How long do I have keep personal property before it is considered to be abandoned?

Question Details: I allowed my ex to leave her property in my rental house instead of keeping it in storage. I was paying for the storage and decided I did not wish to continue paying it. I told my ex I brought the property to the house I am renting. We initially agreed that by 08/06 she would get her belongings or I would put it in storage. She stated she could not do it then financially and she could afford the storage bill. I then agreed to extend the agreement to 0/15. By the 15th she and I agreed that she would come and get her belongings from my house. However, now she states that she needs more time and she will get the belongs whenever she can and there is nothing I can do about it. What is my legal remedy if she breaks the agreement for 09/15.
