Interest on writeoff repo

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I was trying to find out some type of understanding on repossessed vehicles in the state of Virginia.  I would like to ask is it legal for a loan company to charge interest on a repossessed auto loan that has been written off as uncollectable?  I had a bad health situation last year and we lost our main car.  I remember receiving one notice stating that I owed like $5000 but now on my credit it is stating that I owe like $22,000.  The vehicle was sold last year in November at a repo auction. It was a new model vehicle in excellent condition and the loan balance at the time of repo was $24000. It doesn’t make since for me to owe $22000 on an auto that was sold for around $15000. Can someone please help me understand this?  The loan company was Santander. I live in Virginia and I think they keep pumping up the balance to try and hurt me.

Welcome to CB.   I'm going to move this to the main credit forum for more views and responses.  Why Chat's site has some excellent repossession information.

Santander is the worst to deal with 

 

you need to read up on the UCC title 9 secured transactions

https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/title8.9A/

 

According to this case, creditors in VA have to comply with the required UCC notices. 

 

read this case on Google scholar 

 

Cappo Management V, Inc. v. Britt, 711 SE 2d 209 - Va: Supreme Court 2011

 

After repossessing the collateral, a secured party may dispose of it in a commercially reasonable manner, Code § 8.9A-610(a), but it must provide notice to the debtor 10 days before doing so. Code §§ 8.9A-611 through -614. Significantly, "t is the secured party's repossession of the collateral, not necessarily the default, that triggers the notice requirement. Absent valid waiver by the debtor in a written agreement made after default, the parties could not alter the notice provisions." Barnette, 457 F.Supp.2d at 659 (citing, inter alia, Code §§ 8.9A-602(7) and 8.9A-624(a)). The parties did not waive the notice requirement in this case. Additionally, Britt, as a debtor, retained an interest in the car after Victory Nissan repossessed it, at least to the extent that she had a right of redemption under the "RISC" and Virginia law. See Code § 8.9A-623(c)(2). Therefore, Victory Nissan was required to provide notice to Britt prior to disposition of the car. Victory Nissan concedes that it did not do so.

 

your best bet is to do some research on what happened to the auto -  if you have the VIN,  the DMV may have records of the sales 

 

We had a  Similar thread here on CB, regarding a late model VW where the lender actually owed money to one of our members, and the reporting was corrected and she received a settlement,  

 

But it wasn't Santander,  

 

you're going to need to find out details  on the same and research this some before we can come up with a course of action , and it may take an attorney to effectively threaten them if the facts come down on your side

Plaintiff alleged the lack of periodic statements evidenced the creditor's express
waiver of its right to charge interest. However, Plaintiff cited statue 612 C.F.R. section
226.5(b)(2)(i) which deals with implied waiver and provides:
"The creditor shall mail or deliver a periodic
statement as required by § 226.7 for each billing
cycle at the end of which an account has a debit or
credit balance of more than $1 or on which a
finance charge has been imposed. A periodic
statement need not be sent for an account if the
creditor deems it uncollectible, if delinquency
collection proceedings have been instituted, if the
creditor has charged off the account in accordance
with loan-loss provisions and will not charge any
additional fees or interest on the account, or if
furnishing the statement would violate federal law."

that's for open ended Credit, not installment loans

      Hello, everyone.
       
      For the past week or so, I've been reading up on ways to deal with a CA that recently showed up on my credit report. I stumbled upon Why Chat's HIPAA program, read through it, and while it's quite clear, I just want to make sure it is the right thing for me. I'd also like to use it to ask potential follow up questions along the process.
       
      It showed up on my credit report June 28th, with a Date of First Delinquency of February 20th, 2017. At the moment, it only shows up on Equifax and Experian. It's from a hospital visit in California, and I am from and currently live in Arizona, and while I did have medicaid at the time, I was told that it would probably not cover it, but they'd let me go through with it anyway. 
       
      I started to get bills from the Riverside County Medical department, but I initially ignored them, as I was an unemployed college student, and my mom advised me it wouldn't matter anyway; The bill was for $991. I'm now 23, and have been working hard on my credit score, this is the only blemish on my record, and I would love to get rid of it completely.
       
      I have a few old addresses on my credit report, but they're all from years before this account, and I've lived at my current address for around 11 years now. Do I still have to go through the deletion process for those other addresses? Other than that, I'm thinking my first step would be to fill out and send the "Initial HIPAA Dispute Letter" to the two CRAs that show the collection, is this correct?
       
      Thanks in advance for any help!

      Hello Credit Board
       
      I am newbie to this forum, but have been lurking for a while. I had recently pulled my credit report and I am having major issues with my student loans. Apparently I have loans that have been transferred \ sold and now are with a new company. The original loan was open back in the 2000's but they are still showing on my credit report. I am not sure how I can have these removed. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. 
       
      Thank you in advance

      I have a Sprint collection  with a hefty amount that is reporting with Source RM, the only collection on my file. Dofd is 12/2018. It was originally passed to Convergance, and most recently Source RM. I DV'd Source RM and received bills and a contract for a financed phone. Is this sufficient validation? Also, should I just leave this alone until the sol passes and then work to get it removed? Also how will the merger with T-Mobile affect my ability to get this removed?

      I am working on cleaning up a few items on my credit reports and not sure which way to start.  There are two Paid Collection medical bills showing on my reports, which is hurting my ability to rebuild my credit after divorce.  They both are being reported by the same medical collection agency that is a local company where I live.  They are both old, but still have a couple years to fall off my reports.  One for $73 has a delinquency date of 3/2015, assigned to collections 1/2016, paid in full 7/2016.  Last reported to credit bureaus on 6/2017,    The other one for $164 has a delinquency date of 5/27/15, assigned to collections 10/2016, paid in full 12/2016 and was last reported on May 18, 2020.  Should I call them and request a goodwill adjustment to have them remove the reporting, write a goodwill letter, or move to the HIPAA letter?  
       
      I also have one account in collection status that I disagree with.  I had disputed it via the credit bureaus, but only got a notation in the credit reports that the debt was conforming, which I am sure means they contacted the collector and they said I owed the debt.  This is a credit card debt that appears to be sold to a collection agency.  The debt amount is $370, delinquency date 12/2018, turned to collection 6/2019.  I am not even sure what this is, but may just be continual late fee charges on account I though was closed.  Where should I start with this one?  Pay for delete or validation letter?
       
      I made the mistake of ignoring my credit report after divorce in 2016 and have a thin file, but these three things are seriously hurting my ability to get a credit card acceptance.  I don't want to keep having hard credit pulls for applications when I know these items are a big reason why I am being turned down.
       
      Thanks for letting me tell my story.

      Does accepting a settlement offer on a closed credit card account help or hurt you in the long run. Account closed with Best Buy in December and now receiving settlement offers from CRA. Should you go for it? What about requesting a pay for delete along with it?
