Hello. My name is***** am an attorney. I will review your question. I may need to clarify facts first. I will answer & we can discuss issues.
Leah: Terribly sorry for your loss. Presuming you had a rental lease, a landlord (or the leasor) would only have a right to move your property for safety reasons without your permission. Even so, the owner of the premises still would still need to show some attempt of notice to you. Also, there is a question as to whether moving the property to an unsafe area would be appropriate (e.g., was there a place to move it on land if possible or some where safer in the water). Whether or not other property was moved or protected in different ways or whether all was treated the same way is also a question of fact. So, there could be a possible claim against the lessee or the person who moved the property without permission if the movement of the property was not handled with care and was reasonable. We can discuss more if you would like to do so.
