Here are some questions you may have:

Can a creditor repossess my home?

There are various assets that creditors hold the legal authority to repossess. If you secured a loan for your vehicle, your creditor can likely repossess your vehicle. Items that you had an option of purchasing such as furniture may also be repossessed by creditors. Certain properties that are kept as collateral to help ensure payment of the loan may also be repossessed if the loan is failed to be paid off. There are also times when creditors can take legal action against you and garnish your wages or place a lien on your property if you are unable to pay off your debts. A creditor cannot directly repossess your home. However, your creditor can commence the foreclosure process. This may ultimately result in you losing your home.

What items can’t a creditor repossess?

Creditors do not have the authority to repossess certain assets. For example, creditors are prohibited from repossessing any items you purchased with a credit card. This is because this debt is considered unsecured. Creditors also do not have the legal authority to repossess property that was not specifically classified as collateral.
