If your car is repossessed for being three payments behind can the bank refuse to give the vehicle back if you pay the repo fee and catch up your payments?

Read the contract again. What part of it are you in DEFAULT on? There is a clause in most contracts that says the lender can accelerate the balance due for a number of reasons.

Yes, furniture can be repossessed if you start making payments again after 6 months, especially if the missed payments are not caught up. The creditor can refuse the payment if court proceedings are already in progress.

READ your contract. It should deal with that issue. If you meet the conditions set forth by the contract, YES, they can refuse.

Once the loan is in default the bank has the right to refuse payment and repossess the vehicle.

The title is only released when the debt or loan is paid in full. If you want the lender to pick up the car, I'm guessing that you can't or don't want to make the payments. The lender can refuse to pick up the car, but, if the debt remains unpaid, they will probably have the car repossessed which will negatively affect your credit rating.

I think that you need to pay what you owe. You should call them and see what their policy is. I wish you luck:)

Up until the day they sell the car. As long as you pay the repossession fees and make up all back payments plus any administrative charges. That is if the lender agrees which they do not have to do. You broke the contract when you failed to make the payments on time so they can refuse the payments and sell the car.

It depends on the reasons the car was repossessed and what the local laws are. If the car is being held as evidence or to be processed for evidence, it can be held as long as it is needed.

No. As long as you can make the payments for all the fees and hospital charges, they cannot refuse treatment.

Yes. If you are in default the bank can refuse anything short of your full past due balance.

The local sheriff will have you moved bodily if necessary. If it comes to that you may be arrested.

If it is to be repossessed legally then you are guilty of an offence. The offence and the penalty would depend on the circumstances and the country in which you reside.

You can report it as stolen, but the police will more than likely not take it very seriously. It would be better to have a repossession agency or individual deal with it. Issues like this can escalate and become violent.

You should find the sales receipt. It might state on there what will happen. Regardless, payments need to be made and you should tell the loaner that she is deceased. You might want to contact a lawyer to make sure things go the way they should. * If the vehicle was not part of the inheritance the lender should have been contacted by the executor or administrator of the deceased's estate. If the vehicle was part of an inheritance then the beneficiary may contact the lender to arrange refinancing or refuse the "gift" and allow the vehicle to be recovered by the lender. In either case, a family member cannot simply keep the vehicle and continue to make payments without notifying the lender.

Yes, but only if the employee used his own vehicle voluntarily and a company vehicle was available.

Yes they can and yes they do. Often after the sale of a repossessed vehicle, there remains a balance due. Many debtors refuse to pay this believing the sale of the vehicle should be fair compensation for the debt. However, from the moment the contract is signed, the vehicle becomes simply a pawn in the game, a means to an end. That end is the loan contract. If the borrower defaults on the loan to the point that repossession becomes an option, the vehicle is only considered a means of recovering some of the balance owed. In rare cases, more than what is owed is obtained in the sale of a repossessed vehicle, and the debtor is due a refund of the difference. There are few debtors who would decline such. Why should the lender do so the other way?

i am two months behind on my mortgage. can the lender refuse to take one payment?

User Avatar

READ your contract. It likely has "right to accelerate balance due" clause. Just as you have the right to pay the loan off early, the lender retains the right to call it due early. This depends on several factors, your payment history,if you are in default, ect. So, YES, they could refuse.

They cannot issue a warrant to have you arrested for non-payment of your car loan. Worst case: They have sent a repossession agent to retrieve the vehicle but you have hidden it and he cannot find it. If you avoid repossession for long enough and refuse to cooperate, the lender may get a court order (writ of replevna) demanding that you surrender the vehicle. This order will be delivered by the county sherrif, not the repo man. At this point, you will either allow them to take the car or be arrested for contempt of court. It is about 30-45 days

Payments??YES. PAYOFF???NO My husband lost his job and had to take a different job making less money so our payments were late and the several were not made at all. At the time of the repossession I was in the process of trying to get a personal loan from a family member to just pay off what we owed. The vehicle was reposessed before I could get the money. The day after they took it, I called and asked what it was going to take to get my vehicle back. The woman was extremely nasty to me and informed me that with our payment history she was not going to give it back to me. She did not offer me a pay off amount or even let me get a word in. She had me in tears before she hung up on me. I could not afford an attorney so we just did nothing. The van has now been sold at auction. It sold for $1200 at auction. Now we are getting letters demanding the amount we owed plus $200 more even though they sold the van for $1200. I know they can legally expect us to pay for the amount of the outstanding debt, but I don't understand how they can refuse to let me pay before they auction it, then come up with a higher amount we owe than what was left on the loan AFTER they sell it. We couldn't afford to make the payments before and now I have used the personal loan from the family member to purchase a different vehicle. We have no money to pay for a vehicle we no longer have.......plus $200 more than we owed to pay it off. Is there nothing I can do?
