Bankruptcy Search and Bankruptcy Monitoring for Auto Lenders

When a borrower files for bankruptcy, lenders suddenly find themselves competing with other creditors trying to recover any portion of the borrower’s limited funds. In most cases, the lender is left wondering if, and when, they’ll ever recover their debt, and if so, how much can they possibly get back?

For the last 40 years, lenders have stayed away from the idea of pursuing their debt on a loan when it’s gone into bankruptcy status because of the tiresome and risky hours spent trying to navigate the bankruptcy court. All of this can be done for a portion of a debt they may never see.

In most cases, if you’re a lender, chances are you don’t have the knowledgeable personnel on your team to handle a bankruptcy case. To acquire this kind of expertise, it can take years of training to understand the main components of bankruptcy law.

As a lender, you can hire a law firm to handle your case, but this can cost thousands of dollars and after time spent attempting to recover your debt, there may or may not be a payout. Overall, when a borrower goes bankrupt, the lender is left in a risky situation.

Until now.

With Verifacto’s proprietary bankruptcy search application and easy POC (Proof of Claim) system, lenders can file a claim in bankruptcy cases to get their debt paid without having to deal with the expensive legal department or hours of wasted processing time.

POC Filing Technology

Verifacto’s Easy POC System works by giving the lender a user-friendly platform that handles all of their bankruptcy inquiries without the need of a professional:

  • The POC system contacts the bankruptcy court and gathers all necessary information upon the lender’s request.
  • All required data is prepared and the POC is generated for the lender to verify its accuracy.
  • The system files the POC with the bankruptcy court for the lender and then provides the successful filing receipt straight to the lender.

The typical filing process without Verifacto’s system can take hours per each POC and can cost over $1,000 leaving the lender with a lot of manual labor and high expenses. Not to mention the uncertainty if they’ll ever reclaim their debt. Once lenders implement Verifacto’s bankruptcy POC system, POC preparations reduce dramatically while providing the lender with full backup support.

Bankruptcy Search Tool

While getting your debt back is important, as a lender, you also want to be prepared for any unexpected bankruptcy with your customers.

Verifacto’s bankruptcy search application allows lenders to pull real-time data from bankruptcy courts to immediately discover if a potential or current customer has filed for bankruptcy, how many times they’ve filed, and a prediction of the likelihood that they’ll file in the future. This gives the lender full control and the ability to view all essential data to help make better business decisions.

All bankruptcy court records are conveniently viewed from the lender’s screen for any bankruptcy district across the country, giving lenders ultimate access to better protect their business.

How CPI Can Positively Impact Auto Lending Margins and Reduce Risk

In today’s market, auto lenders are battling to maintain profitability and growth. Finance companies, banks and other lending groups are all competing for consumer auto loans. In this economic climate, it is imperative that lenders protect their bottom line by minimizing losses.

One initiative that lenders can take to help minimize losses and protect their profitability is to purchase collateral protection insurance (CPI) to help control their risk. This shields lenders in cases where the consumer isn’t current on their insurance and is either in an accident or the vehicle is returned from the borrower with damages. In addition to controlling the risk, a sound CPI program will increase profitability through an entirely new profit center, as well as help to retain existing customers. It’s a win-win-win for lenders.

How Does CPI Benefit Lenders?

Most CPI programs are administered by a third party – the CPI administrator tracks all borrowers in the lender’s auto loan portfolio to make sure that each loan has the necessary coverage in place. If the borrower has not purchased coverage for his car, or has allowed it to lapse, the administrator sends out a series of notifications informing him that he must correct the coverage issue immediately. If the borrower still does not comply, the lender has the option of placing CPI coverage on the loan and adding the premium to the loan balance.

A number of auto lenders today “self-insure” their exposure to uninsured collateral by simply absorbing the losses. But many auto lenders have no idea exactly how much exposure they are actually carrying, because they aren’t identifying and tracking those borrowers who have not maintained coverage on their vehicles and therefore can’t accurately budget for it.

A CPI program ends up being the most efficient way to control the risk of uninsured collateral since only those borrowers who have not maintained the required coverage on their cars end up paying for it. When deciding to implement a CPI program, it’s important that lenders select an experienced company with the technological and customer service capabilities to accurately identify those borrowers who have allowed their coverage to lapse, or have policies with other deficiencies such deductibles that are too high. This is where Verifacto comes in.
