Should I give it back to her?

The lady that lived In my home before I moved in left some items behind. She then came to my door six months later asking for me to hand them over. Some of these items are valuable some are not. Are they still hers or not? I do not know her nor have I ever spoke to her prior to that day.

If you have them you should return them... sometimes when you move you just kinda lose stuff... It's not really good to profit off another's misfortune.

In my opinion, you should give the items back to her. This is because they still belong to her as no written agreement was given to show any transfer transaction. Though she left the items, if she happens to go to court, she would be the one to win the case.

It's hard for me to believe that you are even debating this. She came back for the items and you basically said "I will think about it". What's there to think about? They are hers, there's no mistaking it. Now if you are waiting for verification that these, in fact, are her belongings, then that's understandable, contact the land lord, and if there is none then you know they are hers. 90 days the property is legally yours if she did not formally try to contact you. But even if they're legally yours, the RIGHT thing to do is give them back. Just plain to see that doing the right thing doesn't come naturally to some people. Good luck.

If you have never met her before, how do you know it is the prior resident? I would think some proof to that fact would be in order before you start handing over stuff - if that is what you decide to do.

I'm surprised that you would even ask.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
What if it was your mother, older and somewhat forgetful maybe had been under stress after the loss of a loved one or a cherished pet or friend. You don't need anyone but yourself to answer this question "are you a good person at heart or do you not have a mirror in the house?"

It wasn't a rude question, why be rude in your answer? You don't know if I'm heartless

Honesty and integrity is never embarrassed in the face of the reality of truth.
If my answer seems rude I apologize as I do hope you will if the lady comes back to beg you again for what is rightfully her belongings. That was rather more rude was it not?

You shouldn't even have to ask. It's not yours. Who knows why they were left there. Maybe there was a family emergency and they had to move in a hurry. Do unto others..

She left them - you stored them - she should have took them with her when she vacated the property previously .

beachgirl13- Have you ever heard of Karma. I think sometimes we are put into situations to test what we are made of. In this test your on thin ice because you had to even ask. Yes give it to the owner. Not knowing the situation should not even factor into it. The right thing to do is obvious. if you have become attached to an item offer to purchase it.
