A TENANT said her landlord accidentally threw away all of her belongings after evicting her roommate and blamed her for the mix-up.
TikToker Ivy who goes by the pseudonym Ivynicholeee social media App, documented the moment she came home on May 8 to find the locks on her apartment had been changed.
When Ivy finally gained access to her apartment after help from the front desk, she entered an empty apartment.
“When she opened my door, I immediately panicked,” she explains in the three-piece suit Tick tock Post Office.
“All my things were completely gone. In my head and hers, I asked myself, ‘Was I robbed?’ But the key to my door didn’t work.
Ivy said her roommate had vacated her room after being evicted the day before and handed the apartment keys over to the landlord.

After the front desk clerk called the manager, he explained how they had cleaned out someone’s belongings on the morning of May 8th.
But instead of her roommate’s things, it was Ivy’s things that were thrown away.
“They said my roommate was supposed to be in room B and I was supposed to be in room A,” Ivy explained in the video.
She further explains that the keys she was given when she first moved in only worked for Room B, assuming it was her room.
“So he [general manager] “I came all the way here telling me what happened and how they took all my stuff and he didn’t explain exactly where they went,” she said.
“So I’m assuming they threw all my stuff away,” Ivy added.
The distraught tenant explained that the manager had asked her to write down all the things thrown away and that he would refund her money.
“Everything I came up with cost about $19,000,” Ivy explains.
When she handed the piece of paper to the housing authority, they only offered her $2,000 to $3,000.
“How is this going to cover everything I’ve lost?” she emphasized in the video.
“How is this going to give me a chance to start over?”
From then on, they apparently increase the offer to a maximum of $5,000.
In a follow-up video, Ivy explained how she told her situation to a relative, who would contact her landlord to try to resolve her issue.
However, she stressed that the emotional damage has already been done.
“I am very grateful for everything that comes my way,” she said.
“But if there is something [taken] from me, and I’m not treated with respect, it just doesn’t suit me.”
It’s unclear if Ivy ever received a refund for his belongings.
