Steps to Remove a Repossession

Removing a repossession from your credit report is a challenging process, but it’s possible with persistence and the right legal assistance with no cost to you.

Verify the Accuracy and Check for Reporting Violations

Review your credit report to ensure that the information related to the repossession is accurate. Check for any discrepancies in dates, amounts, or details. Contact the lender or the repossession agency to obtain copies of the repossession documents. These records can be useful for disputing inaccuracies.

Ensure that the lender followed the proper procedures in reporting the repossession. Any violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) may warrant removal.

Dispute Inaccurate Information

Initiate a formal dispute with all necessary credit reporting agencies (CRAs) that issued the report containing the repossession. You can dispute a repossession online with all three credit reporting agencies, and this is the most efficient way to pursue removal:

  • Experian
  • Equifax
  • Transunion

Include the inaccuracies and provide any supporting documents. Attach any evidence you have that supports your dispute, such as payment records, repossession documents, or any other relevant documentation. The disputes process costs absolutely nothing and our FCRA attorney will help you with any questions you have.


The CRA will forward your dispute to the lender for investigation. The lender must conduct a thorough review and report back to the CRA. Once the investigation is complete, the CRA will provide you with the results. If the repossession is found to be inaccurate, it must be removed from your credit report.

If the repossession is accurate, but you’ve since paid off the debt or reached an agreement with the lender, you can try negotiating with them to have it removed from your credit report as part of the settlement.

If your dispute is not resolved satisfactorily, consult with a consumer protection attorney who addresses credit reporting issues. We can provide legal advice and represent you in further actions if necessary.
