Partial move out tenant advice

2 Replies

I have a tenant that didn't pay on the 17th of September and promised to be out as quick as they could move. They have moved 90%, but there's a bed and couch and wine cooler remaining. I know this because they left the back door unlocked and the neighbors went in(the neighbors are hired to clean it). I don't know where the tenants moved and so I don't know what to do. Any advice would be appreciated. I'm in Arkansas.

Hey @Perry Ivy -

First thing you need to do is to research your local laws about your responsibilities. In our area, if the property is vacated the landlord must pay for the stuff left behind to be stored for 6 months.  Your location could be different and be aware that states and towns may have different rules.

Good luck!
