How do I Get My Repossessed Car Back in Michigan?
You can get your repossessed car back if you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy before the lender has sold it. The automatic stay will stop them from selling it. Other protections via Chapter 13 will also allow you to get the car back from the lender. Otherwise, under the Right of Redemption, you have 15 days to get your car back, which means paying off the loan completely on top of any fees from the repossession.
Declaring bankruptcy under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 may be the best option for you, as it will protect you through an automatic stay against further creditor action, as well as addressing the underlying problem of owing more than you can realistically afford to pay back.
What Can Be Repossessed?
When you fall behind on your payments for any type of loan, whether it is for a car, jewelry, an appliance or another item, the creditor has a right to collect on the amount you owe. If phone calls and written notices fail to get you to pay, repossessing the item is a last resort action which will have the effect of satisfying the loan.
