Whether you were behind on your auto loan payments or not, Valley National Bank is required to follow the law before and after the repossession of your vehicle. If you have any questions, gather your documents and contact us for a no-cost evaluation today, toll-free at: 888-668-1225.
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 correspondence 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 Valley National Bank, or their subsidiary, VNB Loan Services.
Fitter Milz is a nationally recognized consumer protection law firm that has represented borrowers who have fallen victim to unlawful vehicle repossessions. We will discuss the issues leading up to the repossession, events during the repossession, and steps taken by the Valley Bank afterwards. There is NO COST to you for the legal evaluation. Flitter Milz is here to protect you from an illegal vehicle repossession.
