: My previous landlord changed the locks after we moved our furniture from the apartment but before we had completely moved out. This occurred five days before the end of my lease.

: Am I entitled to five days' worth of rent being refunded to me?


If NYC, read Illegal Lockout on the homepage of Tenant.Net. Then read about Small Claims Court in Housing Court Decisions. You just might be able to win the 5 days rent plus treble damages. Send a demand letter to the landlord first. PS: did s/he return your whole security deposit plus interest?
