I am about to regain possession of a property following arrears - bailiffs are due imminently. The tenant has been burying his head in the sand continuously, ignored all communications and I fully expect him to still have all his furniture in the property come eviction day. I know I have to hang on to it for 90 days, so I would like to try and avoid the resulting hassle by telling him there will be a substantial storage charge if I have to do so - not trying to make money out of him, but trying to make it not worth his while to leave stuff behind.

The amount would get added to the value of the small claim which is due in court in about 6 weeks.

What storage fee would be considered "reasonable", for a 1-bedder-full of furniture?
