Your stored furniture has “serial numbers?” Interesting. You should immediately file a claim in the estate of your deceased friend (assuming an estate has been opened). I suggest that you immediately contact an Iowa attorney who handles civil litigation to discuss your options.

Find a way to pay the $300 immediately. By allowing you to pay partial payments your landlord will have a difficult time explaining why he stopped doing it--right after agreeing to do the general assistance thing.
