A: This doesn't sound like something they should be doing. Did you have any other witnesses? Did they give any kind of explanation at all? Very strand behavior. You should consider consulting with a local attorney to see what options you might have.

A: To properly evaluate any legal question a lawyer needs a thorough summary of the facts. What you have shared is not much. If you are not clear then the lawyer will no doubt be challenged to give an accurate answer.

It is the same as using the adage for using a computer... “JUNK IN, JUNK OUT”.


this is very unusual behavior and is clearly wrong............did you call police? I think police or an atty at the least will be able to get the landlord to clean up HIS/HER mess.

take pix and names of wits.

consider suing in small claims for up to $10k
