About the same as any repo. The impact is that you couldn't complete the agreement for whatever reason.
Same as a repo. A repo is a repo is a repo.
That is correct, there is no difference in voluntary and involuntary. Stays on your credit report for 7 years. Don't let it happen to you.
It is not that bad ....in fact you can probably get another car just at a higherinterest rate... besides someone has to keep wonk and clay in business.
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.
A repossession hurts your credit score whether it is voluntary or not. The creditor will report late payments, a charge off status, and a balance if one is owed. A repossession may hurt your credit score anywhere from 60 to 120 points.
A repossession will significantly lower your credit score, regardless of the balance. It will take around 7 years before the repossession is removed from the credit report.
Same as a regular repo. The creditor may still put the repossession on your credit report and it would stay there for up to seven years. Notice the word "may", because it is at the creditor's discretion...
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.
a lot and it will hurt your credit for 7 years
no not until it drops from your credit file
OF Course it does! IF you just got bankrupt it does hurt your credit score really badly!
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.
== == http://www.NationalScoreIndex.com. Overall, the study found that: * The average Experian PLUS(SM) Score for consumers with no late auto payments is 689 versus 596 for consumers with at least one late auto payment. When a payment is late by 90 or more days, the average score dropped to 574. * 1.5 percent of consumers who have an auto have a repossession noted on their credit file. The average credit score for those with a repossession dropped even further to 566. The states with the highest repossession rate are Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, South Carolina and Nevada.
Generally, no, your credit score will not be reduced if a credit card that you own is not being used. You don't, however, want to cancel the card - cancelling a credit card (whether voluntary or forced by the issuer) does reduce your credit score.
A repossession will remain on your credit for seven years, which will decrease your credit score. You should work out a payment arrangement with the creditor to avoid it.
