VERY MUCH affected. You AND Pop will be expected to pay the balance due after the lender sells the truck. Try to sell it yourself.
No you cannot remove a repossession off your credit report if your cosigner has a judgement on the repossession.
A repossession is a repossession, no matter if it is voluntary or not. Your credit will be ruined for 7 years.
If this relates to a joint account holder or cosigner, then yes the person's credit rating will be affected by a repossession. Yes, whoever's name the car is in will be affected by the car's repossession. Only if the car is somehow tied to the account. Only a bad payment history on that joint account can affect your credit.
They can still come after the cosigner, and it will still reflect poorly on your cosigner's credit history. You have been absolved of the debt, not your cosigner.
Yes, there is no difference. A repossession is a repossession.
For Experian, a voluntary repossession will remain on your credit report for seven years from the original delinquency date of the debt.
neither looks good on your credit.
Yes, but perhaps not as adversely as an involuntary repossession.
Yes. That is the point of the lender asking for a cosigner. The cosigner will have a repossession showing on their credit as well as the primary lender.
Any repossession will negatively impact your credit. Organizations using the credit report do not differentiate between voluntary and non-voluntary. Rather, the organizations see that you were not responsible with credit and what you purchasd needed to be taken away. Generically, a repossession is considered the same as a chargeoff or writeoff, so the impact on the credit score may be anywhere from 50 to 200 points, depending on one's personal credit situation.
YES, on a CR, a repo is a repo.
What makes you think you can just return it. You can't. You bought it, you own it. Now if you are talking about doing a voluntary repossession, of course it will ruin your credit for 7 years. A repossession is a repossession, voluntary or not.
Oh yes it does. That person put their credit on the line when they signed the contract making me a cosigner.
For all practical purposes, YES.
it's all the same whether you turned it in or they picked it up
Under US law as I understand it, any repossession is detrimental to your credit record. Both a voluntary repossession or a standard repossession have the same effect on your credit rating. Both will appear as repossessions, and either will result in a negative mark on your credit history. Any repossession will appear on a credit report for 7.5 years from the date of first delinquency. You will likely see your credit score drop significantly, as having a repossession in your credit history marks you as a credit risk. The only advantage that I see in doing a 'voluntary' repossession is that it may cost you less in legal fees. In general, I would encourage you to work with the lender to find ways of keeping your home and coming to some kind of agreement on reduced monthly payments, or even weekly payments which will involve a lower interest rate. Good luck with it.
It hurts you credit tremondously. It will stay on your credit report for 7 years, and there is nothing you can do about it. Do not allow your car to be repossed. Voluntary repossession on not any better. Contact the lender and work something out.
The credit of the primary borrower(s) and the cosigner(s) are equally affected (positively or negatively) and both are subject to the credit history check and evaluation.
Yes. It's possible that the financial transaction that the cosigner was involved with (liable for) might also be affected.
The effect on your credit will depend on how the lender chooses to report it to the credit bureau. Sometimes a lender will be willing to report it 'paid as agreed' or 'settled' entry on the credit report rather than an actual repossession. If it is reported as an actual repossession or foreclosure it will be on your credit for seven years and negatively effect your rating.
You can't just "return" a car. You can surrender it to the lienholder. This is called a voluntary repossession, and yes, it will affect your credit ... it's still a repossession, even though it was voluntary.What you could do without negatively affecting your credit is sell it or trade it in.
AnswerIf the surviving spouse was not a joint borrower on the vehicle loan the repossession affect/appear on their credit report.
You need to have him sign over the car to you and pay the note. Regardless, you have to pay the note.
A repossession hurts your credit score whether it is voluntary or not. The creditor will report late payments, a charge off status, and a balance if one is owed. A repossession may hurt your credit score anywhere from 60 to 120 points.
The creditor will seek repayment of the car loan from the cosigner. As long as the cosigner pays, their credit will not be affected. However, if they are unable or unwilling to pay, the debt will be pursued like any other bad debt, and it will affect their credit rating.
