Homedale, ID asked in Collections for Idaho

Q: Can I put a lean on or claim an abandoned late model pickup that has been left on my property for 6 months?

Lease holder left truck here during bankruptcy which was complete about 6 months ago. He and I have each contacted the owner (Chrysler corp) several times and requested it be picked up. Each time they say yes but fail to collect it. I would like to be paid for storing the truck or put a claim against it.

A: I would try contacting the local Chrysler/Dodge dealership and see what instructions they give you and follow that. I don't know of any law in Idaho, giving you the right to place a lien on personal property which you gave permission to store a pickup on.
