Car Reposession

Car Reposession

Was your car repossessed or is it in danger of being repossessed?

Did you know that 2.2 million vehicles are repossessed every year, with around 5,418 repossessions hurting consumers every day?

đź’ˇ Car repossessions are when lenders take back your vehicle because you default on your loan (don't pay your monthly statements).

How can you solve the problem on your own?

While repossessions themselves are legal, there are countless consumer protection laws in place to protect people from wrongful repossessions.

Examples of wrongful repossession include:

  • Repossessing the car without notice (if the state or contract has pre-notice requirements)

  • Using physical force during repossession which is a "breach of peace"

  • Not having a waiting period before repossessing the vehicle

  • Repossessing the vehicle for loan statements signed by the previous owner

  • Not giving a notice after repossessing the vehicle, explaining how you can reclaim it

  • Not returning your personal property inside the vehicle

  • Selling the vehicle for an unreasonable price and demanding high deficiency

What can you do?

Wrongful repossession is illegal. If your vehicle was wrongfully repossessed, DoNotPay can help you file a demand letter for wrongful possession using your states laws and help you reclaim your vehicle.

How Can DoNotPay Help?

What if it wasn't a wrongful repossession?

In the case the repo was valid, you will have to pay off any balances you owe in order to reclaim your vehicle. If you can't afford the payments, DoNotPay can help you ask for a payment plan or negotiate the balance you owe.
