Does a repossession remain on your credit report if you get the vehicle back?
It remains for 7 years, from the date of repossession/charge-off, even if you get the vehicle back. However,If you don't pay the loan off, after it was repoed, then the original creditor MAY get a judgment against you, that judgment will stay on your credit report for 10 years. Unless you are able to settle out of court.
It can; however, depend on the lender and the situation. Some might not put a repo on your credit if you redeem the vehicle promptly and stay current from then on. If they have to sell your vehicle at auction, you most definitely will get a repo on your credit. I know of some people who redeemed their car and never had a repo reported, just the lates.
BTW, even if you get a repo on your credit, you have a good chance of disputing it off. You can dispute a lot of things off your reports, even if they are legit. Been there, done that.
How does a vehicle repossession affect your credit if everything else in your credit report is good?
A credit report is a record of all transations on a reported account. In the life of a vehicle loan, many things can happen. Over the typical four to five years, the vehicle may have been repossessed and then redeemed and paid off. In these cases, yes, repossession and settlement can show on the same vehicle, on the same credit report.
Can you remove a repossession off your credit report if your cosigner has a judgment on the repossession?
Will the surviving spouse's credit rating be affected by the repossession of the deceased spouse's car?
This is tricky. There is no actual listing of the repossession on your credit report. There is a notation in relation to the debt owed. For example: say you borrowed the money for your car from ABC Bank. ABC Bank will then show as a credit action on your report. Next to that will be the balance of the debt, potentially the length of the contract, and a month by month code of your payment…
Your credit report will state that the vehicle was returned. It will still show a balance remaining once this vehicle is auctioned off. This is your best option, but it already has done it's damage to your credit report with missed payment. Also, this will affect your credit score monthly for the next two years from the date of last payment.
It doesn't erase anything on your own credit report....just adds to it, why would it change someone elses? It adds that you are a bankrupt as well as having missed payments and had a repossession. A credit report simply reports what happened in the past....what ever you do now does not change it...you live with the history you created.
The effect on your credit will depend on how the lender chooses to report it to the credit bureau. Sometimes a lender will be willing to report it 'paid as agreed' or 'settled' entry on the credit report rather than an actual repossession. If it is reported as an actual repossession or foreclosure it will be on your credit for seven years and negatively effect your rating.
It depends. The report of the repossession itself will remain for seven years from the date it was recovered. The account, with the defaulted and potentially charged off balance will also remain for seven years after the vehicle was sold at auction and the purchase price was applied to the debt. If the lender obtains a jugment against you, then it will remain for ten years from the date the judgment was granted.
Can you negotiate with a lender to remove a repossession on a credit report through a settlement of paying less than owed or will the credit report show settlement of partial payment of debt?
How can you purchase a car if you have a car that was hidden from repossession for eight years for what it is worth in PA?
If this car has never been repossessed after eight years, it has still been charged off as a bad debt and will remain on your credit report. Lenders can follow you for the deficency balance as long as they wish to refile it. If it had been repo'd, usually after seven years it is dropped from your credit report if there was no unpaid balance. You will have a hard time getting another vehicle financed…
I'm not sure what you are asking. If you want to know what to do about a repossession that took place in Indiana then your best option is to negotiate a settlement. Or, if you have had a repossession on your credit report and are not sure if it is older then the statue of limitation then your best bet is check the Date of Last Activity on your most recent credit report.
Bad credit or any negative report will remain in your credit report for seven years. Therefore, if it happens that there is a wrong information that will affect your report negatively, be sure to dispute it immediately. You can also do your own credit card repair in order to eliminate any bad credit that will be reflected in your credit report.
If lender listed car as a repossession within last 24 hours is it too late to avoid having it on credit report if it has not been picked up yet?
First of all, a lender does not report a vehicle as a repossession until they actually have possession of the vehicle. Then immediately via computer the code is entered and authorities notified. The credit reporting company may be a little slow getting the repo on your report however, but any new lender is going to check your report before giving you a new loan. After a vehicle is repo'd you usually have a few days…
A repossession can drastically hurt your credit score. The repossessed account may report late payments (30, 60, 90 days late), a pad due balance, and a charge-off. A repossession can lower your credit score anywhere from 30 to 200 points depending on the other accounts reporting on your credit report.
Is it still considered repossession if you willing give the bank the keys to your property before it goes into foreclosure?
Yes, a voluntary foreclosure (deed in lieu of such) is a foreclosure just as a voluntary repossession of a vehicle is a repossession. All the same penalties/fees, recovery of debt laws apply and the information entered on the debtor's credit report will be as a foreclosure regardless of the circumstances involved.
