How can you remove a voluntary repossession from your credit and should you consider bankruptcy to fix your credit?
B/K will NOT fix credit unless you consider NO credit for 7 yres. "fixed". It will get it off your record.
How will a voluntary repossession affect your purchasing a car within a year from the voluntary repossession?
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.
Most likely. They are two separate issues. Answer Yes. It will show that you no longer owe the debt, as well. Answer It MAY show up, however, if the debt for the vehicle was discharged in bankruptcy, it cannot be reported. There can be no negative reporting on a discharged debt - not even for a voluntary repo. If the vehicle was surrendered as part of the bankruptcy, the loan should show as a ZERO…
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…
What happens to a cosigner of a car loan when the primary loan holder files bankruptcy and the loan is discharged and they do a voluntary repossession?
I have a car for 2 yrs now and is not fully paid but i want to return it will returning it affect my credit?
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.
How does a vehicle repossession affect your credit if everything else in your credit report is good?
If you make voluntary payments on a car loan that was discharged in a bankruptcy can they still report it as a repossession on your credit report even though the debt is not legally owed?
My guess is that they probably can still list a repo on your credit report. Normally you get a double-hit on your credit report when you surrender property in bankruptcy: you get hit with the bankruptcy (which knocks your credit score down by 75 to 150 points) and you get hit with a repo/foreclosure for the surrendered property. Just because a debt is discharged in bankruptcy doesn't mean that it won't be listed on your…
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.
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…
That is called voluntary repossession. You will be required to pay the difference in what the lender sells the vehicle for and the balance on the note after that amount is applied to the loan. You did avoid repossession fees by voluntarily turning the car in. Your credit will also show this repossession for 7 years.
For any personal credit related concerns I recomment a website that I know has many very good answers to even the toughest questions. It is an 'ask' site directly on Experian's website which is hosted by Maxine Sweet, the V.P. of Public Affairs for Experian. You can get to the site from the following link: http://www.experian.com/ask_max/index.html A repossession is the term applied to action taken on a defaulted vehicle loan. The vehicle, which is the…
Can you remove a repossession off your credit report if your cosigner has a judgment on the repossession?
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.
Yes. This is called a "voluntary repossession". You're still responsible for the entire amount of the loan, so if the car is worth less than the remaining loan amount, then you'll have to make up the difference. Also, it's still a repossession, even though it was voluntary, and will appear on your credit. If you're not late on the payments yet you may do better to sell the vehicle yourself and use the proceeds to…
What does the voluntary dismissal of a chapter 13 bankruptcy mean for the debtor and creditors and the debtor's credit report?
Keri, I suggest you think long and hard before you let it go back. The results are not nice at all on your credit rating. Read your contract where it mentions "deficency balance". Chances are that you will be responsible for any amount owed after the car is sold. If the payments are toooo high, ask the lender if they will lower the interst rate. If you have lost income but expect to regain it…

Can an apartment complex refuse to rent an apartment to you if you have filed for bankruptcy in the state of Florida?
If you have a repossesion on your credit report when you file for bankruptcy will that be removed from your credit report?
No. The repossession will be its own listing. If is was including in the bankruptcy, it will be listed as 'included in bankruptcy' but it will still be listed as its own listing. UPDATE: Actually, you can force Equifax, Experian and TransUnion to remove a Bankruptcy from your credit report and you can do it legally using a federal law that is in place. Credit Bureaus MUST have "verifiable proof" of the "bankruptcy" in their…
What is the difference between voluntary repossession and regular repossession and the pros and cons with it?
Neither are good. Call the lender and work something out. a repo is a repo by any standard ,they will sell the unit and go after you for the deficiency no matter what.it will be on your credit as a repo. You will not have to pay the towing and fees associated with the repo. That is the only difference.
