landlord waited until I came with moving van, 2 days later filed papers to take me to civil court, on day of civil court, filed eviction papers as well, we moved over 100 miles away so it took a week after initial moving van to come back for other things, standing in house packing landlord came pounding on door and then walked in before I even got to the door. asked when we would be gone and left got a text 2 days later that he "took possession" of the house and moved the rest of my things to the garage, when we went to eviction court I expected something different papers said I would be able to tell my side of the case and that is far from what happened. judges "assistant" informed me that the judge will talk to us after me and landlord come to an "agreement" we were told to go out in hall and come back when we reached an agreement landlord said he would give me to the end of week to get my things. I reluctantly agreed, I went to get up my things they were broken, in garbage bags with regular garbage, thrown about and destroyed, I was so devastated I did not even take my things
If the LL violated the terms of your agreement (and it is on record) go back to court and address judge (contempt motion.) Small claims (conciliation) court may also be appropriate.
