The loan company can repossess any car that the payments are delinquent on. Your BK does not prevent repossession of your car.

How do you get a lien removed from a property deed if the debt was paid off in a chapter 13 bankruptcy?

You must have the lien avoided in the bankruptcy court. This has to happen before the bankruptcy case is closed or you have to petition to have the case re-opened. LIENS SURVIVE BANKRUPTCY UNLESS YOU SPECIFICALLY MOVE TO HAVE THEM AVOIDED. Let me add to the last post. Most of the time, the creditor who has the lien is listed as unsecured, even though they are technically secured. You need to review your bankruptcy to see how the claim was handled. If it was paid as secured (100%) or 100% to unsecured, then contact the creditor. If the debt was paid as unsecured (less then 100%), then you must have the lien avoided. Most chapter 13's are less than 100% to unsecured.

Can a credit collection agency still sue you for unsettled debt even if the original creditor was listed in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

Of course. Your saying the person/co you owed money to (the creditor) went bankrupt. So? His/its bankruptcy does not relieve or change YOUR debt in any way...whether he transferred the debt or not, before or after filing. In fact, the debt you had to that bankrupt party is an asset of its. Hence, when he declared bankrutpcy it is very commonly given to one of HIS creditors as a way to pay them.

A collection agency, or any party, can only freeze your bank account IF they have sued your first and won a judgment against you. If you file for bankruptcy, it will not immediately release the levy on the account. The court that rendered the judgment must be notified of the bankruptcy filing, as well as the judgment creditor. The account could remain frozen until the outcome of your bankruptcy. If your bankruptcy, and the judgment debt is discharged, then the bank account must be released. It is possible to release a levy before discharge, but it will usually require the bankruptcy attorney to do it.
