I'm certainly no lawyer, but I think you need a second opinion. Seems to me
the landlord had an obligation to at least attempt to contact the rightful
owners of the stuff he sold; and if you can show that he made no such
effort, you would have recourse against him for negligence.
More likely the tort of conversion, but you'd have to read the applicable
statute to see what the requirements were.
Nemo dat quod non habet and all that.
