Stopping Car Repossessions

What is vehicle repossession?

Whenever you finance or lease a car, you usually give the lender a guaranteed interest rate on the vehicle. Each state has its own buyback rules, but having collateral often means that your lender can take the car without notice if you don’t pay off the loan. A default can occur for a variety of reasons. The most common is failing to pay your loan on time or having car insurance.
