If you abandon an apartment and you leave behind some of your property, your landlord might put your property in a storage unit. The landlord needs to send you a notice to your last known address. It will say that the landlord will get rid of your property after 60 days.
You can get your property back within 60 days if you:
- give your landlord a reasonable description of the property you left behind, and
- pay the landlord a “fair and reasonable” cost of storage and any related reasonable expenses incurred by the landlord.
A landlord only has to store your property if you abandon or walk away from an apartment. The landlord does not have to store your property if you have been evicted or if you gave notice that you were leaving.
