They moved 120 miles away and have come down on a couple of weekends. The utilities are still on. We might have an early winter and will need to keep it from freezing. We want to have it appraised to sell and we sure can't while it looks this bad. I want to take affront loader and scrape up the garbage they have left out side before winter hits and it is really bad outside. They did do damage to some walls of the house. Obviously they don't get their deposit back.
We have no idea what their address is. How do you suggest we can find it out
knew we wanted to clean walls etc. and they were going to meet us there to take the rest of their things. They changed things and didn't meet us but When I texted I asked if we could put her things in a box while we cleaned. She said yes. We didn't have to move anything we washed walls and vacuumed. I texted and asked if two piles of white garbage could be taken to the dump. White insulation etc. She said Keith said it was garbage and it was ok. He came down in the middle of the night and locked the doors and took some things. We wondered if we dare clean walls or should we wait until the certified letter receipt comes back and we wait the 15 days. They said that they had taken utilities out of their name and it would be back in ours. He didn't leave us the keys like he was going to. She did text me her address so now I can send the letter. Do you think we would be ok going in to just clean walls? she did have more than 24 hours notice we wanted to do this. What do you think?
just locked the doors
we sent Brittany pictures of what is left in the house and asked if she still wanted it and she said " I guess not". She hasn't been sent the letter yet that says they have two weeks to get their things. I now have her address and plan on sending it tomorrow. I was going to text and let her know if she wanted we could save some of it for two weeks if that would help her. Is this opening a can of worms?
