Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.
Do you have any reason to believe you're entitled to retain the items please?
I have kept them for 6 plus months, have asked him several times to collect. He now wants to collec
oops didn't mean to send will send something later today
my partner of 3/4 years, moved in Sept. 2009, moved out December 2012. He left between Christmas and Nre Years Evee
Hi sorry, had rogue keyboard yesterday? I have not given him written notice to collect, I have texted him twice to try and arrange to collect, was not convenient for him. He asked once to come and pick them up but I was away for weekend. As it is over 6 months and I still have them in shed where do I stand legally in having to hand them over, could I charge storage etc? Sounds like I am being mean, but he paid no rent, bills, council tax etc. in 2 and half years whilst here (only paid for last 10 months he was here) I gave him 2k from my mortgage account when he moved in to clear a tax debt. He brought no assets to relationship, sold his furniture from his rental place but put nothing into my house. When he left I allowed him to take bedroom furniture in one bedroom, and large 3 seater settee. Plus he had bought shower tray, screen and shower pipe (he is a bathroom fitter) and was going to do up my bathroom. He left with the bathroom not functioning properly as has ripped out bath. He demanded the money for bathroom things when he left, even though I didn't want bathroom doing, this was £1400 that I gave him as he said he would not move out until he got this. I then had to go and have bathroom done, still unfinished 6 months later as I don't have the money to finish off. Basically I have had to re mortgage to get him out of my life. He is now wanting these things out of shed, tools etc. I now feel I want to keep them, and sell them to at least recoup some of my losses. Does he have any legal leg to stand on to get his things after all this time.
