How long do you keep a parcel for?

Genuine question.

A parcel arrived at my house a few days ago for the previous owner, who moved out just about a year ago. They're quite pally with our NDN and I wondered if she'd ask for it at some point, or if they'd knock or even contact me on FB. But nothing so far.

How long do I keep it for before trying to return to sender?

NB: a neighbour actually took the parcel in initially and then knocked to give it to us, so we couldn't have sent it back with the postman at the time of delivery.

I'd go to the neighbour who's friendly with them and ask if she can arrange something- either to pass it on to them, or them to collect it.

Does the previous owner know there is a parcel for them - they couldn't have been left a note. Ask the NDN to tell them about the parcel or better still give it to her to pass on since she is pals with them.

I would just return it straight away.

Thanks - I'll whizz it next door first thing.
