A: Hello. Always take a look at your written lease as that governs a lien Aunt agreement, and what each party can do. Usually there would be a clause in that agreement discussing abandonment of property. It seems as if three years is a long time to wait to get items and therefore I would consider them abandoned. No backlash should happen to the owner, as long as he had made provisions for her to come get those things before those three years had last. The whole scenario would change if she had been locked out during the time she was able to get in and get her items.
