Did you sign a lease that obligated you to pay rent for a period of time that extended past the date on which you moved out? I suspect that there was a lease, and it went through July 2018. If so, the fact that you notified the landlord of your intention to move probably makes no difference.
One cannot determine in the abstract whether that’s sufficient. I would want to look at the whole document and entire transaction. One example of a phrase that would clarify that it runs with the land is “the easement runs with the land”.

There was no storm, the tree was dying and neglected by the neighbor, causing it to snap and fall on my daughters car, completely destroying her sunroof and back window. Can we sue the neighbor for the damages in small claims court? We have lots of pictures and videos.
The neighbor's potential liability is for negligence, and if he or she should have been aware of the issue, that strengthens the claim. Did you inform the neighbor, prior to the tree fall, that the tree was a hazard?
Never ever once did he allow his client to view the contract he he signed and approved not once and he had no authority, nor did he a power of attorney to do anything on his client's behalf without clients knowledge
This is a question of "apparent authority" on the part of the attorney, as an agent of the client. Under that doctrine, the contract might be enforceable. Whether it is enforceable will depend upon the specific facts. It is possible that it is enforceable. That does not, however,...Read more »

We would need to see the trust agreement to determine whether the property reverts to the grantor(s), or whether title vests in the beneficiaries. If the trust is still revocable (because the grantor(s) are alive, the grantors could revoke the trust and own the property as they choose. There is...Read more »
No. There are no facts tgat yiu have provided that would support the general contractor’s holding onto your equipment. I would want to know more about the situation in order to evaluate the possibility that the general contractor has a justification for its actions.
