If a delinquent customer tells you they have urns with human ashes     Can you still sell at auction legally

    Do not auction the urns unless you want to lose your business!  I actually had this experience.  I would STRONGLY suggest you allow the delinquent customer access to his unit and have him remove the remains.  Also, have him sign something that says he removed any and all remains from his unit.

    Had this come up after a unit was auctioned - buyer brought back the urns.  After months of calls, etc finally found the original funeral home and they came out and took the urns.  Never had any contact from owner of the unit. The state even had an urn in their unclaimed property that they had to hold onto forever, and did not want any more.
