Legal Question

Asked on: 10/03/13, 7:57 pm

My ex moved out 6 months ago. I've asked him to take his belongings many times and let him keep a key with the agreement that he wouldn't show up unannounced. He has come numerous times over the past 6 months but never takes his things. My belief is that he is using this as an excuse to come back. At what point are they abandoned?

Mail him a certified letter that upon his failure to pick up his belongings, you will donate them to charity without further ado (not that you would or could do such a thing). If he does not heed; start a small claims court action against him for services provided in storing his belongings. This should get his attention. You may not dispose of his belongings without his consent, but are entitled to compensation for their safekeeping. Take his key away or change the lock and inform him. Something tells me you do not mind having him around, though.
