A: You need to discuss all these issues with a lawyer. This question and answer format does not give us the opportunity to review all your evidence, or lack thereof, and then give you clear advice on what you might do.

Furthermore, there is insufficient information about what the result of the trial was. You may have the right to appeal, but there are very strict timelines which must be met if that is what you need to do; however, you did not provide enough information which shows what happened in the end.

You need to immediately talk to a lawyer who handles UD claims for tenants. It might already be too late for you, because you didn't explain the timeline of the events.

Talk to a lawyer right away.
