Hi, I would suggest that she write to the former partner demanding the return of the her personal items or the equivalent value immediately or she will take legal action.
If the items are not returned, she will have to issue proceedings in the county court and obtain an order for the return of the goods.
An alternative option would be to contact the Police to see if they could retrieve the items. I am assuming the two were not married.
I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.
If you wish to discuss, please feel free to ask further questions. Kind regards,
