It can show at any time. A repossession is compleated as soon as the car is picked up so it does not matter what happens after the repossession it still did happen.

I only know about the state of Massachusetts. And yes in our state they have one hour to report the repossession to the police department in the town of which the car was taken.

Any repossession will negatively impact your credit. Organizations using the credit report do not differentiate between voluntary and non-voluntary. Rather, the organizations see that you were not responsible with credit and what you purchasd needed to be taken away. Generically, a repossession is considered the same as a chargeoff or writeoff, so the impact on the credit score may be anywhere from 50 to 200 points, depending on one's personal credit situation.

* The question is a little vague, however here's what I can say: IF, and it should have been, the repossession was first put on his credit report 7years ago then no. Any negative credit - excluding bankrupcy - by law must be taken off your credit report after 7years of its last active date (this is either when it was put on, or when you last paid it).

Get StartedIf you have been denied credit or if other adverse actions regarding your credit have been taken based on your credit report, you may want to obtain a copy of your credit report and verify the information contained in it.The purpose of the Request for a Credit Report letter is to assist you in obtaining a copy of your credit report, particularly if you have been denied credit, employment or insurance within the last 60 days. The credit report tells how you have managed credit in the past and companies examine your credit report before deciding whether to give you new credit. You can request a copy of your credit report by sending a letter to a credit reporting bureau.When you receive your credit report you should carefully review it. You have the right to respond to a negative entry on your report, to have errors corrected, or to have your response made part of your credit report.
