Anything not attached to or part of the vehicle. Your personal belongings - and anyone else's belongings in the car - are still yours and cannot be held. If they are, it's considered theft in many states.

Is bank liable for lot rent prior to date of repossession?

Your question is a bit confusing. There are a couple possible scenarios, and a couple of possible answers. If you rent a parking space, and the vehicle is repossessed, then no. The lenderis not responsible for the debt you encurred. If the vehicle has been impounded, and has remained in storage long enough to have accrued storage fees, then the bank must pay those fees before they can recover the vehicle. However, those fees will be transferred to you, the contracted borrower and the person who allowed the vehicle to be impounded. If the vehicle is being held on a mechanic's lien, the same situation. The bank will pay the lien and transfer that cost to you.

Will an impounded vehicle be turned to the lien holder?

Not unless the lien holder goes and retrieves it from impound themselves. The reimbursement of government fees (federal, state, or municipal) outweighs the priorities of the lienholder. When a vehicle goes into impound, the agency which impounded the vehicle puts their own lien on it, and that lien takes priority over the original lien. If the vehicle is not retrieved from impound, it will be auctioned off, and the lien holder basically gets shafted in the process. The person who took the lien out on the vehicle will owe the remaining balance still, and one of the money the agency auctioning the vehicle makes will go towards reducing the amount owed to the lien holder. To that end, you're better to let the lien holder repossess the vehicle and auction it, rather than have it impounded.

Is it legal for my car to get impounded for not having a driver's license when my wife was sitting next to me with her license?

If you are not licensed and are caught driving, in most cases you will be arrested and the car will be impounded. While officers sometimes have discretion to release the vehicle to another licensed driver or to write you a citation instead of making an arrest, this isn't always so, or they may opt not to use their discretion. It is certainly legal for the car to be impounded even if a licensed driver is available. If you have a license but simply don't have it on your person, most states do not provide for arrest and impounding of the vehicle if the officer can confirm that you are in fact a licensed driver.

Can a person be sued for storage fees after they transfer their title to the towing company?

If the car was stored for any length of time before the title transfer, the answer is yes. * If the proceeds from the sale of the vehicle (not simply the value of the vehicle) did not cover the storage fees, the storage company could sue for the amount still owed, unless there was a contract where deficiency recovery was waived.

If your car is impounded what is the law regarding notification before they can sell your car at a lien sale auction?

For any car that is impounded (not available for release without a police OK) or stored (available for release to the registered owner without a police OK), a written or verbal notice must be given to the party from whom it was taken. If no verbal notice of the vehicle was given to the person who had custody of the vehicle at the time of impound/storage - a notice must be mailed(15-20 days) to the last registered owner and legal owner (loan holder). If the storage fees and any back DMV fees (if any) are not paid within generally 30 days, the tow company may sell the car for lien fees. Notice of the impending sale is to be sent to the registered and legal owners prior to the transfer of title due to the lien sale.

Do you still have to pay for a car if you do a voluntary repossession in the state of Virginia?

Yes.. anywhere. When a vehicle gets repossessed (voluntarily or involuntarily) and it isn't reclaimed, the vehicle gets auctioned... the person who took the loan on the vehicle is still responsible for the difference between what was received for the vehicle at auction and what is owed on the balance of the vehicle (plus repossession, storage, and auction fees).
