4 years on promissary notes. A judgment occurs when a creditor takes you to court and sues you for money you owe them. They must do this before the statute of limitations has expired for the original debt.

You can be sued by the finance company to recover any money still owed to them after they auction the repossessed mobile home.

Instead of having it forcibly repossessed, you call your finance company and tell them you're voluntarily having it repossessed. They may send a tow service to collect it, or they may ask you to take it to the repossessor. It'll be repossessed, auctioned off, and the amount they get from the auction will be deducted from the amount you owe. The finance company may offer a settlement at that point for an amount less than what you owe on that vehicle - that's up to the finance company.

yes because the finance company knows and if you know it may cause problems

You still have rights to recover the vehicle. The finance company may help you look for it if they're desperate enough to get it back. Even if your car was insured, you would legally have to payback the finance company for the car since you broke a binding finance contract.

no because the storage fee that the finance company charged you was what the repo company charged on the invoice. the finance company had no other reason to charge storage fee's they did not store it

If you are not making the required payments to the finance company that holds the lean on you car it may be repossessed. Proof of income is not required or relevant.

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.

You car can usually only be repossessed if you fail to make the payments to your finance company.

While most creditors will allow you to have your vehicle voluntarily repossessed, some lenders will not accept them. Your best resolution in this case is to contact the finance company and determine why they will not collect the vehicle. Ensure that they are indeed accepting the voluntary repossession. You will still be required to pay the remaining balance unless you are told otherwise.

A car that is actually YOURS cannot be repossessed, as it's paid off. If you have a vehicle being repossessed, they're able to do this because it's actually the finance company which owns that vehicle and possesses their title. A recovery agent can, on behalf of the lienholder, go onto private property in order to recover the lienholder's property - with limitations. They cannot cross a locked gate, and they cannot enter a locked building.

A Bad Debt Collection letter is written by the collection or finance company that wishes to receive an outstanding amount from its clients. This letter requests the client to settle the amount quickly. There are a few stages of bad debt collection letter which serve as reminders until harsher actions are taken by the finance company.

Surrendering a vehicle, in a financial sense, means that it is being repossessed and it is being given back to the finance company. The company will usually send someone to collect the vehicle.

It depends if the loans are 'cross-collateralized". READ your contracts.

User Avatar

No, what will happen is this: the finance company will pay off the mechanics lien (usually) and tack that on your loan balance, it would be considered a repo fee.

User Avatar

It depends on what you mean. Do you mean from someone (a third party) who purchased your car from the finance company after the finance company repossessed it from you? If so, there's not really too much you can do other than find the person and make them and offer.

Susan, what state are you in?? Who was the lender?? Laws vary by state. Email if you need too. Thanks

User Avatar

No. They will sell the truck at auction and it will bring what it will bring. You are then responsible for the balance.

Once a car has been repossessed, you as the owner of the vehicle have the obligation to repay any amount still owed on the loan. Once a car is repossessed, it is often sold in a repossessed cars auction by the finance company. The amount which the car was sold for will be deducted from the total loan amount and then the difference will be owed by yourself. So yes you would have to pay the whole vehicle off if it was repossessed.

User Avatar

Possibly yes. They can resale your repossessed car dirt cheap and sue you for the difference in what you owed and what they got for it. Then they can sue you to collect that difference. If they win the suit they can have the sheriff pick up anything you own to sell at public auction to help pay that money they supposedly "lost". It's possible but not real likely. It depends on the mob that runs the finance Company

Have the car voluntarily repossessed. Using this option means that you voluntarily return the car to the finance loan company if you are too far behind on your payments and can't recover. If you decide to return the car, the finance company may pick up the vehicle or it may require that you return the car to its location.
