Voluntary Repossession of RV

We are about to surrender our RV to Wells Fargo. They want us to sign a paper saying we are liable for the deficiency balance.

Bill's Answer: Answered by Mark Cappel

Because I have not read your original loan contract or the new document Wells Fargo wants you to sign, I can only speculate as to the contents of either. You should accept the following observations accordingly.

I would be surprised if Wells Fargo did not already have terms in your original loan contract stating that you are liable for any deficiency balance upon repossession. In fact, I would be more than surprised if it did not. My guess -- note my word choice -- is that the new document repeats what is already in your contract and adds that by surrendering the RV you are giving up your right to possess it.

I see no reason why you cannot write your own drop-off document and ask the branch manager to sign it. I would be surprised if the branch manager has the authorization to do so, and as a result you may leave the office without signing each other's forms.

We are retired and handed our RV back voluntarily. The attorneys contacted us and we are waiting to be contacted by the court. Our question is, we live on Social Security and VA disability. Can this income be attached or garnished?
