(2) if the property has been picked up, the reasonable costs of pickup and redelivery; and

(3) any applicable late fee.

(b) In the case of a consumer who has paid less than 2/3 of the total of payments necessary to acquire ownership and where the consumer has returned or voluntarily surrendered the property, other than through judicial process, during the applicable reinstatement period set forth in subsection (a) of this section, the consumer may reinstate the agreement during a period of not less than 21 days after the date of the return of the property.
