Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
Have you had any contact with him? Have you tried to reach him regarding whatever it is, he left behind? What is still in the rental?
Thank you. You may just want to act in and protect your own interest and store the items, so that he can not return and argue you did not properly evict him and take back possession of the rental and that he still remained. If he did leave property there, is is questionable as to why but if you think he vacated and did send him notice to retrieve these other items and he fails to do so, after 30 days, you could show a good faith effort was made to reach him and see if he would be retrieving them. You can certainly throw out and trash and start making repairs, if you think he vacated but should protect yourself and give him 30 days if possible, to retrieve there, once notice was sent.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
