Good afternoon. Just to be clear, she lives there now? How long has she been there for and what State are you in?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Her things have been here for about 10 months...she was only here for a couple of weeks then to jail. Texas

Thank you for the additional information. At this point, if she is in jail for four years, you would not be expected to simply keep her room for her. However, if she has some personal belongings in there and you want them out so you can rent the room to someone else or use it for your own personal reasons, you can box her things up and store them for her. If you do not have the room or want to, then you need to send her notice, advising that she needs to make arrangements for someone to pick up these items or else they will be disposed of. You do not just want to throw them away or give them away but you do need to allow her some time to get someone to pick them up.
