    Unlawful eviction - recovery of equipment by peaceable re-entry? (Scotland)

    My commercial landlord of 3 years (Scotland) evicted me by text and changed the locks overnight. We have only a verbal contract, which I understand is as good as written, especially after 1 year.

    I am fully up to date with rent and have done nothing wrong. I have essential work equipment in the building. There were other tools in her car which were recovered with police assistance, but they explained that those in the building will be a civil matter.

    I have no source of income meanwhile, however. May I enter using reasonable force (break a window for example) and recover my property?

    I had a verbal agreement with a tenant, I had to give him 6 months notice to vacate or negotiate a new contract. I would seek advise from a solicitor quick

      That would be breaking and entering (Housebreaking in Scotland, possibly with intent) a criminal offence.
      At the least it would be criminal damage and trespass.
