If an ex-girlfriend has left her motorcycle on my property and 6 months ago she said that she was coming to get it but never did, can I take it?
Question Details: On 05/14 she texted me and said she would come and get her motorcycle, then again on 05/31. She never came and got it. Then on 08/20, I texted her and told her to come get her motorcycle, and then again on 10/25. The motorcycle is still here. I have to move out of my house in less than 2 weeks. Can I legally take possession of the motorcycle since it has been well over 90 days since she stated that she would come get it? If so, what will I need to do to have the motorcycle in my name?
No, someone's failure to remove or pick-up their belongings on timely basis or when promised from your property does NOT give you possession or ownership of it. There is no legal basis by which you can take ownership. If you are moving out anyway, leave it behind for the next owner or occupant to deal with--it's not your problem.
