Car Title Loan Default

What happens if you default on a title loan? Have you ever wondered? Are you missing payments on your title loan account?

TFC Title Loans we want to educate you on all things title loans, especially missing payments, repossessions, and defaulting on your car title loan contract.

Defaulting On A Title Loan

With all title loans, you are required to make your monthly payments. If you miss some payments, and you do not communicate with the lender, this will probably lead to your vehicle being repossessed.

When you come with us, we will get you the lowest monthly payments, so make your payment will be within your budget, and so it will not be a strain on you.

If you have a title loan with another company, you should consider refinancing it with us, we will lower your monthly payment, so you will be able to afford it.

Missing Title Loan Payments

Missing title loan payments is never a good thing, and defaulting and repossession will vary from lender to lender.

A missed payment on your title loan contract will be considered a default, but most lenders are not interested in repossessing your car after one missed payment.

If you miss multiple payments, and you have no communication with the lender, then your car will be repossessed.

Car Title Loans Repossession

If you do not make monthly payments for about 3 months with zero communication, your car will be out for repossession, this could happen after the second month.

As your vehicle is the collateral for your title loan, if you do not make the payments, the lender is permitted to repossess your car.

You can always contact the lender to make payment arrangements before your car is repossessed, this is the best thing to do because, after repossession, there will be more fees for you to pay.

Lenders do not want to repossess your vehicle, in fact, it is the last thing that they want to do. Title loan companies only make money when you are making your monthly payments.

Once the car is repossessed, the interest stops, so they really do not want to pick up your car. So it is always best to talk with your title loan company and make some of the missing payments.

Repossessed Car

Once the car has been repossessed, you have a couple of options. You can make all of the delinquent payments, with the late fees, and the repossession fee.

If you decide not to make the payments, the lender will sell the vehicle at the auction. As long as the car sells for the title loan balance, you will not owe any money, but if there is a deficiency, you will have to pay the difference, even though you no longer have the car.

If the vehicle sells for more money, then the lender will send you the remaining money after the sale of your vehicle.
