Tenants said they would be out on the 15th or 20th at latest they haven taken none of the items from basement still have things in the apartment. Haven't seen or heard from them in almost 2 weeks. There is no lease, and also no deposit.
How long do I have to wait before I enter?
1 Answer from Attorneys
In Ohio, if there's a doubt about whether the tenants have vacated from a residential apartment, then you will want to go through the statutory eviction process as outlined in Ohio Revised Code 1923.04 or you risk a violation of Ohio Revised Code 5321.15 which outlaws self help evictions. When it comes to liability under Ohio Revised Code 5321.15, it does not matter that there is no written lease or security deposit.
