I received letter from the management company because I had "boxes, storage bins, and numerous personal belongings in the courtyard." They called these a fire hazard.They removed these items on September 30. A couple of weeks following this items were removed from my porch. All of this happened without notice. The 30 days is up today and I would like to retrieve my belongings.
I am not aware of where they are being kept. The letter I received said they would be disposed of in 30 days. I received the letter on October 1. Also, not all of the items were removed at one time and there was never a mention of the items on my porch.
I am waiting for your answer to ask for them back. Do I have the right to ask that they return them to me? Or do I need to request to pick them up?
Can I request, by phone - working through a management company, that the items be held until I can retrieve them on Saturday?
