I broke up with my ex this Sunday. I asked immediately after breaking up for my things in his car back. I said you can put them in my mail box but i really need my house key back. He said “I’m sorry and I’ll drop them off” two days later he texted me and said “can i come see you can we have sex?” And i said “where is my stuff you said you were bringing? And he didn’t respond

I even told him he could drop them in my mailbox or doorstep

TLR; Why isn’t he bringing my stuff to me. Break up consisted off no arguing or anything bad.

Threaten with legal implications if he doesn't give it back. Possessions of other things will be less important but him having a house key poses a risk.

I'd recommend changing the locks ASAP, it sounds like he's trying to exert control over you and i'd be worried about him or anyone else turning up at your place in the middle of the night, especially if he still feels entitled to sex from you.

Then go to the police about getting your belongings back, i think they can send an escort with you to go get them or it would be a good start for legal proceedings to obtain them.

Edit: Even if you get the key back there's no guarantee he won't have made copies. People can do bad things when angry or if he gets drunk etc

Change locks ASAP, preferably today. Do not let yourself be held hostage by him having a key.

Call out an emergency locksmith asap and change all the locks that he has keys for.
You can risk him using the keys to obtain access to your home whenever he feels like it.

Depending on the nature of the relationship it might be a tad alarmist to summons an emergency locksmith and worry about being held hostage. Could just be a matter of giving him a bit of time to return the key or changing the lock yourself if he is delaying on this

What type of lock is it. Some locks you can buy just the barrel from b&q for a few quid and it is ridiculously easy to change yourself with a screwdriver.

Once I had a similar situation. I had to come back to take my stuff but she changed locks and wasn't responding to my calls. You know, I applied to locksmith services to unlock the door and take my stuff away. She was shocked but what did I suppose to do? Funny situation but everything okay.
