What Does Repossession Mean For You?

When someone contacts you and says they intend to repossess a belonging, you have several options available to you.

  • Pay the balance required. This is obviously the most preferable option. However, in most cases, if you could afford to pay the balance you would not be at the stage of repossession.
  • Negotiate a modification to the terms. Sometimes lenders will accept modified terms in lieu of paying a balance. You might agree on a smaller payment amount, or some other difference in terms.
  • Accept repossession. It's important to know that even if a lender repossesses something, their repossession agent may not cause what is called a breach of the peace. That means that they may not be violent or disturbing to you or your family.
