What do I do if someone will not return property that belongs to me?

If someone will not return property that belongs to you, I think the first thing to do is to make a written demand for a return of the property.

That way you’ve covered your bases if you have to go to court to file a lawsuit to recover possession of the property.

There are legal theories available under Florida law to recover possession of property that’s being wrongfully detained by another. Some of those serious, such as civil theft may allow you to recover your attorney’s fees incurred in that process.
