Right of Redemption

The bank repossessed my vehicle. What can I do to get it back?

I need to know if there is anything I can do after my vehicle has been filed for repossession through a bank? Can I go to bank and pay an amount higher than the amount owed during the repossession time and still keep my car?

What you are asking about is called the right of redemption in law. The right of redemption allows former owners who have had their vehicle repossessed or their home foreclosed upon to reclaim their property.

Generally speaking, to redeem your property you would likely be required to pay off the entire balance of the loan on the property in question, in addition to any cost of foreclosure or repossession, legal fees, and other costs incurred by the lender in its efforts to enforce the loan agreement, all in a single lump sum.

Not all states allow former owners to redeem their properties. You did not mention your state of residence so I cannot determine if you have the right of redemption for vehicles. Therefore, I urge you to consult with an attorney in your state to discuss your rights in this situation.

If your question concerns real property, see the Bills.com resource Right of Redemption Foreclosure, which discusses how homeowners can use the right of redemption to reclaim a foreclosed home.

I hope this information helps you Find. Learn & Save.

Best,
