That would be my question too. Has there been an actual eviction? It's not the end all thing, but if there has been an eviction, and the 30 days has expired, you should be good to go. BUT, I'll let you know, personal property is a tricky thing. Document everything. Pictures, pictures, pictures. And not just to turn in to get paid. Good pictures of everything you remove. And if you are to store them for 30 days, document that too.
If you aren't familiar with you local laws on vehicle removal, read up. In Alabama we have to have title to the vehicle before we can dispose of it. Getting title to an abandoned vehicle isn't very hard, but there are steps. One is a title lien search. Where you find out if there is a unsatisfied loan on the vehicle. Sometimes the loan company wants the car if they can't get the money. Sometimes they don't. But you have to notify them by certified mail that you have the car in storage and what it will cost to get the car out of storage (storage fees). I once towed a car (2009 Nissan Altima) Great shape. Notified the loan company. They came to get it 44 days after I got it. $25 per day storage. Fortunately I have a big driveway. cha-ching.
The bank has every right to move their stuff off the property - if the foreclosure has completed. But, they also must make an effort to allow the owners time to claim their stuff.
