Legal Complications

Car title loans function in the same way as any other loan. We urge our customers to consider these following factors when they do decide to proceed with the title loan process:

  • Only borrow what you need
  • Make payments on time
  • Make early payments if you can

 

Even if you are allowed the maximum amount, it is smart to consider only borrowing the amount that you need. It is tempting to accept that maximum loan amount, but it can result in vehicle repossession. Some lenders are not so quick to repossess and will work with you to reach a compromise, but frequent missed and delinquent payments can ruin this contract. Unlike other collateralized loans, making early payments do not have any consequences, in fact it is preferred.

 

Debt Settlement/Repossession/Lender Breach of Contract

 

If your vehicle is repossessed, you may be able to reach a debt settlement with the lender to get the vehicle back. You may also use these services if you suspect that you are a victim of a corrupt lender. Sometimes, lenders will take advantage of your financial situation, and it is important to know your rights and protect yourself.
