Sure, people can be forgetful - it is human nature. However, how someone could forget to take their illegal weaponary and 'adult toys' with them is unbeknownst to me. 

Property managers commented the unusual things their tenants have left behind at a property on the Residential Property Manager Facebook page.

Quote marksA vintage baseball bat - it looked like Babe Ruth had used it!quote marks– Elevate Property Group 

Quote marks A set of four, new alloy wheels with unused tyres left in a garagequote marks– Guy Innes

Quote marksA coffin - empty thankfully! But very oddquote marks– Deanne Hansom 

Quote marksA cat, locked in a cage in the cupboard!! Very sadquote marks– Larissa Kloots 

Quote marksDrug parafernalia, adult magazines, stolen bank cards and warrants from the police...quote marks– Kirston Buscombe

Quote marksSo many unusual items but the one that sticks in my mind is a box of illegal knives, a suitcase of used sex toys of all descriptions (very educational for the office) and a unit full of stolen goods. There was also a handwritten notebook with step-by-step instructions on how to do body piercing!quote marks– Amanda Tate

Quote marksI managed a property in Kings Cross. Tenant (who was a stripper) left her sex toys in there and a bag of coins. She assured me they were not hers. Must have been the previous tenant she told me...quote marks– Felice Cotroneo

Quote marksA tattoo gun!quote marks– Yes Lets Property Management

Quote marksA bed, two laptops, portable hard drives, bank card and loads of designer clothes, humidifier, full kitchen set - all in the one house! All they did was sell the fridge and washing machine, they left everything elsequote marks– Erin Ryan

Quote marksSexy knickersquote marks– Jacqui Hales

Quote marksLadies’ ‘chicken fillets’. Yes, the ones you put inside a bra or wear with clear strapsquote marks – Deborah Daken
