A friend was evicted by the court. However, the person failed to vacate the single occupancy room even past the eviction date due to financial constraint. When the person went to the store one day, the lock was changed. The person still had property in the room. The landlord then stole my friend's property that was locked in when the lock was changed. Does the fact that my friend remain in the room past eviction date entitle the landlord to steal my friend's property? If not, how long should the landlord have stored my friend's property? What action can my friend bring in court for the stolen property?
