My question involves personal property located in the State of: New Jersey.
Let me put this out there. I was in love and dumb. Moved in with a guy and we were only together a few months when we signed a lease together. I moved out April 1st. The landlord is fully aware and is writing a letter stating that I am not liable for whatever happens after that date, and I requested her to have it notarized. Now, the story is very deep so I'll cut to the chase. I filed a police report against him for fraud and identity theft (and no not because of the furniture). I asked the officer if I had a bank statement showing I purchased a couch and chaise, was it mine to take back. The officer stated not unless I had a receipt. I went to the location of where the furniture was purchased. Requested a duplicate receipt be printed. It states, paid by me with my mastercard and I have the bank statement as well. My question is- is that mine to take back?
