  • More Than Expected!

    I found the firm's representation to be more than what I expected. I was always kept in the loop, all my questions were answered (whether or not I asked more than once the same question), and I felt completely supported by the firm staff when going through this (at times) scary ordeal. Thank you again.

Repossessed Cars In Chapter 13

Repossessed Cars In Chapter 13 One of the most popular ways of getting repo’d car back is by filing Ch 13 in California. Regardless of whether it is a small car, SUV, truck, van or motorcycle, you can always get it back from your lender by filing for chapter 13 bankruptcy. And what’s more? You can also renegotiate the loan repayment terms with your lender and manage your other debts as well!

Repossessed Cars In Chapter 13 

Once you have filed for your chapter 13 bankruptcy, the US Bankruptcy court issues an ‘automatic stay’ order with immediate effect. This stay order prohibits all your creditors from further pursuing any collection activities against you. Also, your car lender loses their right to repossess your vehicle or sell it if they have already repossessed it before the petition was filed. Typically, once you have filed your chapter 13, you lender will be obligated to return your car to you.

However, it is important for you to ensure a timely filing of the chapter 13 to retain your car. For instance, if your lender has already sold off your car, filing a petition later will not bring it back. In most states, the lender is obligated to hold a repossessed vehicle for at least 10 to 15 days before selling it. It is a good idea to file your chapter 13 within this period. Filing chapter 13 will not only prohibit the lender from selling your car but also give you to chance to reinstate your loan and get your repo’d car back.

Typically, when lenders are notified of chapter 13, they willingly return the vehicle to the debtor. However, in case your lender is reluctant to cooperate, your attorney will file a Motion for Turnover, that will issue a court order for your lender to return the car to you.
