Surrendered Car Bank Doesn’t Want


Surrendered Car Bank Doesn’t Want

Letter to “Ask Leon”

I surrendered a car in bankruptcy and the bank doesn’t want it back because it isn’t running. They won’t give me the title or a statement with a note stating they don’t want the car. The car is in storage and I don’t want to pay the storage fee. Nobody will take car because of the lien holder on the title. I can’t donate to anybody without title. I called several donation places and gave the bank’s number and they are not replying. Can I have the car towed to the bank’s parking lot and leave it and not have any trouble since it was surrendered in bankruptcy? Who is legally obligated for the car?
