Ex tenant returns asking for fixtures, blinds etc. by Ken (NY) on February 27, 2012 @21:24

                              
I moved into an apartment my uncle owns and it was previously rented to another tenant in the same house who moved into another apartment in the house. I've been in this apartment for more than 6 months. The previous tenant is now demanding that I return blinds from the windows and light fixtures, and even a dead bolt she claims to have purchased while living in the apartment. They were left here when I moved in and until now she never told me she wanted them. Am I allowed to say no?

You need to tell her to contact the landlord so he can determine what needs to be done according to lease that they signed at that time. Tell her you are not getting in the middle of it and to please no longer contact you regarding this matter as you are just a tenant.

FYI, in some states, items that are attached to the rental property become part of the residence, and prior or current tenants do not own them any longer. Since all these items would be mounted to walls, doors and ceilings, technically these now belong to the landlord. Tell her to go fly a kite, and contact the LL.

Like others said tell her to contact LL. If she wanted them so badly she should have taken them with her. No way is she getting a deadbolt back and most likely nothing attached to the walls. Stay out of it and let the LL deal with it.
