Look at it from the lenders viewpoint. They can repo a car with 1500.00 owed that might sell for 2500.00 from you. OR, they can repo a car from Joe Doe with 35000.00 owed that might sell for 23000.00. Which would you repo first? The one you lose money(Joe Doe) on oe the one you break even on (you)??

Call them as soon as possible and work out a payment plan with them.

It is not YOUR car if you have not fully paid for the car or, have not been making payments. You need to either catch up on the payments or return the vehicle soon.

What happens if you stop paying insurance on a vehicle that you have a loan on?

The loan could be called due in full; and, if not paid, the vehicle could be repossessed. But usually notice will be first provided, requesting proof of reinstatement of insurance coverage. The lender of the funds used to purchase a vehicle asks for a number of terms when offering a loan to a prospective borrower. The purchased vehicle is the collateral, or security, for the loan. Lenders reduce their risk, making the whole auto loan business possible, by reserving the right to take possession and ownership of the vehicle should the borrower default, or stop paying. One of the conditions the lender almost always places on the borrower is the requirement that the borrower insure the vehicle with "comprehensive" insurance at a level that protects the lender's investment in case of vehicle loss or damage. A lien in favor of the lender, recorded on the title, legally protects the lender. When the insurance is written on a vehicle purchased with an auto loan, the terms usually provide that payment upon a vehicle loss goes first to the lender. Thus the lender has and has record of a potential obligation to the lender. So when the policy holder stops paying, the insuror will usually notify the lender that coverage is no longer in effect. The lender will then likely notify the borrower that he/she must immediately reinstate insurance coverage and provide proof thereof. If proof of insurance is not quickly sent, the lender can consider the borrower to be in default of the loan terms, even though loan payments are continued. Depending on the specific terms of the loan agreement, the lender can call in the loan, requiring immediate and full payment--payment of the entire outstanding principal. Repossession could follow a refusal to pay.

When you buy a new car does the dealership have to turn in that information to your insurance company?

No, but unless you are paying cash for the vehicle the lender is going to want insurance coverage on the vehicle until it is paid for in case something happens to it. Therefore, the lender is going to want a policy number insuring their vehicle is covered.

If you skip any payments, you run the risk of incurring additional interest and payment penalties. When in doubt, contact your old and new lenders to confirm the payment switchover.

What is Missouri Law for paying off repossessed cars?

How does the mortgage balance get paid when you get a reverse mortgage?

Senior homeowners in US who have a lot of equity in their homes can qualify for these loans. Rather than making monthly mortgage payments to the lender, the homeowners can use the equity in their home to receive monthly payments from the lender. The borrower does not have the responsibility of paying off the loan till the time he lives in his home or expires.

Why are monthly payments usually higher when you buy a vehicle than when you lease a vehicle?

because when you buy it, it's yours. when you lease it, you give it back to the leasee. In the latter case you are just paying for the opportunity to use the vehicle.

Can you get a reposession back after filing chapter 13?

No, once a vehicle is repossessed it is no longer your vehicle. The only way to get it back is to make some sort of arrangement with the financier for you to keep the vehicle. This is usually paying off the missed payments, or even paying off the full balance. What you have to do to get it back is dictated by the financier.

How do you get a repossessed vehicle back if the lender does not want to give it to you?

First of all you call the repo company. After that keep trying to call the bank. As long as they don't sell the car you can still get it back by paying the reinstatement amount. * A repossession agent/agency is contracted by the lender, they have no authority to release a vehicle unless the lender orders them to. The lender has no legal obligation to reaffirm the vehicle loan or make any other financial arrangements for the person to recover the vehicle unless state laws allow a time limit for redemption or other applicable remedies.
