A tennant left in a hurry, claiming her violent ex-husband had found her again and that she had to leave for the saftey of herself and her daughters. She moved out and wrote to me, returning the keys. When I visited the property I discovered she had taken all of her possesions but left a sofa and chairs and a vacumm cleaner. In her letter to me, she made no mention of the fact the furnitre had been left behind. Due to her circumstances, she left no forwarding address or contact details. Since I need the property to be cleared before reletting it, am I at liberty, without penalty, to dispose of the items which she abandoned?
