My question involves personal property located in the State of: FL
My husband and I have a sign in our front yard that says "affordable computer repair" and we fix computers for people for cheap. We get maybe 2 customers a week. It's not really a business, more like a hobby. A gentleman brought us a laptop last June with no operating system and various other issues and since there was no windows key and it was going to cost him several hundred dollars to fix (with us only charging $30-50 labor), he decided it wasn't worth fixing. He said he would come get the laptop on 2 occasions in June, but never did. We called him in July and he again said he would come get it, but did not. Between July and September we called and left 3 messages for him to call us back so we can bring him the laptop, but he never called back. He finally called back in late Septemeber/early October and said he would be home and to bring him the laptop. So my husband went to his house and knocked on the door. There were lights on in the house, but no one answered. He could hear people talking. After a few more more knocks, they turned the lights off in the house. My husband called and could hear the phone ringing in the house and no one answered the phone or door. So my husband left. When he got home he left another message for them to get the laptop when they have the chance. It is now March of the following year and this laptop is still at our house. How long before we legally own this laptop so we can scrap it for parts and get it out of here.
