I was wondering if you may be able to give me a little advice? I live in California and a roommate of mine moved out in the middle of May. She left some stuff at the house, and after speaking with her several times on the phone as well as text messaging her with replies from her, she still has not come to get the stuff. Do I have to hold the stuff. A little background to my situation follows. My parents own the house, but I am in charge of getting roommates. So I am not technically the landlord because we all pay rent to them. I do want to handle this matter myself though because my roommates and I are the ones that have to put up with her stuff taking up space in the garage. I really appreciate any information you can give me, or if there is anyone else out there that can help I'd appreciate it.
