Michelle, a repo is a repo is a repo to a credit score. It says you couldn't meet your obligations and the lender had to take back the collateral to try to get their money. A new lender looking a your CR will see 'repo" and say, well, I better charge this person more because they might not pay me back. NOW, IF you pay off the balance due after the repo is sold, then the new lender might say, well, they had hard times but DID pay what they owed. Lets give them another chance at reasonable interest rates.

A repo is a repo is a repo, credit wise.
YES, on a CR, a repo is a repo.
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.
as a repo
A repo is a repo is a repo.
For Experian, a voluntary repossession will remain on your credit report for seven years from the original delinquency date of the debt.
About the same as any repo. The impact is that you couldn't complete the agreement for whatever reason. Same as a repo. A repo is a repo is a repo. That is correct, there is no difference in voluntary and involuntary. Stays on your credit report for 7 years. Don't let it happen to you. It is not that bad ....in fact you can probably get another car just at a higherinterest rate... besides someone has to keep wonk and clay in business.
7 years just like a regular repo. Looks the same too.
If you are giving up your own car for repo then you tell who you financed the car with you want a voluntary repossession. It still looks bad on your credit, but not as bad as a regular repo does
Operation Repo - 2007 Voluntary Surrender was released on: USA: 2012
Neither are good. Call the lender and work something out. a repo is a repo by any standard ,they will sell the unit and go after you for the deficiency no matter what.it will be on your credit as a repo. You will not have to pay the towing and fees associated with the repo. That is the only difference.
IF they follow the laws of your state, YES. A repo is a repo is a repo. they may also be able(and more likely if you have a job)to garnish your wages. NEGOTIATE with them, they would much rather have money than the car. TRY to sell the car. Good Luck
AS far as your credit goes there isn't any a repo is a repo it stays on your credit for seven years.A voluntary repo can save you $200-300 in repo fees .You are still charged all the fees related to preparing the car for auction and auction fees etc. which run between $500-700 and up.And of course that is added to the balance after the the car is sold.
A repo is a repo, voluntary or not. Do not do a voluntary repo or any other repo. Terrible idea!!! Call the lender and work something out. See if you can find someone to take over the payments or possible sell the car to another part and pay off the loan. If you are upside down on the loan, then sell the car and borrow the balance to pay it off. Having your car reposed is a very bad idea. Your credit will be ruined for 7 years. You will also have the pay the difference in what the lender sells your car for and the balance on the note, plus repo fees. Do whatever it takes to prevent this from happening. I can assure you the lender does not want to repo your car. Call them!!!!
The difference in what the car sells for and the balance on the loan, plus repo, and administrative costs. Very, very, bad idea to allow this to happen. Sit down with the lender and work something out. They do not want to repo your car. Voluntary repossession hurts your credit just as much as them initiating the repo. Your credit will suffer for 7 years. Do not allow this to happen, if at all possible,
The second to last sentence should read - Never will a voluntary repossession cost you MORE than a forced repossession. A repo is a repo. Voluntary Repos will, in most cases, save you money due to the cut in fees associated with the repossession. In some cases these fees will not be any less and the cost of a voluntary repo and the cost of a forced repo are the same. Never will a voluntary repossession cost you less than a forced repossession. Either way, voluntary repossession is the decision I would make, due to the possibility of a lesser cost.
Yes, a repo is a repo whether you give it up or they take it.

YES! A repo is a repo. If you turn the vehicle in to the lender and stop making payments this is called a voluntary repossession. The lender will sell the car and you will be responsible for the difference in what the car sells for and the balance on the loan. It will be reported to all 3 credit bureaus as a default on a loan, and your credit will be ruined for 7 years. You would however save to repo fees such as towing. Do not do this. Call the lender and work something out if possible.
A repo stays on your credit for at least seven years. However, you may negotiate with the creditor to have it removed earlier.
It will save you some money BUT you will still have a repo on your CR.
Same as a regular repo. The creditor may still put the repossession on your credit report and it would stay there for up to seven years. Notice the word "may", because it is at the creditor's discretion...
That depends on the lenders qualifications for a home loan. Some will, some wont. The repo is on your credit.. voluntary or not go down talk to a good home loan person and find out what they think.Don't forget the bank will still come after you for the balance on the car loan plus fees etc.so that too will show up on your credit.
