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.

A Detroit bankruptcy attorney from our firm may be able to help you avoid the shame and inconvenience of repossession, but it is vital to take action as early as possible to increase your chances of success

Contact Us for Experienced Guidance in Your Situation

We can intervene on your behalf when you have received notice of an impending repossession action. Your attorney will contact the creditor and attempt debt negotiation for better terms such as a lower interest rate or a reduced balance on the loan.

Creditors are often willing to comply with such a request when they learn that you have hired an attorney because they can see that you are serious about resolving the situation in your favor. The resale value of the item may additionally be less than the amount you owe.

Contact our attorney if you have any questions concerning repossessions.
