Customer Question

All my belongings are locked inside a foreclosure which is still being occupied by my ex. His parents changed the locks and he is leaving on monday for medical detox and a potentially long rehab stay. How do I get my personal belongings back? I just want my clothes, medical records, and a lamp that belonged to my grandma. I am not seeking to recover any joint property. I had to leave urgently a month ago with only two pairs of clothes due to issues of violence against me. I am permanently disabled and need my records and some clothes.

Thank you for your follow up.

Generally, a local police / sheriff department can be called and the local police can go with tenant to the property to retrieve tenant's personal belongings, if the current occupant is refusing to return the personal belongings.

I wish you the best of luck!
