Landlord trashed my belongings

Posted by Ben Kehler on February 08, 1999 at 07:36:01:

What can I do?
My landlord requested I move after my girlfriend and I parted. We were both on the lease, which was renewed in Sept.'98 for one year. She moved out Nov.1st. The lease was H.U.D. assisted. The landlord gave verbal warning on Nov.1st and then accepted rent payment from me Nov.15th and agreed to allow me to stay provided I pay $50.00 more per month begining Dec.1st, I refused. The landlord changed the locks on the doors and kept most of my personal belongings. I contacted the landlord to retrieve my things and the landlord replied "you'd better have your stuff out by Feb.1st", I told him it was not possible for me to get everything out by that date.He then stated that my belongings were going to be moved to the basement and were to be accessible via an unlocked door. I went there yesterday,they were gone! I called the landlord and he said he had given me enough time,and said he had taken all of my things to the dump!! I have a list of missing items valued at approx. $6500.00.
I do apologize for the length of this message but I am truly distressed and have no idea what to do.
