I'm leaving some things (a suitcase and a computer) with a friend of a friend for a month, so I don't really know the person too well.
I have some sketchy feelings about leaving my stuff with them but there isn't really a choice (can't leave it at home and no storage facility nearby, and can't take it with me).
We're going to write a contract, but I'm just curious about what I can really do legally if he claims he never gave me something (like the computer) or I found out something I kept with him ended up damaged.
Is there something in the contract we can formulate so he's held responsible? What if he refuses to pay for theft/damages?
