Repossessions in Orange County

Protecting Your Property

If you are facing a difficult debt issue and are struggling to make payments on your automobile loan, your vehicle may be subject to repossession. By taking out a loan, the creditor still legally has rights to your vehicle. Other financial difficulties can also lead to threats of repossession of vehicles, tools or items bought on credit.

Repossession entails that a creditor will take back your property if you have failed to make regular payments. If you have been threatened with repossession, it is absolutely essential that you seek out the advice and guidance of our Orange County bankruptcy attorney as soon as possible.

Will my assets be repossessed?

Creditors can only repossess certain types of property. In most cases, individuals will take out a loan or open a line of credit solely to cover the cost that specific item.

Usually these items are high-ticket pieces including:

  • Cars
  • Furniture
  • Stereo equipment
  • Tools
  • Computers
  • Various Electronics

Creditors and other institutions will repossess the item in an attempt to recoup the losses associated with your inability to pay for the item. However, you are not freed from the debt, even after repossession.

Under California law, creditors are not required to give notice to repossess property but only to give you a post repossession notice. This notice details the steps you must follow to reinstate your loan or regain the property. Failure to provide this notice can forfeit a creditor's ability to collect any money from you.
