Good Morning

There is nothing to stop them from asking to borrow something and if you give it to them they have the right to have it.

If they refuse to give it back to you then you have to sue them and get orders.

They are not allowed to keep it if the arrangement was that they return it.

You have an agreement with them and that was, that the item be returned. If they now refuse to return it then they are in breach and you have a right to seek recovery.

You can report it to the police but 99% of the time they will advise you it is a civil matter and tell you to see a solicitor.

So your option is to send a letter of demand for its return and if they refuse then take the matter to court.

In short they cannot refuse to give it back to you.

Here is a link that sets out the claims process in QLD

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Regards

Leon

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
