I agree with everyone else on this one - let it go. My aunty was a heroin addict and she was not of sound mind at all, they never are. She broke into our house on numerous occasions (thankfully we were never home) and was violent towards her elderly mother (my grandmother) who was dying of cancer; there are no boundaries for a lot of addicts and the risks are just not worth $2000. While it might seem like a lot of money, nothing is more important than you're families safety x

I get what your all saying but by giving back the fridge it leaves DD and I without one and I am about to be evicted due to not being able to afford this place on my own anymore. I was hoping by selling the the bedroom set I may be able to stop DD and I living on the streets.
You can't just keep it and sell it - it isn't yours to do with as you please. Doing so can put you in an even worse situation with criminal charges (could, not would).
So unless she agrees, it's still her stuff and you have no right withholding it, much less selling it.
I really feel for you.
You have done a nice thing and been ripped off for it.
But I agree with the others. I would be concerned with making these people angry.
I would get the fridge moved and have them pick it up from a different location.
I understand it leaves you without a fridge, but I think these people sound unpredictable and slightly dangerous, if pushed.
Could you speak to legal aid on the legalities of it all?
By the sounds of her, she wouldn't persue legal action over it, would she?
I get what everyone's saying about them breaking in again but they also know I have witnesses from the first time and can go to the police already to have them charged. Instead I'm doing the intervention order.
And exactly, she doesn't have a legal leg to stand on and by law under the abandoned goods act I am entitled to sell things to recover costs, this has been confirmed by my real estate, only difference here is there was no lease, if they did this in a property they rented everything would of been sold by now.
And as for having no fridge, again, I'm studying and living off single parent pension, I would not be able to afford a new fridge until tax time and I have already asked around and no one has one I could even borrow until then so I would be screwed.
