The debtor is liable for the payout balance of the vehicle less resale amount. Additionally, he must pay any repossession fees, storage fees, transportations fees, interest from the lender, and penalties. In the evnet these are not paid, the lender will have no other recourse but to sue for the balance along with court costs, and legal and collection costs and fees.

Repossession laws in the State of Texas?

Pay the note or lose the car. The vehicle may be recovered from any location that is discovered provided the repossession agent does not violate the FFDCP Act or break the peace. If the debtor breaks the peace, that is on the debtor; many go to jail for such behavior.If the repossession agent is not able to notify the debtor that he has secured the vehicle, the agent is legal bound to contact the jurisdictional law enforcement agency that a repossession has taken place with 24 hours of securing the vehicle. Most contact law enforcement as they are driving away from the recovery.

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.
