What happens if your landlord illegally locks you out:
If your landlord forcibly removes you from your rental unit or lock your doors and windows so you can’t get in, call the police for help. If you show the police that you are renting the unit, they will tell your landlord to let you stay in the unit until he legally evicts you. If your landlord refuses to let you in, the police may arrest him for trespassing.
