Hi, any help on this matter would be appreciated. I live in a house with several others, we pay individually for our rooms. This morning I received this text from my landlord: “There is tobacco and stuff left in the communal lounge and unless someone comes and sorts it out I will throw anything that is left in the communal areas away, including the full bottle of absolute vodka in the lounge.” Within an hour of receiving this message, the landlord had removed the items from the house, despite them belonging to tenants. Is he allowed to do this? Thanks
