Abandonment is the voluntary relinquishment of all rights, title, or claim to property that rightfully belongs to the owner of the property. Stocks, bonds or mutual funds held in a brokerage account where the owner can’t be located or contacted is an example of abandonment. The laws of escheat may cause the property to be taken control by the state.
