Due to a big big falling out with our son he doesn't want to see or speak to us any more, but he has a lot of his stuff at our house which he won't come and get, he won't give us his new address so we cant deliver it there, so would it be illegal to take it to his place of work, it isn't fly tipping, it's possessions not rubbish.
We don't want to dump it because we would have to pay nor do we want to store it anymore.
Any solution anyone? :-|

After a given time put in writing a date and time and your intensions to dispose (keep a copy) for him to collect and that doesnt happen you can dispose of the responsiblity lies with you should they become damaged or god forbid a fire occurs,he can make a claim aganist you.

Is there another family member where he can pick them up from.?
