Assuming you owned the house and you are the bankrupt debtor, it varies from state to state and lender to lender. If you surrendered the house, you should turn the keys over to the lender's attorney. Even if you do that, you may find yourself still getting the real estate tax bills, water and sewer bills, etc. If the lender or someone else has not purchased the house at auction, you may be able to stay for quite a while. Talk to your bankruptcy lawyer about it.

You are currently in a bankruptcy however they repoed your car anyway What can you do?

It depends. If the repo was after you filed, and the lender did not obtain relief from stay to repo, you file a motion to hold the lender and the repo entity in contempt of the automatic stay, and ask for an order that the lender return the vehicle. If the lender did get relief from stay, you cannot do anything. If you are representing yourself, as the saying goes, you have a fool for a client. If you have a lawyer, why aren't you asking him/her?

If you filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy on a repossession balance and the bank never came to repossess the car and the debt was discharged can you get the title?

Unless a secured lender has received a "lift of stay" on a debt included in bankruptcy, they must wait until the BK has been discharged before they can repossess or begin legal procedures to retrieve a vehicle. A vehicle is considered a secured debt and is not dischargeable in a chapter 7. The borrower/debtor should contact the BK trustee and/or the lender to clear up the matter or he or she may face complicated litigation in the future. The title will still show a lien holder and the DMV will not issue a duplicate one until the lender signs the vehicle over to the borrower.

What do you do if you stopped making payments on a car loan after filing chapter 7 bankruptcy and the creditor has refused to repossess the vehicle but will not release the lien?

A vehicle is a secured loan and cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. If a reaffirmation agreement between the lender and the borrower is not possible the vehicle is usually repossessed. However, the lender does not have a legal obligation to recover the vehicle. The lien will not be released until the loan is paid or settled to the satisfaction of the lender. Under new bankruptcy laws, the lender is entitled to collect the full amount of the loan plus any applicable legal fees and interest. This generally means that the lender will file a lawsuit to obtain a judgment which can be used as a wage garnishment, bank account levy or other method as allowed by the state laws to collect money owed.

How long do they have to reposes your vehicle when you file for bankruptcy?

If your Statement of Intention (in a chapter 7) says you intend to surrender the vehicle, you should offer the keys or the vehicle with the keys to the lender or tell the lender when and where to pick the vehicle up. You may want to send a certified return receipt letter to the lender with this same information. Your state laws may give the creditor a definite period of time to respond or the claim will be deemed abandoned. Consult your bankruptcy lawyer.
