Though I do not disagree with Mr. Andriotis, you have several choices:
1) Return the item(s)
2) Do not return the item(s)
3) Return the item(s) and charge a storage fee
What you do may or may not have an implication it that you MAY get sued. Depending on what your tolerance for going to court is, it MAY be best to just return them. Now, if the property was left in a MUCH worse condition that "broom clean" you clearly have a breach of contract issue at hand. Not only COULD you refuse to return the items, you could also sue for the value of cleaning the place.
As I said, it depends on your tolerance for a lawsuit and how angry you really are. If in doubt, contact a local attorney to assist you further.
