On about the end of August 2016 my father n law and his girlfriend got evected from their house for non payment of rent. Being homeless my wife and I opened our home for what was supposed to be a few weeks. After 7 months of pure direpect , no financial help, no anything we requested them to leave with a 30 day verbal notice. They did leave but not Whirhout using slanders remarked and obscenities. Anyway on monday March 6th they left and turned in keys only taking a few belongings saying will return tommorow for other property.Havent heard anything but a few threating voicemails. Did file file a a right to quite but never got served because they left. After looking found alot of damage to room where they was staying and my workshop out back in which is filled with their things. Can I charge them for storage? Can I sue for damages, how long do I keep their things. It's really taking up all my work space. Already paid out 200.00 just in moving off junk they collect in those months which is outrageously a lot of stuff.
Sure, you can do all that. I'd start by giving written notice to them to collect their things by a certain date or you will start charging them an amount for storage, and then will dispose of their things as abandoned by some days after that.
yes, you can sue for any damage they did, regardless of what happens with the storage issue. But it would be cheaper to go to court over both things at once rather than separately.
