After i complained to the landlord about apartment issues and told him i called code enforcement and the building inspector because of his neglect , he locked my basement storage ( where i keep my stuff ) and where my electrical circuit breakers are . what are the penalties in rode island ? 3 times rent plus lawyer fees ? illegal lockout ? i believe he is trying to hide the code violations ( electrical and heating ) and the fact that the one ( old boiler ) and 3 fuse boxes run 6 apartments in this building that is listed as a 3 family home with the city ! Illegal multiple dwelling . what are my rights and compensation for this ?
