Customer Question

I lived in Eastchester ny 10709 in an illegal apt. for 7 years, a little over 3 years have passed and my ex landlord will not give me my patio furniture which cost me roughly $20,000.00
At the time he asked me to leave abruptly because he said the building dept was coming to see the house and the apt was illegal. So we left the furniture behind since we had to move and find an apt. quickly.
Is it to late to sue him?
