I am a tenant for NYCHA, I had my friend sleep in my home for about 20 days in the month for 6 months, he asked me if he can move in his furniture, i said yes. He promised me that he will find an apartment when its possible. I realized he was getting comfortable trying to stick around so i removed him with police authority, it has been 2 months since his removal and his property is still in my home I would like them removed since he does not want to converse with me about planning to get his stuff out of my apartment.
This is not a question involving criminal law. You need a civil attorney who can advise you on a civil law suit. You might want to consider a landlord-tenant attorney.
You're responsible for his belongings and you need to give him a reasonable notice before you do anything. The law is not clear but a couple months sounds reasonable. Has he responded or ignored your text messages? You will need to prove that he knew he had xx number of months before you were donating/discarding his belongings before you do so. If you do not know how to reach him, you have a more serious problem and knowing how long it takes to consider it "abandoned" property is tricky. If you are in touch with him and he's not willing or able to pick up his stuff, I suggest putting it in storage, pre-paying 2 or 3 months, and sending him the key. Good luck.
I'm 3 "most helpful" answers away from a free iPad! I may be guessing or not licensed in your state so don't rely upon anything I say. No attorney/client relationship exists. Who reads these disclaimers anyway? If you're reading this, let me know because I'm curious. Did you know that a watched pot never boils and that a stitch in time saves nine? Or that a rolling stone gathers no moss? Honestly, I am surprised that you are still reading this disclaimer. Personally, I normally don’t pay much attention to these things. I am impressed and I commend you for taking the time. I never actually anticipated anyone would ever get this far into my disclaimer and I only wish I had something more meaningful to say. Thank you for bearing with me and for sticking it out to the end.
You need to take the appropriate steps to evict your roommate. Unless he voluntarily vacated, he can still claim possesory rights.
