Carolina
Yes they can repossess everything that you got a loan for.
Only the LENDER can repossess the vehicle. Is this stepson a minor? If so, you have parental authority to tell him he cannot drive the car. Even if he is over 18, if you are the primary on the loan, I'll bet your name is also on the title and if it is you can just take YOUR car.
Depeding on how the vehicle is titled you may have legal rights to the vehicle even if you aren't making the payments. However, in order to just get it titled in your name then you will need their consent if it's currently titled in both of your names. Very simple answer to all these questions. If your name is on the title, you can have the car. If your name is on the loan, you can make the payments. WHAT if BOTH names on tittle, reg and insurance, one is making payments but other is the strong credit that got bike and wants it back
NO. The repair shop has a lien also. Pay the bill.
You cannot skip a year even if you made double payments for the first year, the bank considers those payments extra and hopefully you made sure the payments went to the principle, not the interest.
