Tenant left items after leaving the property and is now requesting them to be returned.

Waldorf, MD |

We are in Maryland and the tenant left the property completely trashed. Tenant did not return when they stated they would to pick up the items left in a shed. The items were placed outside for the tenant to pick up. Also, the tenant replaced a light fixture inside the property and now wants this returned. What does Maryland law say the responsibility of the landlord is to return any items to tenant after move out?

  1. You should contact an attorney that practices landlord tenant law. The response to your question depends on the jurisdiction/county where the property is located. I would also require more information as to whether lease was over, whether there was a security deposit and amount of damages to property.
