    Question Ex-Roommate Won't Pay Money Owed or Collect Property

    My question involves personal property located in the State of: Delaware
    I am the lease holder of an apartment. My fiancÚ lives here and in Jan. So did our then room mate. Both of them were arrested on criminal charges and the room mate was ordered to not return to property by a judge or have contact with co defendant (my fiancÚ)! I gave him 3 opportunities to get his belongings, which he came and got dumb crap, such as clothing, with out paying rent that was due. I now have tried contacting him and his sisters to come and get the stuff if they pay the portion that is owed with no response. I then told them I would sell it only for a "brother in law" to then call me trying to come get it for less money then what is owed! It has been over 30 days since the judge told him and now going on 30 days since I said he could get his belongings and didn't! What do I do? I live in Delaware?

    If the reason he hasn't collected his stuff yet is that you're holding it hostage to try to get rent money out of him, you're going to put yourself in a bad spot if you end up being sued. Let him (or his family) take his stuff. If he owes you money, small claims court awaits.
