Do you have a contract with a "repo clause" in it? Anything about what will happen if the debtor is in DEFAULT? Do you have the means to actually repo a car? truck, tools, location of the car, etc? Does your state require a "right to cure" notice? Lots of variables here.

yes, you are in a legally binging contract if you are both over 18 years of age and are therefore able to repossess the car.

After they repossess the vehicle they will sell it for whatever they can get. You are then responsible for the difference in what they sold the car for and the balance owed on the loan. If you do not pay this amount they will take you to court.

Hey Hun, if you do not make the payments they will come to repossess your car.

No. The lienholder is the only entity with a right to repossess.

Yes, the finance company can repossess the car from the body shop. They would likely wait for the car to be fixed before they repossess the car.

As long as the bank is listed as the lienholder on the title and as long as you owe them money and haven't paid they can repossess the car.

Usually you will get a sale letter from the finance company or bank letting you know where the car will be sold, at what auction, and once it is over they will send you a letter of how much the car sold for and the remainder they will send you a bill for. This is concerning a public auction of your vehicle. If it was sold privately by the dealership or whomever, the only thing to do is call and ask.

Warranties ... a dealer will offer some kind of limited warranty. Cars sold by private parts are always sold "as is".

User Avatar

No, they cannot. But if you borrowed money to buy the car, they can repossess it if you do not square things up. If they take it, they can sell it for you, and you will still owe the difference between what it sold for and what you had left to pay on it.

Yes, you made a financial pbligation by signing the documents for the sale of this car. So, they can legally repossess that vehicle.

The state doesn't repossess your car - private companies do that on behalf of the lienholder. They don't charge you for private property left in your car when they repossess it - that would be illegal. They charge a "storage fee" for the items they remove from your car. Underhanded, yes, but they can legally do it.

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.

No, you dont even need keys to repossess a car in South Carolina

In all 50 states cars that are sold privately are sold "as is." It's up to the buyer to check out the vehicle. The seller is under no obligation to do anything once the transaction is complete.

They won't repossess it for your license being suspended, but they can repossess it when you fail to make payments, regardless of what the current status of your license is.

Any one on the title or that has a contract.

User Avatar

yes and you will have to pay the differince

A dealership can only repossess your car if you do not pay in accordance with the sale agreement. If you did not pay the agreed down payment, the car may be repossessed.

User Avatar

No, and why would they? If the payments are up to date and have been made on time, there would be no reason for the dealer to repossess the vehicle.

User Avatar

You can repossess a car from from any one as long as your down as a lean holder on title. If your name is not on the title as lean holder than you can't take the car.

User Avatar

Yes they can repossess everything that you got a loan for.

They can repossess with any amount owed if unpaid.
