Ok, if you were a legal tenant on the property and were currently living there, landlord would have to have filed a formal eviction action to remove you from the property. If he did not do so, landlord is guilty of an unlawful eviction and could be sued for any damages that arise out of his unlawful actions..As part of any suit, you would need to provide proof that you were living there like a copy of the lease, utility bills, rent receipts, mail addressed to you there, etc. Even if the lease is 7 years old, if a new one hadn't been signed, you would still be considered a month to month tenant under the same terms and conditions of the original lease..
Hello again,I noted that you rated my service as poor. Did you have further questions or need clarification on my answer?
can a landord take psetion of a garage when all the utilitys that run the garage or sapported by the house
That would depend on whether the garage was included in any rental agreement. If the tenant had the right to use the entire property, then no, he couldn't take possession of it as that would be a breach of the rental agreement..If the rental agreement didn't include the garage, then the landlord could use it, but the tenant could always turn off the breaker to the garage, as this circuit should be on its own breaker, unless the landlord gave the tenant either money or a discount on the rent for the utility usage..
Please remember to rate my answer. I will gladly continue our discussion until you have gotten the information you need.
If you need further help, just reply to me via the “REPLY” or “CONTINUE CONVERSATION” button.

i was told that if the garge and the house ran as a single unit he could not
Well, if tenant rented the house and garage, then the landlord couldn't take possession of it because the tenant has the right of "exclusive use and possession" of the leased premises..
so i am intittled to loss moneys yes
Do you have a written lease? Did the rental agreement include the garage?
lease was writn before new owner came into play and we had garage threr is no menchin of garage in lrease
Than it will be difficult to prove that it was included. If you feel that you are entitled to damages you should file a suit in small claims court against the landlord for damages. The time to fight the eviction would have been during the eviction. That being said you can also bring a claim for damages against another individual for damages. Get your motel receipts together and the lease and file an action against him.
