I have a vacation home that i rent. The last guest kept extending his stay and he was prompt with payment each time. However, he made the excuse to delay payment claiming he was in hospital .I believed him and it turns out that he left the property a day early without payment for the last 7 nights.
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: When i entered the property i found all of his personal belongings like clothes removed. The place was in a dreadful state, i found drugs, paraphenalia and trash scattered around. He left his car blocking the driveway
.There are new guests arriving this evening who would not have been able to use the garage so i collected all his left bits and pieces , put them in his car and had the car towed off of the property. He basically has left an unpaid bill of $1000. He ignored all my messages for the last 3 days and i thought it was because he was still in the hospital but i fund reciepts inside proving that he was never in the hospital. I am now trying to decide whether i should call police , email and tell him i have removed his left car and belongings from my property and request payment before i hand them back to him.What are my rights?
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: 1. Is it legal to remove a guests car and belongings from property? 2.Should i call police and inform them about the action i took? 3.Is it legal to request payment before handing back his belongings including auto
