Wrongful Interferance with Goods
A tenant who has vacated a property, particularly in a hurry, will sometimes leave items behind.
The landlord becomes, in law, the voluntary bailee of these items and needs to make sure they are safe. If a landlord disposes of those items, they could expose themselves to a claim for wrongful interference with goods.
We can advise landlords on the process to follow where a tenant has left items behind on vacating a property.
