Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.
Reasonable attonreys fees and costs can be allowed because of a bankruptcy case. The creditor will be monitoring the case, and courts have allowed these costs.
Now, were you paying the monthly car payment directly to the creditor yourself or was the payment part of your payment to the trustee?
If the note was paid directly by you, they will issue title once the payments are complete, including these extra costs.
If the trustee is paying it, they will pay out based on the claim provided by your lender and your chapter 13 plan.
The lender will issue title once your bankruptcy case is completed. (or if you have paid the original contract balance along with the fees and costs).
So, they would be part of the bankruptcy if your trustee is paying the claim.
If you are paying the note directly, you would pay them directly to get the tit,e
let me know if you have any other questions.
