Thank you.

If you are suing for the value of your belongings in Small Claims court, you cannot seek "punitive damages" Punitive Damages are what you seek when you have been harmed say by the lock out and they are awarded as a punishment. As you asked me here

"...how do I list requesting $ for my x illegally locking me out of the residence?"

However, you can claim your Actual damages. Actual damages are what you are seeking for the value of your belongings. Once the court rules and the judgment is in your favor, he will then need to decide if he wants to return the property undamaged or pay the judgment for the value.

Please let me know here if you have other questions or need clarification. Otherwise a Positive rating ensures i get credit for my time.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
