Not a lot of information in your post, but it seems that the landlord could not have kept the items unless you left them in the property when you moved. Each state has a process where by items left by a tenant are considered abandoned.

Check the law in your state to know where you stand, but be aware that some states allow landlords to charge storage fees for those items if you failed to take them with you when the tenancy ended.

Yes. you need to speak with legal counsel in your state. Was the property considered "abandoned"? Were you still residing there when ownership transferred?

Not knowing all the details, sounds like you need to speak to a real estate lawyer or a landlord/tenant service?
Good luck,

How did this happen?  Were you evicted by the seller?  Also do you have proof of ownership for the items in question?
