Over a year ago I let a (then) friend store some goods (equipment from the cafe he close down) in my shed to save him from paying storage elsewhere. We have since fallen out and he owes me money (which I am pursuing through the Small Claims Tribunal) and I want his stuff gone from my property, as I need the shed space now. What is the correct procedure to get the abandoned property removed? He does not respond to texts or calls. Should I send a letter via registered mail, giving him a certain amount of time to remove his property? And saying that if he does not remove his things they will be disposed of and I will sue him to recover costs? The goods are not worth much as they are things like old microwaves, plates and glasses and I don't want the hassle of selling them. Would it be legal to just advertise them free on Gumtree or ebay to anyone who wants them, after giving the owner adequate warning? What to do? Thank you.
