How soon can you repossess your auto after a no payment?
I live in New York State. I was able to have my car return to me in 24 hours. Of course I had to pay the missing payments,then the towing and storage charges. Hopes this helps.
My best suggestion is to contact your auto lender, and ask them the procedure for repossesions. Keep in mind that the bank can reposses your vehicle if you are 60 days late on your payments even if you attempt to only make half of your payments. Call them as soon as possible and work out a payment plan with them.
Your contract most likely states that the lender can demand payment in full at anytime. This means they can repossess the vehicle after demanding you pay it off. If you are 5 days late, they could repossess it. There is no legal requirement for the lender to wait any amount of time before taking your vehicle.

Unfortunately, yes they can repossess your car. They have the right to take it at any point that you do not make a full payment on or before the indicated pay day. The only exception is if you have a written agreement that states you have a grace period. Otherwise there is nothing you can do about it except pay in full on time every time.
Absolutely. There are other reasons other than a late payment for a bank to repossess your car. Cancelled insurance or a big drop in your FICO score. If you seem like a credit risk to your bank all they have to do is wait for you to become delinquent once and they have the legal right to default the loan and get the asset back. At that point they can refuse payment and keep the…
