Quoting kr.r:" Well I don't know the laws for abandoned property in this state, but if the guitar still legally belonged to the original owner, then I guess suing for having your property sold without your consent."


Someone left it there for 3.5 years. This isn't a month or two.



What state are you looking for information on?

The person did nothing wrong. You left it there for years as she tried having you pick it up. No attorney would ever take your case.

It was borrowed/abandoned in Kansas.



I just wanted to know what the laws were. I didn't know there was a time frame in which property could become "abandoned." I guess it it's left like that by the original owner, it's free game for whoever has it?

According to Kansas law, yes...it was abandoned and the person was free to do what they wanted with it.

Where did you find the time limit? I'm reading through "Unclaimed Property Rules and Regulations" but haven't found it yet.

58-3935 - on the outside it is 2 years, and that is usually reserved for unclaimed money and property (like land/house)
