Exactly, no excuse for witholding any of the deposit or dumping any iof the tenants belongings anytime before the tenants were due to move out.

I wouldn't be happy to settle for anything other than a return of the deposit in full and additional payment for any belongings removed before the end of the day the tenant was due to have moved out.

If the LL doesn't play ball I'd play hardball and consider making a complaint to the Gardaí for theft and criminal damage relating to the belongings dumped.

Would that be theft?

well technically yes, if she includes the skip in the list, then this is a counter claim we can make but i think she will remove the skip now from the list as its full of other things that were her choice to replace (have photos).

we met her, no agreement but i gave her until this evening to come back with a revised list.

If your ll entered without permission its trespassing as notice to enter a tenants room has to be agreed
If they had no permission entered and removed your belongings then its an eviction
can only read between the lines here

its no risk for the tenant to take a case. where as the landlord would never see the colour of any case win

I think most people accept that the landlord isn't going to get anything- regardless of what level of award they are given, how much damage the tenant caused- or how long the period of no rent ended up being. The only real reason for a landlord to proceed with a case- if is they are sufficiently aggrieved and want a case registered against a tenant to warn future landlords to exercise due caution......... It is a bit nutty that there is nothing a landlord can do to register a just claim against a tenant- but its also nutty that tenants lodge claims months or even years after the event- there should be a statute of limitations- and a perceived penalty on both errant landlords and tenants- neither side should be allowed to wriggle off the hook.
