i live in new york state. the vehicle was has a lien and sale notice as of 10/19/2009
Expert:  INFOLAWYER replied 7 years ago.
The only way to avoid this is to contact the creditor who placed the lien and either negotiate satisfaction of the underlying debt or a payment plan that is acceptable to both sides. The creditor normally prefers that to taking possession.

the creditor has allowed me to pay but is letting the storage fee continue to incur
Expert:  INFOLAWYER replied 7 years ago.
You need to work out a settlement in writing which would cover all fees to be paid. To avoid repo if money is owed, you may want to concede some storage amount.
