Just imagine being out and about doing some errands and you come back to find your car missing. At first, you assume that it is the work of thieves that see your car as a vulnerable target. However, after you call the police you find out that your car was repossessed.
Situations like this are not uncommon with 1 out of every 2.4 cars on the road facing repossession this year.
You don’t have to go through something like this when you can take proactive steps to stop repossession in its tracks. Here are the best ways on how to stop car repossession in Delray Beach and the available options to you.
You don’t want to wait until your lender files a lawsuit to seize your car. The best approach is to start negotiating early when you are facing financial challenges. In situations like this, you have several options including bringing forward complaints, selling the car, or surrendering the vehicle.
Sometimes, lenders will engage in aggressive and illegal collection practices when you fall behind on your payments. We can use this as a way to file a counterclaim against your lender and get a successful settlement on your behalf. These include things such as reinstating your loan at lower payments, forgiving your loan, or reducing the balance.
Selling the car yourself gives you leverage by recouping the full amount of the loan. Lenders are open to this option, as repossession leads to them selling the vehicle at an auction. They will receive less money than the full value of the loan.
Surrendering the vehicle is when you will turn the car over to the lender voluntarily. They will agree to reduce or waive the deficiency in your loan.
