What happens when they repo a car and loan is still owed and they put car up for auction Who is responsible for the balance of the car loan?

I'm not sure if this is valid in every state, but I believe that if the car is sold at an auction, you will still be liable for the left over balance. If the car is sold at an auction and the sell price covers the balance of the loan then, I don't think you will need to pay anything else. Maybe some fees for the repo. I "think" this is how it works

Yes, of course. The lender forecloses on the dishonored promise to pay, takes possession of the home, auctions it to the public, and you still owe whatever amount they were not able to obtain at the auction to satisfy your loan obligation. If the home has more equity in it than you owe, then the extra proceeds of the auction will go back to you, but you'll need a new home, unless you won the auction.

What is the opposite of a fully amortizing loan?

Any loan where the loan balance is not paid off by fixed, regular payments. A balloon loan is a simple example. The loan comes due before the balance has been paid off. The outstanding balance is then paid in one lump sum. A fully amortizing loan is a loan with a monthly payment of sufficient size and a term long enough that the outstanding balance of the loan will be reduced (amortized) to zero. In other words, on the maturity date of the loan (the date you can stop making payments), there is no outstanding loan balance to be paid off. The loan has been paid in full. A portion of each monthly payment was used to pay interest on the outstanding balance. The remainder of each monthly payment was applied to the loan balance as a repayment of principal. There is no "opposite" of this. There are alternatives. A loan could be interest only -- where the entire monthly payment represents interest and there is no amount of it applied to the loan balance. As such, on the maturity date of the loan (the end of the loan term), the payoff balance due to the lender is identical to the original loan amount. There has been no amortization of the loan balance during the term of the loan. Another alternative is a loan based on 20 year amortization but with a 5 year term. In this case, the loan payment is established by the amount that would be required to fully amortize the loan over a 20 year period (down to a balance of zero). However, at the end of 5 years, the loan matures (the end of the term) and the remaining balance must be repaid. That payoff amount will be less than the original loan amount because some amortization has occurred, but is certainly greater than zero (which would have taken another 15 years to reach).

What is a disbursed loan balance?

When you get a loan, sometimes the entire amount of the loan is not given out (disbursed) immediately. For instance, suppose the loan is a home equity loan. Usually, the person receives portions of this loan as needed. Suppose the total loan available is $50,000. The person takes $10,000 of this amount. The disbursed loan balance is now $10,000. Depending on the contract, the person will receive a bill for an installment payment to reduce this amount plus interest.

How long after a repossession can a lender come after you for the money owed still?

When the vehicle is recovered, it is taken to a lot, inventoried, and eventually taken to auction.

In the event the lender obtained a judgment against you for the unpaid balance, they have 10 years from the date the auction proceeds were applied to the loan. If there is no judgment, they have 7 years.
