Hello, I live in Mo. I have had problems with my ex-landlord. i moved into her home, signed a years lease, the place was in need of fixing. so i had the electric outlets repaired, and un-wallpapered and painted the entire house. i also gave her $160 to repair the roof. the basement flooded with sewer and she did pay for that, but said the next time it happened i would have to pay because "you can't flush toilet paper in the toilet"! I paid for the screens to be replaced also. Keep in mind the house came in this condition. i was adamant with paying rent until i lost my tattooing job, after six months of living there. well i was late with one month of rent and she came to my house while i was out and put a padlock on my door! without warning! leaving my 3 yr old and i homeless for the night.she wouldn't talk to me or let me retrieve my belongings. since then she has sold my things and her boyfriend said she had planned on moving in the house since i had fixed it up?!? do i have a good enough case to go to court? also is there any way i could be reimbursed for my belongings? i lost mine and my son's life in that house!
