The proper and best way is to talk with the co-signor FIRST. A repo will affect their credit as much as yours. Talk to them about selling the car yourself. You should get much more for it than the CU will so it will cut your losses somewhat. This will have to be done in agreement with the credit union. Talking to the co-signor AND the CU will make things a lot easier for all involved.

If you have taken the steps above and still find that you have to surrender the vehicle, contact the credit union and make arrangements to surrender the vehicle at a credit union branch. By doing this, you would be able to get written receipt for the vehicle returned to the credit union. This could prevent you charged for "repossession fees".

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.

If you bought two cars in your name one for your brother and his was repossessed how will it affect your credit?

It will be just like if your car was repoed. Repo on your CR,ect. The lender will collect any balance due after its sold from YOU. It's a repo on your credit, probably yours alone. This is referred to (buy lenders) as a straw purchase, if your brother's not a cosigner. People do this to get loans for friends and family who can't pass credit.


If you bought a car in Virginia and can no longer afford it can you do a voluntary repo and not have your wages garnished?

A repo is a repo, voluntary or not. Do not do a voluntary repo or any other repo. Terrible idea!!! Call the lender and work something out. See if you can find someone to take over the payments or possible sell the car to another part and pay off the loan. If you are upside down on the loan, then sell the car and borrow the balance to pay it off. Having your car reposed is a very bad idea. Your credit will be ruined for 7 years. You will also have the pay the difference in what the lender sells your car for and the balance on the note, plus repo fees. Do whatever it takes to prevent this from happening. I can assure you the lender does not want to repo your car. Call them!!!!


If you voluntarily offer your car for repo in Colorado How much of the remaining debt can you be liable for?

The difference in what the car sells for and the balance on the loan, plus repo, and administrative costs. Very, very, bad idea to allow this to happen. Sit down with the lender and work something out. They do not want to repo your car. Voluntary repossession hurts your credit just as much as them initiating the repo. Your credit will suffer for 7 years. Do not allow this to happen, if at all possible,


If your car was repossessed but redeemed by the cosigner can the bank report a repossession on your credit but not on the cosigner's?

VERY possible. reporting repos is up to the LENDER(of course, they usually do). It was very much repoed from you sooo. Nothing you can do about the co-signor having or not having a repo on their credit.


In Georgia should you do a voluntary repossession or just repossession?

The second to last sentence should read - Never will a voluntary repossession cost you MORE than a forced repossession. A repo is a repo. Voluntary Repos will, in most cases, save you money due to the cut in fees associated with the repossession. In some cases these fees will not be any less and the cost of a voluntary repo and the cost of a forced repo are the same. Never will a voluntary repossession cost you less than a forced repossession. Either way, voluntary repossession is the decision I would make, due to the possibility of a lesser cost.
