A: Well for now you are still the titled owner of record. You probably dont just want to let the vehicle sit or it will be towed and cost much more than you will pay to have it towed now, REGARDLESS of who agreed to what.

Your decision here should be more guided by whats convenient for you than by technicalities, if that makes sense.
