Best thing is to LIST what is missing. Find some way to "prove/document" that you own such an item and maybe some witness/proof that is WAS in the car close to the time of repo. This gives you a businesslike basis to deal with the lender about 'finding" it. IF this doesnt get the PP returned promptly, CALL a local attorney. I say this because not ALL repo companys are totally honest and neither are ALL debtors. The most honest repo company employee can suddenly give in to the temptation to "hold back" something of some value while doing an inventory. Some debtors consider PP inventory "claims" the perfect place to get a down payment on their next car.

What do you do if the lender refuses to pick up your car after a Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

There isn't much you CAN do to force the issue if the lender doesn't want the vehicle. You can try: dropping the car off at the lender's place of business with a note and mail them the keys; you can write a letter stating that if they do not pick up their property you will charge them $xxx.00/day storage fees. The first thing you should do though is write a letter (phone calls are ineffective) and ask that they come take THEIR property. * If the vehicle has a low value relative to the cost of repossessing and resale the creditor does not have to recover the vehicle, but can pursue litigation for monies owed. The enforcement of the laws pertaining this issue will differ depending upon the holdings of state appellate courts.

A used pick-up truck is just the same as any other used vehicle more or less.

You have not surrendered it just because you said in your bankruptcy Statement of Intention that you were going to surrender it. Surrender means turning the vehicle over to the creditor or its agent.

Make sure to remove the license plates - at the place you bring the car to, not before - and all personal property from the vehicle.

If the vehicle is not a repossession and is in fact a law enforcement impounded vehicle, in California the answer is, NO.

How can I dispose of personal property left behind by former spouse?

You should check with an attorney for the rules in your area. Perhaps you could call your divorce attorney. Generally, you will need to give him/her at least 30 days notice in writing to retrieve the property. You should pack it up neatly and carefully if you do not want them in the house. You should also keep an inventory of what was packed. You should provide dates when they may have access to retrieve the property and make sure you are there when promised. You should keep the property in a secure place until it is picked up. Keep the situation non-adverserial. If you expect a problem then you should arrange with the police to have an officer present during the arranged pick up. The notice should be sent by registered mail with the inventory attached and you should make certain you keep a copy of that notice and the green signature card. If possible, arrange and confirm the pick up date by email so you will have proof of your efforts to give them access and your compliance with the requested pick up date.
