Rutherfordton, NC asked in Landlord - Tenant for North Carolina

Q: Tenant lawyer needed

Told roommate I was moving out in 10 days, because of the hostile living conditions created by himself and one other roommate. I refused to stay there in those 10 days following because of how intimidating, negative, and all around abusive behavior directed towards me. I am sure it was all for the purpose of making me move out on my own will. I did not feel welcome in my own home. As collateral, storage, and assurance i would be back I gave him $150. He verbally agreed. 10 days later I arrive to find all my personal property was outside piled up on a trailer hitch for 2.5 days. He never informed me or contacted me saying he was gonna do this. I have only gone through about one third of my things. So far the damages, and missing property totals about $350. That is without the $150 i still have not recieved back.
