Advice on what to do with Ex-gf's stuff

    My ex and I broke up almost two years ago now and she left a butt load of stuff at my flat. Clothes, kitchen utensils, books, a printer and other assorted bits and pieces. She now lives ~300miles away.

    She has made no effort to ask for her stuff and she did not respond to my attempt to contact her. The kicker is that I have been holding on to this stuff for almost 2 years now. Obviously it is a bit weird hanging on to stuff like that for this amount of time, however it has been kept in my assigned storage facility so I never have to think about it.

    I am about to move and no longer have assigned storage space, plus there is in excess of 4 large suitcases. I no longer want to look after.

    I have no interest in contacting her, whilst it did not end on a totally sour note, she was completely manipulative and only seemed happy when she was causing drama.

    In summary, my question is morally & legally do I have any requirement to contact her and return stuff to her or should I do what I think I should and donate anything of value to a local charity (one that is important to me) and dispose of the rest?

    Many thanks.

    If that stuff was important to her, she'd have come back for it by now.

    Been 2 years and you tried to contact her about her stuff, I think you're in the clear.

    As far as you're concerned she probably just doesn't care enough to come get it.

    How can you just abandon that much stuff? :lolwut: at least you'll donate it rather than trashing it.

    Take it all down to a local charity shop, I am sure they would be glad to have it.

    If it was anything important she would have come back for it, and if there is any backlash, well, she had 2 years. Not your problem any more
