It is up to the LENDER to report a repo. Usually they DO report it and it stays on your CR for 7 years.

Can a lender report repossession of a discharged auto?

If they repossessed it as part of the bankruptcy (and you didn't get it back), probably yes. However, the bankruptcy itself is a bigger black mark than the repo, especially since it can stay on your credit report longer (up to 10 years after filing, though some bureaus remove Chapter 13 after 7 years; repos only stay for 7 years).

Does a repossession remain on your credit report if you get the vehicle back?

It remains for 7 years, from the date of repossession/charge-off, even if you get the vehicle back. However,If you don't pay the loan off, after it was repoed, then the original creditor MAY get a judgment against you, that judgment will stay on your credit report for 10 years. Unless you are able to settle out of court. It can; however, depend on the lender and the situation. Some might not put a repo on your credit if you redeem the vehicle promptly and stay current from then on. If they have to sell your vehicle at auction, you most definitely will get a repo on your credit. I know of some people who redeemed their car and never had a repo reported, just the lates. BTW, even if you get a repo on your credit, you have a good chance of disputing it off. You can dispute a lot of things off your reports, even if they are legit. Been there, done that.

If you have two cars in your name but you are considering letting one car go back to the company after you get another one how will this affect your credit?

Do you mean defaulting on the loan and allowing it to be reposessed? If so, it will show up as an auto loan default and repo. That will stay on your credit report for several years. Best to sell it and pay it off.

How does a house repossession effect your credit?

In the UK if your house is repossessed it will stay visible on your credit file for 6 years. It would be very difficult to obtain credit with this on your file. It is possible to obtain another mortgage but this would be from a specific lender and your monthly repayments would be considerably higher. If you have mortgage arrears or in the process of having your property repossessed this can be stopped. If you type in your address bar "stop repossessions" you should be able to find help.

You are currently in a bankruptcy however they repoed your car anyway What can you do?

It depends. If the repo was after you filed, and the lender did not obtain relief from stay to repo, you file a motion to hold the lender and the repo entity in contempt of the automatic stay, and ask for an order that the lender return the vehicle. If the lender did get relief from stay, you cannot do anything. If you are representing yourself, as the saying goes, you have a fool for a client. If you have a lawyer, why aren't you asking him/her?

How long can a repossessed car stay on your credit?

Laws vary by state. Seven years is a general rule of thumb. However, there is the potential for it to be perpetual - the lender can "sell" your debt to another company, who in turn add a fee and interest, and it remains on your credit report. Ten years is the federal upper limit though.

What happens if you cannot pay on your car loan any longer will your credit be bad and for how long what if it is aution what about the upside down amount that is left after being sold do i still pay?

If you can't pay anymore, the lender has the right to repo. The repo will be reflected on your credit report just like everything else. It will stay on their just as long as everything else. If it is auctioned, the lender has the right to charge you and seek judgment on the difference that the car sold for vs. what you owe them. So yes you will be hounded for the difference plus any costs to repo, ship, auction, paperwork, etc.

What happens to your license plates after your car gets repossessed?

License tags are the property of the state which issued them. The repo company should return them to the DMV or motor vehicle bureau. Different rules in different states. In some states they stay with the car and in others they belong to the person they were issued to and in others they are returned to the state.

What does automatic stay under title 11 mean concerning a repossessed car?

I'm assuming you are asking regarding a bankruptcy. An automatic stay is a utility of the court, that legally prevents contact with you from creditors after they have been notified of the bankruptcy proceedings. Once you file, the stay protects you and your proerty for as long as the stay exists. Once the BK is dismissed or discharged, the stay is lifted. While the stay is in effect, the vehicle cannot be involuntarily repossessed.
