I owed my landlord back rent when I moved out and left items there which I was planning on moving which he knew I wanted back because it was expensive items and sentimental ones as well so we made several agreements to meet but things came up so he moved my things to his storage unit (this way in May) and said we could meet up to pay him a portion and get back my belongings and I told him I had the money here recently but he said he already threw out my things in the roll off a couple of weeks ago (which I do not know if it is entirely true because my things I had in there were nice and felt like he kept for his wife) he never told me he was going to do this and I have read in some articles that he has to send me a list of the things he has and a statement in the mail saying to pay or he will do something with my items but he did not and also I heard that he can not do anything with my possessions anyway for 60 days. Can I do anything or possibly file for a warrant to look through his storage unit to see if he still has my possessions since I am agreeing to pay him the back rent in full and believe my items are worth more than what I owed on back rent?
