Best Answer

Some will work out a deal, but recognize that they will auction the vehicle and receive far less than it's worth, then they will charge administration fees and anything left will be charged back to you. You'd be better off if you went to the lender, let them know what you're trying to do, then sell the vehicle yourself. You'll be able to get more money that way and if the bank knows that you're planning to pay them back they may actually work with you... but they aren't required. Defaulting on a vehicle loan can be expensive and a financial disaster.

Can lender refuse to pick up car and still refuse to release title?

The title is only released when the debt or loan is paid in full. If you want the lender to pick up the car, I'm guessing that you can't or don't want to make the payments. The lender can refuse to pick up the car, but, if the debt remains unpaid, they will probably have the car repossessed which will negatively affect your credit rating.

Not right away.Generally:The lender has a reposession company pick up the car and take it to an impound yard.The lender has the title changed to their name.The lender sell the car to a wholesaler, usually for the wholesale book value.From the proceeds the seller recovers the legal fees and the reposession fees. The balance of the money is credited to your account.Now the lender comes after you for the rest of your account balance. The can:Negotiate with you and settle for part of the money.Get a collection company to recover as much cash as they can from you.Take you to court and now the court can garnish your pension to pay off the debt.

Will your insurance go up if you voluntarily give up your car?

If you give up your car, cancel your insurance, as you don't need insurance if you don't own a car. If you are talking about a voluntary repossession, the answer, is possibly, on another car. A repo is a repo, no matter if it is voluntary or not. Your credit will be damaged for 7 years, and this may effect you insurance rates. Don't do it or let it happen. Contact the lender and work something out if possible.

How long after you let the lender know of a voluntary repo and the car has no plates and insurance should it be picked up?

No what he did is called this a repo co. or a private individual? If your car is up for repo the police will not arrest you it is a civil matter between you and the lender.
