Abandonment of Property

If a renter has sign a eviction letter to promise to get out by a certain date.The date has passed and they are gone for 2 weeks or more no rent and money owed and some property left on premises, door unlock, windows unlock, oven on and damages left..Can I get them for abandonment of the property..Can I also store the property with  out removing it from the premises and hold it until they pay me for back rent and damages..Is this legal in Tennessee? Can they legally come back 3 weeks later and get the sheriff to get their stuff or do they have to go to court with me. Because now weeks later they want their stuff and they left it on the property..I am holding it until they pay me...Just checking is this legal ? It is still on the property stored...Thanks Gail
