I have a friend who was asked to leave the apartment she was renting. She departed but left her window unit air conditioner behind. She has heard that any such equipment added to rented property becomes the property of the property owner. Is this true?

Thanks.

This usually does not apply to window AC's as they are designed to remove for winter.
She has already moved out though. Can't hurt to ask her old LL for the AC. Or ask the LL if they want to buy it. Worth a phone call.

She should check her lease agreement if there was anything stated about abandoned personal property. If there was not, she can contact her ex-landlord and ask if she could take it or sell it to ex-landlord.

This does not apply to Window AC because it can be remove easily without any damage to house. Was there any agreement for that, if not? Your friend should call to Home owner to make clear her doubts and possibly get back her AC or cost of it.

What ever the rental agreement says will prevail. As a legal secretary in California (over 20 years) I know that if something is a permanent addition to a structure, that something stays with the unit. Seemingly, since the AC in question is the window variety, the former tenant could contact the LL about retrieving it. Conversely, in California a LL must notify a tenant regarding abandoned property. If said property is estimated to be worth less than $300 the LL can dispose of it at his/her discretion. Those items left behind estimated at $300 or more must have a notice of reclaimation sent to the former tenant, which outlines where/when the item(s) may be reclained. The tenant is liable for any costs of storage associated with the reclaimed items.

If I may be of any assistance to you in this matter, or should you require a Notice to Reclaim Abandoned Property, please send me an email.

Most leases between property owners and tenants will grant the tenant the right  from such things as non functioning central heating and air conditioning units .
