If your grandmother bought you a car and now the car note is behind and it is being repoed can you go to jail if it is registered in your name?

You won't go to jail. If the car is registered in your name, legally, it is your car. Your credit will be ruined for 7 years if you allow it to be repossessed. You will also pay the difference in what the lender sells the car for and the balance on the note, plus repo fees. I suggest you contact the lender and make some sort of arrangements. Don't let the car be repossessed. I'm guessing Grandma made the down payment and co-signed the loan and Junior promised he would make the payments. If so, both of their credit scores go down the drain. If only Grandma signed the note (unlikely if Junior's name is on the title) it will only show on her credit report.

It will not be registered in your name. They sold it and will register it in the new owners name.

So call The Police immediately. And also call your dealership cause you might of gotten it repoed. Behind on your payments?

No As far as finance company is concerned the car came with wheels, it has wheels on it when repoed. Done deal.

No, this would be considered a lien loss. Typically this occurs when a vehicle is traded in, previously repoed and resold, or sold outright and the previous lienholder either never perfected the lien, or provided the proper paperwork when reselling it after repossession. If the vehicle is repoed, contact your lender to ensure they did not order it, contact the repo agency who recovered it and report it wrongfully repoed, and demand the name of the lender who ordered it. The vehicle if actually wrongfully repoed must be returned to you undamaged as soon as possible.

A repoed auto is usually sold far below its retail value. If you have a chance to sell it yourself and pay off the loan before it is repoed you will be dollars ahead, even if you lose money on the deal.

Yes, you are still behind in your payments. Don't let this happen. Contact the lender and work something out.

Repossessed no. Confiscated yes.

Then you should pay your bills.

Amanda, if you are behind on the payment, youare "in trouble' with the lender. you are in default and could be repoed by the lender at any time. they just havent pushed the issue YET. Co-signor can only 'repo" IF they are listed as co-owner on the TITLE.

IF your vehicle is collateral for loan in DEFAULT, it CAN be repoed.

User Avatar

there is no reason for it to be on record, if you are a buyer

Then tell the Repossession agents where it is and who has it.

Anything that you might need a bank loan to get.

First, get some sort of proof that it was NOT destroyed before it was repoed, call the lender who had it repoed and askk for repairs to it. If they refuse, call a local attorney.

1)he will take the car you left if that is the car to be repoed. 2)If you are traveling in the car to be repoed he will wait for you to return and repo it after you get back.

User Avatar

CALL the LENDER who had it repoed. they know where it is.

User Avatar

Technically yes - the vehicle can be repossessed if you are 'in default' of your obligations under the contract. So while the usual way to default on the contract is by missing payments, it is possible for you to be in default by another way, outlined in the contract you agreed to.

If you aren't paying for that car's payments then yes. The only reason why your car should be repoed it because the payments aren't being made on it. It doesnt matter if your car is from the 1940's or if you brought the car last month, the car can be repoed if you dont pay the payment for 2 or more months (consult dealership for it's repo rules).

No. Repossession is done when the vehicle was financed and the borrower isn't paying the loan.
