disposal of items
Ask a Lawyerwhat's this?
QuestionCountry: United States of America
Hi, my live-in boyfriend for 2.5 years leaves 7 months ago from today and leaves a coffee table his mother had given him and some little sentimental items of non value. He left 1 week before rent was due and owed me about $2000. Also, my credit is now destroyed. Will it be against the law for me to now sell the furniture he brought here (1 coffee table, 1 couch, 1 end table)...he says he can sue me for theft, but I have given him ample opportunities to get it over 7 months Now.
AnswerYou normally need to try to give 30 days notice in writing that you intend to dispose of the items; and then also inform the local police what you are doing as well. After that you should be okay. You may sue him in small claims court to collect on what he owes you...
