    I kicked my ex out 7 months ago and he has left his belongings at my house. I have asked him verbally on numerous occasions to take it but he kept making excuses up. I sent him an email in February giving him 60 days to find storage otherwise I would assume he doesn’t need them and that I will dispose of them and he hasn’t replied and now the time is up. It’s causing me stress as I have nowhere to store my children’s things. Can I dispose of his stuff now without getting into trouble?

    yeah, I would think so. Keep the message you sent him in case he does try to claim you never mentioned it, at least you’ll have some proof that way. 2 months is more than a reasonable amount of time to give him.

    Is it a rental property? In your name only I assume and not a joujo mortgage?

    What sort of things?

    Could you take them to his parents or current residence? So there’s less comeback on you?

    Legally he could then make a claim in small courts unless you can prove that he received the warning.

    I would cover yourself with a signed for letter stating that further to your previous letter the time is up. After seven days the items will be disposed of.

    My house is council property it’s only in my name. He has deliberately left his things here as a way of thinking he can come and please whenever it suits him. I know he has awknowledged my email but he will ignore me. He stopped paying maintenance ( he only paid for two months and have had to contact CMS to let them know he has stopped paying) and hasn’t bothered to see the children I don’t want to talk to him as he is very abusive. I just want his things gone so I can have space for the children’s things and move on without the constant reminder he could pop back at any time.

    He has left bags of clothes, shoes and tools thing is I couldn’t tell you what decade he bought them a lot of it has never been worn with labels on and they have cluttered my house for years I would nag him to get rid of them but he never did. When I just given birth to my first daughter his sister delivered bags of his stuff to my house that had been sat in her shed for years I was fuming I had to buy a shed to put it in as my house was only small

    In that case my original advice applies. You could get taken to small claims court so give him a final reminder. Even saying it will be outside your house until X o’clock in seven days time. Or drop to his parents or sister!

    I had an ex who left a lot of stuff at my house and refused to move it. It included a lot of hobby equipment and I finally solved it by emailing him to say I had found a buyer for his kit, they were coming on the following Friday to pick the stuff up and he had until then to move it from my shed where I had left it, or it would be sold.

    It worked a treat.  It was gone the following day.

    Could you try that?
