i have tried numerous times to call him ,. he never answers or responds to messages,
the address i have for him i'm told is an abandoned building ...
also theagree ment to remove the scrap metal from the property was verbal between the previous owner of the business and property i own..
I also have a witness that was there when he was told to remove his equipment..
this man is a creep and very shady.. i have know of him 2002 when he made a verbal agreement with the previous owner to store equipment here,, for $250 per month.. he has never paid a dime.. i bought the busniness in july 2008 ,, the equipment has been here on and off since 2002 ,,. but the one piece left has been sittin here since june 2008
what do i do about the agreement for storage.. that would be approx $20000 ..
that was with the previous owner .. should i hold it for strorage fees.. this is private property that is posted,, could i have them arrested if they try to come take it with out my permission. ??
what woulb be the repercussions if i got rid of it... he can prove he owns it as far as i know.
so tell me this,
what if he doesnt actually own the equipment.. he has borrowed it from someone else..
i suspect maybe that's why henever came and got it.. NOT HIS ,, DONT CARE !
what could they claim or sue me for ??
do i not have any rights as a property owner to clean junk off of it..??
have it hauled off for scrap !
i dont know who or if it belongs to someone else..
also . wouldnt he be responsible to them ! he left it here ..
