How long does something have to be in my possession until legally it can be claimed as mine?

Question Details:

I broke up with my ex back about 6 months ago. They moved out. They did not even try and make an attempt to contact me until about 2 months ago. I gave them a mutually agreed upon date to come and get it all and they did not, nor did they even contact me regarding why they missed it or anything.
