Who is responsible for damage to a vehicle during a repossession?

Is it legal for the buyer to be charged the full price of their repossessed vehicle?

When a vehicle is repossessed it is sold at a public auction for the fair market value (or as close to such as is possible). The borrower/debtor is responsible for any deficit in the amount between what the vehicle is sold for and the remaining balance of the loan contract plus additional fees such as cost of the repossession action. So, in that context, the person is responsible for the "full price" of the vehicle.


Can you register a car that is repossessed?

In some states, most that is at this point. However, most states are also passing or reviewing legislation that would prevent the registration of a vehicle up for repossession, and in some states such as Florida, the registration of any vehicle to a person who has a vehicle up for repossession.


Do you still have to pay for a car if you do a voluntary repossession in the state of Virginia?

Yes.. anywhere. When a vehicle gets repossessed (voluntarily or involuntarily) and it isn't reclaimed, the vehicle gets auctioned... the person who took the loan on the vehicle is still responsible for the difference between what was received for the vehicle at auction and what is owed on the balance of the vehicle (plus repossession, storage, and auction fees).


Can an automobile be repossessed in Illinois if the owner is present?

Sure. The owner can't stop the repossession and is aware of the incident, which makes it easier for everyone. * Not if the person is in the vehicle or the repossession agent would be committing a breach of peace, such as appearing at a neighbor's or public place where the borrower was and requesting the keys or another vehicle be moved, etc.

If a person does not want a vehicle anymore and gives it back to the lienholder is it considered to be repossessed?

Yes, voluntary repossession. Your credit will still suffer and the leinholder needs to sell the vehicle to get their money back. If they are unable to cover the loan fully, you are responsible for the difference.


Can you still owe money after your motorhome is repossessed?

Absolutely. When an item is repossessed, it's typically auctioned off. The person who the property was repossessed from is still responsible for the difference between what the final auction price was and what the amount owed at the time of repossession was. Additionally, repossession, storage, and transportation costs will be added to the amount owed.


If the person who repossessed your vehicle has no medical certificate which is required by federal law because the tow truck had a USDOT number does that make this an illegal repossession?

What happens to repossessed cars?

Repossessed cars are typically cleaned up and resold on a dealers lot. However, if the lienholder (the person who repossessed it) feels that it will cost too much to restore the vehicle to a sellable status, they will just put it in an auction and take whatever they can get for it. Repossessed cars are first examined fully to determine the remaining value of the car. If the car is suitable for repossession, it will be resold to another person for a discounted price.
