Good eveningMy ex boyfriend still has his things in my garage. I gave him notice via text message on 04/29/2012 to get all of his things out of my garage by 07/15/2012. If he does not come and get his things by 07/15/2012 can I dispose of it? Will he be able to sue me for his belongings if I dispose of them if he does not get them by 07/15/2012? I live in the state of Pennsylvania. Your professional advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

Notice via text message is not sufficient. Instead consider sending a written notice directing your former boyfriend to pick up his items.You may consider the following action:Mail out a "Notice to Reclaim or Forfeit Abandoned Personal Property" to his last known address and post it on the property (yes I do know that the items are in your garage). The notice should contain the following information: * property description. * 10 days to make arrangements and remove the property. * state that the property "will be disposed of" at the expiration of the ten-day periodYou may dispose of the property after the deadline in the notice.I think this is what you wanted to know. Please let me know if I have answered your question or whether you would like further information

Would a certified letter to his home and to his mother's home be ok? This individual also owes me money in which he has not paid. I have a signed promissory note with a date as to when he will pay me back. That date has come and gone. The promisary note states that he will have to pay me 2 percent interest on the balance that is owed if he is late. If I have to sue him what are my chances of wining?
Yes, a certified letter to his home and to his mother's home would suffice.If you have to sue on the basis of a promissory note that has not been paid, typically you would prevail provided he is unable to produce proof of payment
We also work together at a government agency. Would I be able to send him an E-mail rather than a certified letter. His E-mail address his his fill name @ (our agency name).gov
You can send a copy by e-mail but you are required to send a written letter as well
