When your personal property is damaged due to your landlord's actions, you may be able to sue your landlord to recover money. Generally, this requires proving that the damage was caused because your landlord had a duty to maintain something and failed to live up to that duty, causing damage to your property. In most cases, you will sue your landlord for property damage in small claims court; however, if the damages are significant, you may need to hire an attorney.
