What does the rental agreement say regarding this?

I've also seen occasions where the wind blew/pushed cars into the street where the police sent a wrecker to tow the abandoned car. Interesting how it can do that. Your friend might go through the paperwork to file a lien on it for storage and take title that way but I heard that takes time. --172.58.xxx.xxx

Hopefully someone from your state will be more helpful..I only know my state laws in regards to such property. Is this in Florida? --172.59.xxx.xxx

Good one Richard.

bet[FL], if you look at the top of the page, to the left, in purple lettering, under the big green banner, you should see a selection for "Landlord /Tenant State Laws". That may help you find the answer. --76.129.xxx.xx

Not all states address abandonment. I am fortunate to be in one that outlines the steps clearly.

I can't speak to Florida standards but a good first step is letting the folks know that they left stuff behind and they need to claim it or it will get disposed of. I would be posting the property, sending first class letter to them, another first class letter to myself and then send a certified letter. You will need to prove that you attempted to reach out them to let them limit the damages that they caused. --24.101.xxx.xxx

Sometimes the wind will throw a branch or something against the car's window & break it.

Raccoons are strong - one might climb in and move the shifter to neutral.

Estimate the square yards of the "mountains of stuff" and get the appropriate number of roll-off dumpsters.

Cheap labor, like from craigslist, is OK to just throw stuff into the dumpsters. --68.229.xxx.xxx

This is very state-specific. In my state, if you have an abandoned vehicle on your property you can file paperwork with the BMV to get title. There's a process you go through where you send a certified letter to the address on file, wait 30 days, send another letter, wait a couple more weeks, and then they'll grant you title.

I'm in the process of buying a house from an estate that has a 1995 Chevy Lumina Coupe in really good shape up on blocks. I've had several contractors salivating over it. It will be interesting to go through the process! --104.230.xxx.xxx
