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.

What are the consequences of a voluntary repossession of a mobile home?

Under US law as I understand it, any repossession is detrimental to your credit record. Both a voluntary repossession or a standard repossession have the same effect on your credit rating. Both will appear as repossessions, and either will result in a negative mark on your credit history. Any repossession will appear on a credit report for 7.5 years from the date of first delinquency. You will likely see your credit score drop significantly, as having a repossession in your credit history marks you as a credit risk. The only advantage that I see in doing a 'voluntary' repossession is that it may cost you less in legal fees. In general, I would encourage you to work with the lender to find ways of keeping your home and coming to some kind of agreement on reduced monthly payments, or even weekly payments which will involve a lower interest rate. Good luck with it.
