IF they follow the laws of your state, YES. A repo is a repo is a repo. they may also be able(and more likely if you have a job)to garnish your wages. NEGOTIATE with them, they would much rather have money than the car. TRY to sell the car. Good Luck

To open an equity line of credit you need to discuss your needs with a lender. The lender will then obtain your information and run a credit check. If you pass the credit check, the lender will then make sure your property is free and clear of any judgments and/or liens. After the property is found to be free and clear, the lender will allow you to take out an equity line of credit loan against the property.

VERY MUCH affected. You AND Pop will be expected to pay the balance due after the lender sells the truck. Try to sell it yourself.

A voluntary reposession reports on your credit report as a loss. The car company with take the car back and credit a portion of the balance which the owner/leaser still needs to pay on. The creditor will place the "voluntary Reposession" on credit bureau. All in all it will be reported as a charge off debt. If the original owner/leaser doesnt pay the remainder he/she can/will be collected from and could face legal action. A repo is a repo voluntary or not. Ruins your credit for 7 years. What generally happens is that it will be reported on your credit as a repossession. When you go for financing on something else, the repo will pop up and the potential lender will call the lender who reported the repo. When they find out it was a voluntary, it may actually lessen some of the blow of having a repo. But, yes, a repo is a repo.

A lender might not know at the time the credit is pulled but it may show on the title report. Depending on the state, a title report can show any and all bankrupcies and/or judgments against a person. If any money is outstanding from the foreclosure,it may be found inthe judgments.
