Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
Technically, you would need to give back the items. However, if I were in your shoes, I would not do so voluntarily. His only recourse is to sue, and then you can use that opportunity to countersue for $1500. Bot***** *****ne is that if he wants his items back, then I would demand payment of the $1500 that he owes you.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
