How do you open an equity line?

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.

What happens to your credit with a voluntary repossession?

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.

The effect on your credit will depend on how the lender chooses to report it to the credit bureau.

If it is reported as an actual repossession or foreclosure it will be on your credit for seven years and negatively effect your rating.

If you bought a car in Virginia and can no longer afford it can you do a voluntary repo and not have your wages garnished?

A repo is a repo, voluntary or not. Do not do a voluntary repo or any other repo. Terrible idea!!! Call the lender and work something out. See if you can find someone to take over the payments or possible sell the car to another part and pay off the loan. If you are upside down on the loan, then sell the car and borrow the balance to pay it off. Having your car reposed is a very bad idea. Your credit will be ruined for 7 years. You will also have the pay the difference in what the lender sells your car for and the balance on the note, plus repo fees. Do whatever it takes to prevent this from happening. I can assure you the lender does not want to repo your car. Call them!!!!

If have a voluntary repossession in the State of California are you still liable to pay off the loan?

In California, yes. In some states, no (i.e., Texas). There is no legal difference for deficiency balance between voluntary and involuntary repossession (it should cost less to just pick your car up than it does to have an involuntary repo, which would save you some money if you are going to pay off the deficiency balance). However, you might be able to come to an agreement with the lender to make reduced payments and keep your account current and your credit good. This is all assuming the lender is not able to sell your car for as much as you owe them. If they sell it for more (including costs of repossession and sale) then by law they must refund the difference to you. If you think about what that would cause IF it was true, you would knnow the answer. Did you read your contract??? If you were a LENDER, would you loan money in a state that didnt allow you to collect the balance owed if the debtor did a Voluntary repo???? That would only serve to drive up the costs to those debtors would DIDNT do a voluntary repo. ??YES.

Voluntary foreclosure how do i do this and does it have to be excepted?

Voluntary forclosure is when you call your lender and tell them you are voluntarily forclosing. This way the lender knows to sell the home before the bank "forcloses". I heard when the bank sells the home for a lower amount than the payoff, they can come after you to pay back the difference. By volunteering, you have open communication with the lender where the house can be put on the market asap rather than after the fact. You are off the hook but its stamped on your credit for a very long time.
