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.
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.
