They denied entry for nearly three months. In the meantime there was extensive water damage as we were locked out and unable to maintain the property. We are working on negotiations to settle the matter. Are we entitled to any punitive damages for the extended time lapse due to their lying about causing the circumstances and the amount of time and stress it has caused myself and my husband. We were readying to put the property up for sale when this brreak-in happened. Now we are dealing with repairs and compensation to pay for these damages. This happened on March 6 and it is now nearly August.
