1. Dear Snotter, a landlord has no right in law to sell the tenant's goods or possessions. It does not matter if there is rent outstanding, the landlord still has no right to sell the tenant's possessions or goods. Accordingly, you can sue him for the return of the possessions which he sold on you. I would advise you to get yourself a solicitor and to formally write to the landlord and seek the return of your possessions or compensation in place of them.
2. Ultimately, you may have to sue him for the goods or possessions or compensation instead of them. Accordingly, you should speak with the solicitor at the outset about suing the landlord because this is the recommended course of action if he does not compensate you for having taken your things.
