Returning items after use

Q: If someone sent me some eats and I did not return the plate They asked me for it and I told them I will look for it and forgot about it I had every intention of finding and returning it however I kept forgetting about it. I never once said that I will not return it. Do they have a right to enter my house when I am not home and take it?

A: You should give them the right to take it.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
