Grow Financial Credit Union Says They Are Holding My Car Title as Cross-Collateral. – Garrett

“Dear Steve,

I paid off my car with grow financial credit union in clearwater, Fl about three months ago. I have not rec’d a title and figure they are holding it as a cross collateralization clause somewhere in my paperwork. I defaulted on their cc due to the times. Can they reposses my paid up car??? What can I do to get my title?



Dear Garrett,

Unfortunately it sounds right to me. The cross-collateralization issue is a nasty little trick credit unions use.

You can get your title once you either pay off the card or negotiate some other solution with the credit union to resolve the credit card debt.

    You answered part of my question. Will GF reposses my car at this point or just keep the title? Do you have experience with GF. Can you help negotiate a payment plan? What if I change the name on the title to my corp? Thanks, Garrett
