How long after a tenant has just up and left can we start removing of his things and or selling them? In cortland ny.

Asked over 1 year ago - Ithaca, NY

We had to evict this tenant for not upholding the condition on our lease. He hasn't given us rent or spoken or made any kind of contact since may 25th. We still need the portion of rent and was wondering if it legal to sell his things after a certain amount in time, in cortland ny?
