You are responsible for the remaining balance of what the vehicle sells for and what you owed when it was repo'd.

Once the vehicle is auctioned off and sold there is usually a remaining balance left to pay. You will start receiving collection notices about the remaining balance. This is when you will want to prepare yourself to negotiate a settlement.

The car will be sold at auction. Whatever it sells for at auction will be deducted from the balance remaining. The credit company may initially offer to accept a reduced amount on the balance, but, if you're unable to pay that, they will turn it over to collections for the full amount of the balance remaining.

Yes. Even after the vehicle is sold, you'll still owe them the remaining balance of what you borrowed, and they'll continue to call.

If you don't pay the balance of the loan after repossession, the lender can take you to court for the remaining balance or they can charge it off. Neither is a good thing, so it is best to pay the remaining balance as soon as possible. ___________________________________________________ Most vehicles that have been repossessed are sold at auction. When this occurs, you are responsible for any balance that remains less the monies collected from the sale. If a balance remains and you fail to pay it then the creditor or lending agency can sue for the balance due plus legal fees.

Generally, if the car was sold for less than the amount owed on the loan the lender may demand that you pay the remaining balance owed.

The car goes to auction, then you owe the remaining balance of you loan + repossession and storage fees minus what the car was sold for at auction.

IF the lender obtained a judgment for the balance due, YES.

Yes. If you take out a car loan, fail to make payments, and the car is repossessed, you will have to pay the difference between the price the lender received at auction and the balance remaining on your loan.Since repossessed cars are usually sold at wholesale auctions, the difference can be thousands of dollars.

YES, read the contract you signed. How much you owe is partly due to how little you paid down and how much older the car is now.

yes you do so the bank or dealer wont report it to creditors. When a vehicle is repossessed it must be legally sold for the fair market value, or as near as possible to that price. The amount obtained by the sale is applied to the remaining balance of the loan. The borrower is responsible for any deficit amount plus applicable fees. A repossession is almost always entered on a credit report.

When a vehicle is repossessed it is sold at a public auction for the fair market value (or as close to such as is possible). The borrower/debtor is responsible for any deficit in the amount between what the vehicle is sold for and the remaining balance of the loan contract plus additional fees such as cost of the repossession action. So, in that context, the person is responsible for the "full price" of the vehicle.

When a vehicle is repossessed, it will eventually be sold at auction. Occassionally, the amount received from the sale is greater than the balance owed. On these occassions, the excess is sent to the debtor.

I believe that once the car is sold at an auction or other means, you are suppose to be provided with paperwork showing you the amount it sold for and any remaining balance. If there is a remaing balance, you will probably be ask to pay it.

Randy, IF it sells for more than the unpaid balance, you should receive the excess.

If i have a vehicle repossessed in the state of texas, is there anything that requires me to pay off balance after vehicle is sold at auction?

Stay current on your payments next time. Once you violate the terms of the contract, the vehicle is theirs and they can dispose of it as they please.

its where your home was foreclosed on and whatever it sold for was less then what you owed you could have to pay the remaining balance

The lender will pursue collections for any unpaid balance for seven years from the date the car was sold after being repossessed. If the balance is large, they may pursue legal judgment. Obtaining this, they will have ten years from the date of judgment or last payment.

The vehicle will be sold at auction, the proceeds will be applied to the loan and to the repo fees, then you will still be responsible for any remaining amount owed to the loan.

Yes. When a vehicle is repossessed, the lienholder has to try reclaiming what they can of the loan that was made for the vehicle. A repossessed vehicle typically gets sold at wholesale auctions, and the amount paid for it is typically substantially lower amount than what's owed on the lien. You as the lessee are still liable for the remaining balance owed on the vehicle, plus the fees for repossession, storage of the vehicle, auction fees, etc.

When your car is repo'd and it is auctioned off you are to pay only the balance of what you owe on the loan. So if you owed 10,000 and is sold for 8,000 you pay the balance of the loan whic is 2,000. If you have collections on your credit report call and have it investigated this way they cant keep renewing it for 7 years.

NO. It can be sold any way the bank wants it to be sold
