by law in the state of Texas,a repo cannot sell for anymore than what is owed.The finance company has to tell you what the ballance on it is after it sells,add around $600 for legal fees to what was owed before the repossesion and subtract the ballance owed now which gives you what the repo sold for

What are the Texas vehicle repossession laws?

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?


How will you know what you still owe the creditor after a repossession?

The amount you will owe the creditor will be the amount of your auto loan (including repossession fees, interest, and collection charges) minus the amount the vehicle sold for at auction. The creditor will notify you of the amount due in writing after they auction off the vehicle.


Do you have to payoff a car repossession?

Can you be arrested if the auto lender comes to repo the car and you dont have it?

Not at the time the lender seeks repossession of the vehicle, but if it is found that fraud has been committed (vehicle hidden, sold, etc.) them criminal charges could be applicable.


What is your obligation if you take the car back to the bank before they come to get it?

When the car gets back to the bank, its sold and the debtor owes the difference between what it sold for and the outstanding balance on the loan. IF it sells for more than is owed, debtor has to pick up the check for the surplus. There are no differences between a voluntary repossession/relinquishment of vehicle by the borrower and the forced repossession/recovery by the lender, except for some of the repossession costs such as towing. FYI, a bank will not allow you to return the vehicle in the sense that you can "drop it off" somewhere.


If your car is going to be repossessed is it legal for you to sell it before the actual repossession?

Not without permission of the lender. A vehicle cannot be sold without a clear title of ownership. The lender is named on the title of a vehicle as the "lienholder" until the vehicle is paid for or otherwise released by the lienholder.

Is it legal for the buyer to be charged the full price of their repossessed vehicle?

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.


How does the remaining balance in a vehicle repossession case get solved?

Once the vehicle is repoed, if it is not redeemed, the vehicle is sold at auction. This purchase price is applied to the debt. The problem is, the repossession procedure can add much more to the balance owed. So, there is likely to be a remaining balance, and it could be higher than was originally owed on the loan before the vehicle was repoed. In cases where a balance remains, the lender may decide to take legal action and sue the borrower.


Can a lender continue reporting late payment when th vehicle is already possessed and sold?

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.
