If the tenant has vacated and left behind items the landlord must keep the items for 18 days. You must also send notice of abandonment of personal property to the last known address. If resident claims the items you can charge for storage costs. If tenant does not claim items and they are less than $300 you can dispose of them...if valued more than $300 they must be sold in public auction.
