To my understanding anything can be used as evidence unless a specific law prohibits it. When is negotiating inadmissible as evidence?
My (ex)landlord demanded I move out immediately. I told him I will do so as soon as I have a place to move, but he must prorate my rent if I move out before the end of the month. He agreed but never returned money for the prorated rent. Would these emails not be considered evidence for some reason?
He also has some furniture that belongs to me. At first he (pretend) acted confused and thought I was referring to furniture that was his. In the initial stages of legal proceeding he denied my claim for the furniture and said my "description of events was not accurate". The court (that I'm using) requires a negotiation period were anything said is inadmissible as evidence, but I think that's provided that communication is done through their form.
The landlord has now contacted me by email saying I am free to pickup my furniture. Can this be used as evidence that he has admitted to having it? I had rented a truck for moving so this doesn't really appeal to me.
