Can a landlord hold your possessions until all past due rent is paid?
Question Details: My landlord is a private owner. I was evicted in a verbal form on Tuesday, I was asked to be out of the house on Saturday by 5pm. Most of my belongings are out of the house except for the big pieces that I cannot move. I asked my landlord could I come back on Monday with a truck to move my items. I was told that I could, then quickly called back and told I could not move my furniture until I paid on my rent. I was wondering did I have any other options of getting my furniture and could my last months rent and my security deposit be applied to the remaining balance.
