Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.
Please note that the experts don’t text so there may be a bit of a delay. If you don’t answer back for a while I may not be online when you do but I will never desert you and will check back often. As well, as I am working from home it is possible that I will be interrupted but I will always return back as soon as I can.
I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.
What you can do is send them a letter. In the letter set out the facts and demand that they provide you with compensation for the costs you will incur in replacing the goods by a deadline that you set.
Tell them if they to comply you will commence legal proceedings and then will be seeking interest and your costs.
You can then sue them in Small Claims Court and self-represent. If it gets that far and you find you need some help as you go through the process you can always post on this site again and I can assist you further.
Does that help as a starting point?
Thank you for trusting us to help you here at JustAnswer. I am marking this post as complete. If you would like to ask me more questions please start a new post and if you do if you say “This is only for Debra” I will be sure to give your post top priority
This is only for debra. So what you are saying is that what they did was illegal? Like by law did they have to wait a certain amount of time before they could just throw my stuff away and give it away? Like 30 days or anything like that? I know transitional housing has some laws that may be a bit different from regular houses. And the pic i attached is the only portion that talks about belongings. I sure didnt abandon them cause we kept in contact about my stuff up until the night before they had the dumpster delivered. Then didnt even tell me they did it. But the friday before my worker was emailing my welfare worker about still having my move covered and i found out from a buisness that takes donations that they had called him to offer him my things and he arranged to go look at it. On friday. He admitted to taking my daughters 200$ wagon. Said the girl.under me was helping herself to my things. And the whole time they didnt say anything and continued to try to help me get movers paid to have my stuff removed. Cause the bin came tuesday after that. They refuse to tell me where my stuff that wasnt thrown in the dumpster was donated. So know im left with litterally nothing. What was in the dumpster is all ruined. I had nothing going into shelter. My ex ruined everything i worked my whole life for and said to them they just did the same thing to me as he did. I said to them they have now become my abuser and are no better than him. Like all my daughters stuff. Even her bed. Her new bike. Her toys. Gone. Shes 2. How did they feel doing that. I guess i ultimately wanna just know for sure that what they did was illegal. Regardless of what it sais in the lease there. Thanks again.
