As far as I know, they can sell it the same day they repossess, unless there is some provision in your loan contract. But the car actually is theirs. That is what repossession means. They have the title, because when you signed the loan contract, the loan company actually bought and comletely paid in full for the car from the dealer, and then allowed you to drive it while you paid them back in installments. The loan company actually completely owned the car from day one, you never actually owned it. So, when they repossess, they are taking their car back away from you. They can sell it anytime they want. If they are nice, they may give you the opportunity to catch up the payments, and drive it again. All that is completely up to them, providing there wasn't some clause in the loan contract that prevents them from doing that, but I seriously doubt that.Here is an interesting side note. Most loans require you carry full coverage insurance on the vehicle at all times. If you let that insurance drop, they can repossess the car, even if your loan payments are up to date.

Can my car be repossessed while its parked in my yard in Virginia?

Yes, repossessions can (and often do) occur on private property. There are limitations imposed on the recovery agents, and they know how to plan accordingly. IMO, better that car (which is actually the lien holder's, which is why it can be repossessed in the first place) be repossessed while you're at home than while you're out in public somewhere and left stranded.


Could vehicle get repo if co buyer is in bankruptcy?

The short answer is no. As long as you are making the payments the car will not be repossessed. When the co-buyer goes before the bankruptcy judge they can have the car included or excluded from the bankruptcy. If it's included then the car will be "voluntary" repossessed. If it's excluded then everything is "business as usual" for you. The key is to keep your payment current and on time.


how much time can go by before a car can be repo?

How long you can go before your car is repossessed depends on several things. Generally, as soon as you default on your note, your creditor can "repo" your vehicle. The definition of default may depend on your loan contract, but usually just missing one payment can qualify. It is best to communicate with your creditor before you miss a payment to work out other terms, and avoid having your vehicle taken from you.

How long before a vehicle can be repossessed?

This will usually be stated in the contract you sign when financing the vehicle. Some places, especially the "Bad Credit/No Credit" lots will attempt to repossess in as little as one day after payment is due. I don't see any financier letting it go for longer than 4 months with no payment be for they file for repossession.
