== Repossession== If they are accepting payments - that will reflect negatively on them if they try to take you to court on a deficiency balance, however they have the right to demand full payment of the loan at any time and take the car if you don't pay. Also - if you are just sending in partial payments that doesn't mean they are accepting them. They need to agree to the partial payments and how long it will go on. You can't stop them from repo by sending in some money every month. More input from FAQ Farmers: * Yes, I have found out that if you are in default (even if you are attempting to make payments), the bank at any time, can repo your vehicle...unless otherwise stated in your contract.

Can a bank repossess a car if they continue to take payments?

YESIFyou are not up to date, if you are behind on your payments they can repossess at anytime. In most loans, there's a statement about late and/or partial payments that basically says the bank can take them but isn't obligated to do so and that taking one late or partial payment does not mean that they have to continue to do so.So, if you owe $200 a month, and pay $100, the bank can accept that and still repossess the car. They do have to credit the $100 towards the loan.Also, banks are usually allowed to repossess for habitually late payments. Most of the time a bank will consider this to be more hassle than it's worth as long as you're eventually catching up, but if you're chronically making payments several weeks late, they might at some point decide "this guy is a flake, we should get out of this deal while we still stand some chance of recovering our money."

Who is the creditor? - Most creditors will gladly continue to accept payments on the vehicle and not repossess it. however some creditors such as Ford Motor company will repossess regardless of whether or not you are current.

Do you still owe the lender if the court rejected your reaffirmation agreement?

Yes. The reaffirmation agreement allows you to continue to make payments on a secured loan and retain the secured property. The rejection of the agreement simply means the creditor can apply for relief from stay and repossess or foreclose on the property. If you have been making post-filing payments, the creditor may not bother and, in some states, under state law cannot proceed against the property.

In a divorce what rights does one party have to repossess a vehicle?

Here are some reasons: If you are the one that has made all the payments and it's in your name then your mate has no right to it. If there are two vehicles during the time of the divorce you are each entitled to one of those vehicles. If you haven't been making payments on a vehicle and it's a joint loan your mate can take the car. If you and your mate owe debts, then the debts must be paid off and any banking instiution can repossess your house to your vehicles and other things of value to make up for that loan. This also includes the IRS!
