The landlord does not need to follow all of the foreclosure procedures for property covered by the lien that the tenant has abandoned. Property is presumed abandoned if the tenant fails to contact the landlord for at least 30 days and the landlord, in good faith, has no knowledge of any evidence indicating that the tenant does not intend to abandon the property.
If the property has been abandoned, the landlord must give at least 15 days prior notice to the tenant before selling or disposing of the abandoned property. This notice may be sent to the tenant's last known address, by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, signed by the addressee only. If the notice is returned unclaimed, the landlord must publish the notice at least one day in a newspaper in the county where the property is located. The landlord must keep proof of published notice for at least one year.
