What happens in Texas if you voluntarily have your car repossessed and money is still owed after the car has been sold at an auction?

Chris, I dont know the answer to the question YET. I will find out today. Email me latyer on and Ill have it for you. What does the lender "say" they will do???

You voluntarily surrendered your car it was sold at auction then you were notified it was still in your name and found abandoned in Texas do you have any rights to further money from sheriffs auction?

I assume that you owed money on the car, defaulted, and the car was repossessed by the lender. At the time of auction, the title should have been transferred. The title should have been transferred when the car was sold. The auction house didn't handle the paperwork properly and will have a real mess to straighten out. But that does not entitle you to profit from the sale.

Can a lien be placed on a house for voluntary repossession the state of Texas?

There are no legal differences between the borrower voluntarily relinquishing a vehicle or the lender having to initiate repossession action (with perhaps the exception of additional monetary charges). If an outstanding balance remains on the original loan amount after the vehicle is sold at public auction the lender can file suit to gain a judgment against the borrower for the amount still owed. If a judgment is awarded the judgment creditor may execute it according to the laws of the state. This being the case it is possible for a judgment holder to place a lien against real property owned by the judgment debtor.
