It will show as a VOLUNTARY repo but still a repo. It will indicate to other lenders that you know when you are over extender and that you DO NOT attempt to use their collateral without paying for it. It IS a good idea to do so.

How long does car ins have to pay a claim on burned vehicle?

The insurance company will run an investigation as to its cause, particularly since they do not want to pay for a vehicle that someone has burned the car to fraudulently avoid paying for the car or who is in the midst of repossession.

Yes, because reguardless of what the company did after they took back the car, the fact still remains that it was repossesed.

If you had a repo in the past can you still buy another car?

Yes, this is not only possible, but if you were responsible and surrender the vehicle for repossession it can be quite easy. I have had both a voluntary repossession as the result of a BK, and a voluntary lease surrender for the same BK. Since that time, long, log ago, I have had many vehicles, and many vehicle loans. At first I of course paid higher interest. But even that reduces with time and a good history.

What are my rights if a commercial vehicle is illegally repossessed?

Well, first, you'd have to explain how the repossession was illegal. There really isn't any such thing as "illegal repossession"... repossession is a legal process by which a lien holder can recovery property which does belong to them in response to a delinquency of payment or violation of the contract.A vehicle which has no grounds for repossession but was taken was not repossessed - that's theft, plain and simple, and if that's the case, then you'd file a police report, an investigation would commence, arrests would be made, and you'd either recover your vehicle or get an insurance payment if the vehicle was unrecoverable. I'm guessing that's not the case, since you're asking this question here.State laws on time which a delinquency must continue for before seizure of assets can be made varies by state... if this law was violated, then you're going to have to lawyer up and take the legal route against the lienholder (the repossessor is not liable in this instance, as they are contractors following the instructions of the lien holder).A criminal act on the part of the repossession agency has occurred if...A locked gate is breached in the course of the repossession.A secured building is unlawfully entered in the course of the repossession.A vehicle other than the one being repossessed was entered without permission during the course of the repossessionProperty damage occurs during the course of the repossession.In the case of a commercial vehicle, a cargo payload is taken with the vehicle.A trailer attached to the repossessed vehicle which itself is not up for repossession is taken with the vehicle.In those instances, a police report needs to be filed. However, if the repossession itself is legit, that still won't get you the vehicle back.

Is it legal to repossess a car from someone's personal property such as their yard or driveway?

Yes. Since the vehicle is no longer the property of the former owner, the lending institution is allowed to have their agent (repo man) recover their property for them. Their agent is allowed to go anywhere that is not fenced, locked or otherwise restricted. If you deliberatel hide the vehicle or prevent the lending institution from gaining acces, it can be considered a form of theft, since the vehicle is no longer yours. * In addition, if the lender has obtained a replevin order the vehicle must be surrendered. When a court order has been issued the agent may enter a locked area or posted area or do whatever necessary short of physical violence or property damage to seize the vehicle, cutting a chain and/or a lock is not considered property damage. Be advised, in most states attempting to hide or prevent repossession of a vehicle where a replevin order is in place can create serious legal consequences for the borrower.

How do I get car insurance when I have taken over someone's car loan?

You need to make sure you have a written contract buying the vehicle and that the finance company or bank has changed the name on the contract or I would not recommend taking over a car payment. The reason is that the vehicle is not yours in any way or fashion. It belongs to the other person even if you are making the payments it still belongs to them. For this reason, you cannot insure a vehicle you do not own. The insurance company cannot pay you if the car is totaled and they cannot pay the other person because they don't have an insurance contract with the company. Sometimes the company will make an exception if you have a contract with the seller.
