Dear Sir/Madam

My mother was hospitalised for 21 days and I was given the rights and access by her to see to her property and animals. She is 78 and renting in a Lifestyle & Retirement village. Management was informed via email and verbally of the arrangement.  I was evicted after 2 weeks, could not take any of my personal belongings and the house keys forcibly demanded from me by management. The door locks were replaced by management asper the Landlord’s instruction. In hospital a nurse gave my mom a message that there was a “Breach of security”.

What legal action can we take? 

Regards
