My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Maryland
The tenants in one of my rentals were on a month to month lease. I advised them the lease would end and served them a lease termination notice (30 day notice). At the end of the 30 days, they claimed they were having difficulty finding a new place and asked for a week extension. It was granted. While they did move out, they have not finished moving their possessions and have not given a time frame when their possessions would be gone. They have not offered, nor have we asked for any rent during the period after the termination date of the lease.
My question is, in Maryland, is this now abandoned property, and what are my limitations in moving/disposing of these items? They have left obvious junk like tires, broken yard furniture and the like, and there is a bunch of auto service items (chemicals) jacks, tool box etc in the garage, and household items (lamps, small end tables, boxes of clothes) in the house. There is no furniture, no chairs, beds, dressers and the like.
While I am starting court eviction process, I really don't have to evict them, they are already gone, do I need to evict their stuff as well?
