The length of time that a car payment can be late without being repossessed will depend on the bank or car dealers agreements. Payments made after a month may be in jeopardy of being repossessed.

This will depend on the lender and your past payment history. Some will start a lot sooner than others. In my area they start moving typically after a 60 day late. Almost all of them are started by 90 days late.

When you are late on your payment for a credit card, car loan, mortgage, etc... these "creditors" can report this late payment to the credit bureau that they have a relationship with (either Trans Union, Experian, or Equifax).These credit bureaus in turn stick it on your credit report which negatively affects your credit score.There are30 day late payment items,60 day late payment items,and 90 day late payment items.Many people remove these items by disputing them with the credit bureau (the credit bureau then has 30 days to go back to the creditor to verify the late payment). Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

It does not matter how many times do you make a payment. What matters is, a complete payment of minimum amount due is paid before the due date.

A recent late payment of over 30 days may hurt your credit score up to 60 points.

Usually after 90 days. A good rule of thumb is 60 days after the first missed payment.

Save money by making your credit card bill payment as soon as you receive the bill in the mail or online. If you wait a few more days to weeks before making the payment, interest charges accrue daily for most accounts. This may just seem like a small amount, but over time it really can add up to a lot of cash. When you do make your credit card payment, always allow enough time for the payment to reach your creditor prior to the due date. Even when paying online, it will take several days for most payments to be logged as paid on your account. If the payment is received even a day late, late fees can be charged by your creditor. If you send a credit card bill payment by mail, try to allow at least 5 days for travel time for your payment to reach the creditor and to be posted as paid. Many late fees are around $30 to $40 each, and this could even be larger than the payment you were supposed to be making!

It all depends on the state. I work for a storage company and our policy is 41 days late, before we cut the lock. Then roughly 2.5 months before auction. We are in IL for reference.

Answering "How many times can you be late for a car payment before it is reposessed?" by law they can repossess your car when your 1 day late- there is no law against that! However, your best option, would be to contact CAR HELP USA. They stop repossession, get your payments up to date, lower interest rates, lower your monthly auto bill, help with repossession, and so on. They helped me get a car back from repossession in the past! Do something before the problem just gets worse.

fale or FAIL might be too late for you anyway ;)

In some states under some conditions, YES. It depends on how many times you have been late, repoed, in default, the terms of the contract you signed,ect.

In many states it only has to be 30 days late. 7 mos. is more than time req'd in any.

Default 270 days past due for federal loans. For private it varies and you have to read your loan agreement. Delinquency is not paying the full payment amount due, the day it's due.

This is the same with every lender, and a common misquoted answer: Before your credit score will be affected by a late payment, you must be 30 days late on your bill. Yet, there is one more caveat, you need to be working with a creditor that actually reports to the credit bureaus. Many creditors do not report to the credit bureaus and have then, a late payment will have no impact on your credit score. That being said, do not assume that is normal, as most lenders do. Typically, creditors that do not report to the credit bureaus, are small banks, utility companies, cell phone providers, and the likes. One point of caution, if you don't pay your small bank, utility bill, or cell phone bill, even though they do not report the payment history to the credit bureaus, they will send your bill to collections and ultimately, that will hurt your credit. Obviously, the best thing to do is to pay your bills each month.

IF you can pay the outstanding balance before the end of the sue date - you pay no interest. This period is usually 28 days from the date of the purchase.

Oxymoron. If it was "normal" it wouldn,t be late.

A recent late payment can drop your credit score about 60 points.

Technically the day after the due date (the date the payment should have been made) however, most companies understand that financial transactions can be held up in systems i.e. payment due on a Sunday as far as the date is concerned but the bank will not process until Monday. To give the "process" every chance to catch up most companies allow a 30 day time-line. It must be noted that this allowance is NOT mandatory and a creditor can mark you the day after due date.

90, but don't push your luck. If you can't afford your car, your best option is to contact whoever financed it and explain your dilema. They want your money, not your car, so they will attempt to work with you. Ignoring them is alot like car theft. I would say 30-45 days 90 is pushing it.
