How can i get belongings back from an ex who agreed in writing to return them?

New Paltz, NY |

after a breakup with a boyfriend i lived with in new york, he agreed to send personal items to my new address out of state. he initated and continued contact via email over two years of stating he would send the belongings time and time again, yet never did. i need to know if i have any legal recourse to get them back and what i can do if he claims he no longer has them?

  1. You can sue him to recover the property in an action for replevin or recovery of your personal property. You can also seek damages for conversion if he claims he no longer has them.
