My question involves personal property located in the State of: North Carolina
a family member was living with us for a brief period. We had given an expensive gift for Christmas. A few weeks later he got mad due to certain house rules regarding having visitors over and moved out. He left several things when he moved including the gift we gave him. Over 30 days went by until he decided he wanted his few last things, including the gift. I have given everything back except for this gift. I have the receipt where I bought it and the exact move out date that can be confirmed to show he did not request until after 30 days (almost 60 days) after vacancy. I honestly wanted to return the "gift" and get my money back considering I just poured a lot of money into helping this family member (legal fees, living arrangements, utilities, food, etc.). He's filed a report with the police and is trying to get us charged with felony larceny. Can this happen? Do I have to give it back since it's been in my possession without asking for it back for almost 60 days.
If I am required to give it back can I send a notice for storage fee -- I read somewhere that if you're storing personal property for someone after they have vacated you can send a certified letter via mail requiring a storage fee be paid before they can pick up their items?
