My car has been repossessed. What will happen now with the car, and can I get it back?
The Federal Trade Commission has information about automobile repossession, including the creditor or lessor's right to seize and sell the vehicle and sue the consumer for any deficiency, and the consumer's rights and obligations upon seizure and resale.
The FTC website provides a brief overview of repossessions that may be unlawful.
It also describes steps consumers can take to prevent repossession, including working out payment arrangements with the creditor and seeking help from a credit counselor.
State laws differ on many of these issues, so this site should be used as a general resource.
