a voluntary repossession is where you turn over the vehicle instead of us having to come get it from you. www.aerecoveryandtowing.com
Under US law as I understand it, any repossession is detrimental to your credit record. Both a voluntary repossession or a standard repossession have the same effect on your credit rating. Both will appear as repossessions, and either will result in a negative mark on your credit history. Any repossession will appear on a credit report for 7.5 years from the date of first delinquency. You will likely see your credit score drop significantly, as having a repossession in your credit history marks you as a credit risk. The only advantage that I see in doing a 'voluntary' repossession is that it may cost you less in legal fees. In general, I would encourage you to work with the lender to find ways of keeping your home and coming to some kind of agreement on reduced monthly payments, or even weekly payments which will involve a lower interest rate. Good luck with it.
Anytime a negative item is removed from your credit report, it will raise your credit score unless new collections are added to your report.
A voluntary reposession reports on your credit report as a loss. The car company with take the car back and credit a portion of the balance which the owner/leaser still needs to pay on. The creditor will place the "voluntary Reposession" on credit bureau. All in all it will be reported as a charge off debt. If the original owner/leaser doesnt pay the remainder he/she can/will be collected from and could face legal action. A repo is a repo voluntary or not. Ruins your credit for 7 years. What generally happens is that it will be reported on your credit as a repossession. When you go for financing on something else, the repo will pop up and the potential lender will call the lender who reported the repo. When they find out it was a voluntary, it may actually lessen some of the blow of having a repo. But, yes, a repo is a repo.
Not paying your bills on time. Having high balances that are close or over your line of credit. Having any derogatory (negative) information ie.) car repossession, bankruptcy, written off accounts, unpaid collections, etc.
VERY possible. reporting repos is up to the LENDER(of course, they usually do). It was very much repoed from you sooo. Nothing you can do about the co-signor having or not having a repo on their credit.
well.. a little bit
One advantage to having voluntary muscle control is that it is voluntary - we are able to control movement which has many benefits.
yes, cause if one person decides to go bankrupt because you guys are having money problems it can affect your credit score to, not just their credit score.
It doesn't erase anything on your own credit report....just adds to it, why would it change someone elses? It adds that you are a bankrupt as well as having missed payments and had a repossession. A credit report simply reports what happened in the past....what ever you do now does not change it...you live with the history you created.
Bad credit will affect your APR on any new loan. Most banks use a tiered credit system to determine APR.
If your credit score is low, it can affect you renting a home, getting loans, or even getting a job. usually having many credit cards, or having credit card debt, can make you have low score. xD SWAG
