The primary borrower is responsible for this debt, but if they do not make arrangements to pay the remaining balance of this debt (once its auctioned off) then you will be fully responsible for the remaining balance.

The lender will sell the vehicle and you are responsible for the deficency. They will sue you for the balance left on the loan after the sale of the vehicle. The court will order you to pay and they can garnishee your wages.

Yes, a voluntary repossession does not mean the buyer is not responsible for any of the remaining loan debt according to the original contract terms or for any additional fees.

Usually when your vehicle is repossessed it is auctioned off and the proceeds are applied to the balance of the loan after any commissions, fees or other charges are deducted. You are then responsible for the remaining balance.

As far as I know, in this state if it's repo'd it's sold at auction then your responsible for any balance left remaining between what's owed and what it brought at auction. But that's here and could be different by state. Yes you can, If the car is taken from you, you can be held legally responsible. They will take and sell the car at auction to the highest bidder. You are then responsible for all costs inccured from the sale. The balance remaining.

Typically, no, there may be some exceptions based on co-signers and benefiting from the estate.

No. The balance is an unsecured debt and is discharged. Sometimes people do not do the paperwork correctly, which can cause problems.

The company physically takes possession of the car. They sell the car, and apply the sale price to the outstanding loan. You are then responsible for the remaining balance.

If you don't pay the balance of the loan after repossession, the lender can take you to court for the remaining balance or they can charge it off. Neither is a good thing, so it is best to pay the remaining balance as soon as possible. ___________________________________________________ Most vehicles that have been repossessed are sold at auction. When this occurs, you are responsible for any balance that remains less the monies collected from the sale. If a balance remains and you fail to pay it then the creditor or lending agency can sue for the balance due plus legal fees.

Voluntary RepossessionOnce this vehicle has been auctioned off, the remaining balance that is left on this loan will be your responsibility to pay off. You can contact this collection agency once you receive a new statement of this balance. Usually the two options that you have is either make monthly payments or you can negotiate a settlement. Your best bet is to save anywhere from 30-50% of the remaining balance, and settle. Get everything in writing before making a final payment.

then you still owe on it. you (as the debtor) are responsible for any remaining balance. when you don't pay that, you'll end up with a judgement and wage garnishment.

A lien will be filed against it, it'll be sold at auction, and you'll still be responsible for paying any remaining balance due on the car.
