Hello,
I am afraid he would not be responsible as such for the theft of your belongings and you should make a claim against your insurers.
Unless you are able to show evidence that he was the cause of the theft.
May I help further?

surely the theft if any were on his property, so therefore his insurance would have to cover this? as our insurance is on the property were we live now. also, wouldn't they question our claim, as the lost or stolen belongings were in his care as I see it?
