The IRS to my knowlege will not/and is not able to put a lien against property that is not outright owned by the person. If the bank holds the title, it is not the person's property yet and is not subject to an IRS Lien. If the vehicle gets paid off, then at that time the IRS can put a lien against it The IRS tax lien attaches to all property, real and personal. However, the IRS has a number of things working against them: 1. The title to the car is being held by the bank. 2. The bank's security interest is perfected (they are listed as a lien holder on the title). Because of this, the bank is going to have priority on the vehicle even if the IRS filed a Federal Tax Lien before the bank gave the loan.

If there are no liens against your vehicle, there is nobody who has (or to have) ground to repossess it.

As long as the bank is listed as the lienholder on the title and as long as you owe them money and haven't paid they can repossess the car.

Yes they can repossess everything that you got a loan for.

If you aren't paying in full they can repossess the car. To a bank " some sort of a payment " doesn't count. Call them and make arrangements.

User Avatar

YES, as long as the car is collateral for a loan, they can repo it.

When the owner defaults on the loan payments

it is up to the bank to decide. Legally, as little as 1 cent.

I have NO IDEA, WHY look here if there is NO ANSERS

User Avatar

If the bank holds the loan, then yes. If the payments are stopped, the bank will repossess anyways.

User Avatar

Yes, the bank has the right to repossess the vehicle if you are in arrears on payments.

User Avatar

there are PRIMARY liens and SECONDARY liens. Like first come-first served, goes by DATE of lien. READ YOUR CONTRACT. You were NOT as slick as you thot you were.

User Avatar

if the creditor's name is nowhere on the title,only your name,no one else. no liens. No one can legally take your car.

User Avatar

YES, IF YOU CLAIM NOT TO KNOW WHERE IT IS. If you call the bank and say I dont know where the car is its gone, they are going to tell you to report it stolen. If you stop making payments on it then they will repossess, if there is no car to repossess then you are still responsible to pay the monthly payment car or no car If you stop paying and there is no car to repossess then they at that point can take legal action against you. I dont know if its reported stolen but take my word for it you will pay somehow.

A bank can repossess a car at any time the loan has defaulted. Many times a bank will wait until a payment is 2 to 3 months behind before repossession.

Your car can definitely be repossessed because of nonpayment. The bank can actually send a company to repossess your car.

A dealer will never repossess, UNLESS they are also the financier. most dealerships sell the loan to a bank, whom you make payment to... this bank will be the "reposseser". Now, that's not to say that the bank will not notify local dealers to be on the lookout for a car they are actively chasing to repossess, but most of the time they will just come to your residence to serve the repo. I have never heard of a dealership doing so, because most banks have folks that can get your car by other means if they want it back bad enough.

Can the police repossess your car? Can the police repossess your car?

If you bought the bike on credit and miss the payments, they can and will repossess the bike and sell it at auction. Just like a car.

User Avatar

The bank doesn't own the car. Unless you used it as an asset, or collateral for a loan from them, they should have no hold on that.

User Avatar

The bank that you have the loan with hires repo men to repossess the vehicle

User Avatar

If you still owe on the car (whether matured or not), the bank can take it if you don't pay. It belongs to them until the loan is paid and the title is sent to you.

A "car dealership" CAN NOT legally repossess a car for any reason unless the are operating as a financial institution (bank/ Lien holder). And they had better be license as a bank if they are. (New York).
