Ohio Abandonment law what is it and how dose it work. In this

Ohio Abandonment law what is it and how dose it work. In this case it is equipment that has been left on property and the owners have not been back to colect it, the first has been here for 2 years and the 2nd has been here for 7 + years.



my research reveals there is no personal property abandonment Ohio statute - other than for self storage units which is guided by the terms of the storage agreement. therefore, you need to send a Notice to Reclaim or Forfeit Abandoned Personal Property to the last known address via certified mail with a return receipt requested. state they have 5 days from receipt of the letter to claim the property. you also will want to state that if they designated someone to claim the property, a notarized affidavit shall be presented.


- also, in good faith, you also should post the notice on the door of the premises and you can run the notice in the local newspaper 1 day is probably sufficient, but if you check with the clerk of the county court they can be more specific.


if there is no claim to the property, you can remove it and dispose of it.
