Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you or the information and your question. Although you were in violation of the contract by having your things in the house after your possession period, the new homeowner and agent were wrongful in forceably removing your things. They had a couple of legal options. One was to call the police and see if they could supervise the removal of your property, and the other was to file a petition with the court to evict you. In other words, they could not use self help even though you were holding over in breach of the contract.
Therefore, you can file suit in small claims court for any actual damages to your personal property and you could, if you choose, call the police if they will not allow you to recover the remaining property. The police might not assist, but it is worth a try. Otherwise, you either hire an attorney to contact them or file suit for the value of those items they will not let you retrieve in addition to any damaged items.
Please feel free to ask for clarification if needed. If none is needed, then if you could take a moment to leave a positive rating in the box above, I will receive credit for assisting you today. Thank you
