1. Dear Teresa, your mother can take this stuff to the nearest dump and dispose of it as she pleases. Under English law, the leaving of goods on a property constitutes a trespass so the owner of the property, such as your mother, is entitled to remove those items from the property and to inform the owner as to their whereabouts, should they ask. There is no obligation on your mother to store these belongings or to take care of them. No such duty is owed to a trespasser. I would also advise your mother to securely lock up her premises in future and to deny this person access so this doesn't happen again, as next thing this person might move in.
