If i have a vehicle repossessed in the state of texas, is there anything that requires me to pay off balance after vehicle is sold at auction?
When a vehicle is repossessed, it is usually put up for auction. If the monies recovered from the auction is not enough to cover the outstanding balance on the loan, the person the vehicle was repossessed from is expected to pay the difference. It's a bummer, but that's how it goes.
When a vehicle is repossessed, it will eventually be sold at auction. Occassionally, the amount received from the sale is greater than the balance owed. On these occassions, the excess is sent to the debtor.
Usually, they do not have to tell you what they are about to do to your vehicle. But, the procedure is is that they will sell your vehicle in an auction.
likely NOT. TFC uses a wholesale auction and you wont get in. If you want to redeem your vehicle just pay it off.
Either you'll get your payments current plus repossession fees, or your vehicle will be auctioned off, and you'll still be liable for the remaining balance after the auction.
Yes.. anywhere. When a vehicle gets repossessed (voluntarily or involuntarily) and it isn't reclaimed, the vehicle gets auctioned... the person who took the loan on the vehicle is still responsible for the difference between what was received for the vehicle at auction and what is owed on the balance of the vehicle (plus repossession, storage, and auction fees).
Yes. What happens is that they auction the vehicle. They can auction a vehicle 10 days after they repossess it, not before. They take that money, apply it to the loan. Whatever balance is left is what you are responsible for. One thing you can question, is what the vehicle is auctioned for. They have to make every reasonable effort to sell it for book, they just can't sell it for $10 if it is a $10K vehicle, if you know what I mean. There are guidelines that they have to adhere to.
The vehicle will be sold. That amount will be applied to your balance. You will be responsible for the remainder owed along with any fees associated with the legal aspects etc
not much, basically your hands are tied. when you pruchased the vehicle and signed a contract it was probably stated in there that if the vehicle is repossessed it will be sold at auction and the balance/credit of the debt is the responsibility of the purchaser
When a vehicle is repossessed it is sold at a public auction for the fair market value (or as close to such as is possible). The borrower/debtor is responsible for any deficit in the amount between what the vehicle is sold for and the remaining balance of the loan contract plus additional fees such as cost of the repossession action. So, in that context, the person is responsible for the "full price" of the vehicle.
Whatever the sale of the auction is the bank will take it and pay the cost for the auction and whatever the balance is will be applied to what is owed. So if your car sells for $9 thousand, and the cost is $1k to sell $8k is applied to the balance of the car. If you owe $12k minus $8k you will owe $4k.
