Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.

.

If you are asking if you can keep ex's personal property, then the answer is no, not unless he has either gifted it to you or has abandoned it after you gave him written notice to reclaim it within XX days and he has failed to do so.

.

If neither or those things have happened, then the personal property is still his and you would have to return it upon demand unless you terminate the bailment with proper written notice before he comes to get it.

thanks
