It would be smart to contact someone experienced in landlord tenant law to get a clear answer on your particular situation. They would need to take a look at your lease. I do not practice in this area but know several who do.

This is not a criminal law question. It is a landlord-tenant law question.
Nothing was filed in Probate. No executor nor representative was appointed. As far as I can tell, no one had a legal right to even enter the deceased person's apartment, let alone remove all property.

There are very specific laws regarding personal property of a tenant, how to handle it, etc. It is not necessarily a simple answer capable of being answered on a message board. You might consider meeting with an attorney to discuss this process in detail to ensure you do things the correct way.

The landlord may enter for any legitimate business purpose, which includes showing the property to a potential buyer, after making a good faith effort to give you notice.
3 of my roommates lack discipline and manners and they talk with loud voice even they are sitting 2 feet from each other which I don't understand. They sound to me like bunch of villagers where they talk loud, laugh in the middle of the night ignoring other people are trying to sleep.

You do not have legal recourse in this situation. You will have to move or get new roommates.
I mailed in 2 months notice to vacate but landlord says they did not receive it. I believe it's due to wrong address. Once issue was brought to my attention, I mailed in a copy of the notice 15 days before lease ends. They are saying that I must go month to month for a month

The outcome... Read more »
