What is Reposession?
Those facing repossession can be left in a tough position; not only will they be left without a vehicle, but stand to suffer a negative impact on their credit score. If your vehicle has been repossessed there are a few things you should know. “Repossession is the term used to describe the taking back of property after a borrower has defaulted on payments. The lender either repossesses the collateral or pays a third-party service to do so.”-BankrateIn terms of auto loans, a repossession is when a lender takes back the vehicle, voluntarily or otherwise. Repossession is most often due to non-payment but can happen for some other reasons, such as false information on loan documents.
How does repossession affect my credit?
According to the TransUnion Credit Report User Guide, a repossession will show up on your credit history report under “Manner of Payment” either as a code 08 for repossession or a code 08a for a voluntary repossession.
Repossession will undoubtedly leave a serious blemish on your credit history but the extent of the change will largely depend on your credit score before the repo. A great credit score could see a significant drop, while a poor score may not drop so drastically in number. Payment History accounts for 35% of your FICO score. However, regardless of your score after a repossession, the negative report itself will affect your buying power. Learn How to get your free credit score here.

Can I get an auto loan after repossession?
