Liability for Handling Abandoned Property


What is the duty of care?

The liability of handling abandoned property is not a black and white situation. Some situations are more or less risky than others. The riskier situations are when you are handling with self-help because you could face criminal as well as civil liability. Throwing away abandoned property can cause problems because what you consider to be trash could be the tenant’s treasure. This video reviews risky and safer options for dealing with abandoned property; as well as dealing with bailments. Our speaker also discusses state law survey results on landlord’s treatment of abandoned tenant property.
