Hi, thanks for your question. I am a qualified solicitor.
As long as you have a tenancy for house 2, the landlord cannot change the locks until after an eviction notice is executed. He cannot throw away your belongings as this is your property and you will have a right to claim compensation for any belongings thrown away or damaged.
