interference with goods
I'm new on here so please be nice !
My question is this:
how would i sue ex landlord in tort interference with goods?
After leaving the property on correct date (almost 4 months ago)following s21, we left a couple of items in the property and told landlord about them. he said he would be in touch as to when we could collect. A few days later landlord said "you can have items back when i recieve arrears" (£125). The full deposit amount is in dispute with DPS.
I now know he is breaking the law holding my possesions in lieu of monies owed.
At first i was told by landlord via txt message that he sold items to help with "the large hole i left in his pocket", but after i called the police and reported this as theft, they paid him a visit and apparently the txt was to try and "shake me up" to pay the £125 arrears. The fact that he actually has not sold items means it is not a criminal offence but a civil one.
My question is how would i go about taking him to court to have items returned? Value of goods around £300 so would the costs of going to court be worth it? and how much extra damages could i claim against him if i were to sue.
thanks in advance.
