Whether you were behind on your auto loan payments or not, the credit union must follow the law and handle the repossession properly.
We all know that when a borrower falls behind on payments or breaks the terms of an auto loan agreement, the lender is entitled to repossess the vehicle.
But, once the credit union repossesses a vehicle, there are consumer protection laws that must be followed. These laws offer protections to borrowers - from an improperly handled repossession, such as tactics used by an overly aggressive repossession agent, to inadequate communications sent to the borrower about the repossessed vehicle . When these laws are broken, the borrower may have fallen victim to an unlawful vehicle repossession and be able to pursue a lawsuit against the credit union.
