Following up:
No response yet to my email.
I just called and left a voicemail. (Call would've happened first-thing if it hadn't been after midnight last night.)
I forwarded my email to the landlady to my downstairs neighbor, whose email address I had from a previous group email the landlady sent to all of us without BCCing people. :P


And phone call came back while I was typing this.

She apparently had hired someone to clean out the buildings - in two weeks, before the close date of the sale. Wires got crossed somewhere and he came by yesterday. Not only did he willy-nilly clear things out, he had tossed a bunch of stuff out on the street such that my landlady was called by the fire department yesterday evening and fined a bunch of money for the garbage on the sidewalk.

She will be trying to find out if our things (assuming some stuff of my neighbor's is missing as well) exist in a recoverable form, and if not, is totally willing to reimburse given an itemized list.

Phew. Still, ARGH. If my bike had been in the hallway rather than under my butt, would it be gone, too? I'm glad I didn't move my space heater or vacuum cleaner down there yet. And what trash-removal guy takes away a perfectly good set of movable shelving but NOT three broken standing fans? ...so, it seems I'm still pissed off. But progress made.

Yeesh. Well, at least she's being cool about reimbursing you, and hopefully getting reimbursed herself by the guy who "cleaned" the house.

I'm just glad that it doesn't have to be your landlord who was the asshole here.

Poor everybody! Well, everybody except that guy who showed up and did a shoddy job and made the landlady liable for the damage he did to her tenants and to her relationship with the city.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that your stuff gets returned in good condition.

Now I'm really feeling for my landlady, because the reason she was selling the building was that her mom got sick and put in the hospital and she needed liquid money pretty fast. Now having to deal with this! :(

Oh, man, that stinks all around. :(

I hope they find your stuff.

I am really sorry you had to go through that! That sounds like at best, a pretty significant inconvenience, and at worst, a pretty jarring violation of your living space.

It sounds like your landlady is being reasonable it though! Or at least, as reasonable as she can be under the circumstances.
