Sometimes Tenants leave belongings in a property after they vacate. What is the best course of action? It depends where you live. There are different rules in various places.
In California if a Tenant leaves anything less valuable than $700 you may pitch it. In San Diego it is common for Tenants to leave items behind because they are being deployed with the military and must depart quickly. Tenants in San Diego also take pride in purchasing items specifically for smaller spaces such the condos in downtown San Diego. They frequently leave these pieces behind to feed the Kharma account.
No matter where you live please make an effort to get in touch with the Tenant and give him an opportunity to pick up any forgotten items. That is good for your Kharma too.
