Thanks for your question.

Generally the car is sold once it is repossessed, I.e taken away.

The time limit can vary. Generally the finance company will put the car in auction.

The only way you can prevent a sale is to speak to the finance company and offer to pay the outstanding finance. The car will probably be sold at auction and the finance company is only interested in recovering the outstanding finance and its associated losses. you may have to make payment in full to cover the losses to keep the car. Ring the finance company and negotiate.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further queries.

On the 15June the person who had lost his case he started to take cars from the address and damaging others on the property should he have been able to remove these assets before the baliffs arrived.?
