What Are Your Options

Listed below are some of the options that you may have to get your car back. Remember, it is best to contact our team before you make any decisions, to make sure that the legal path you choose is the right one.

  • Redeem Your Vehicle: This is another word for buying your car back, meaning paying the lender the entire loan balance including all arrears and repossession fees.
  • Reinstate Your Loan: Some loan agreements allow the borrower to reinstate the loan by paying past due payments, while others demand a full loan payment. Check your agreement for terms.
  • Buy Your Vehicle Back at Auction: If your lender sells your vehicle at auction, you have a chance to buy it back, but keep in mind that you will still owe the remainder of your loan balance.
  • File for Bankruptcy: If you file for bankruptcy before the sale of your vehicle, it will prohibit the lender from selling your vehicle, buying you time to obtain the money needed to get your vehicle back.
