My question involves personal property located in the State of: Georgia.
Here is the background on the story: My sister in law was allowed to move into the house that my wife and I rent last year on the condition she was to pay $150 per month towards expenses/utilities until she got on her feet again. Two months later she moved halfway across the country with everything she could pack into her car to move in with a guy. She left behind several pieces of furniture and other items in our garage (which we'd converted into a living space) and during her time there she failed to pay us anything and left just as I pressured her to pay up or get out.
Now, it is 8 months later and she's sent us an email stating she is selling "her" furniture and that we have to show it to people who are contacting her via the Internet. Additionally, I had never agreed to keep her things long term and she's stated that she cannot afford to move it all out to where she now lives.
The question is am I obligated to "show" the furniture in question and open my house to strangers? Or, am I able to hold any claim to the property in question as she's left it and is unable to reclaim it? Or, is there a middle ground of selling it on her behalf and sending her the proceeds?
