Can someone refuse to give back my belongings? 2 Answers as of August 24, 2017

I’ve been living at a friend’s house for more than 5 years. We had a dis agreement and I left for a few days. She has since changed locks and won’t let me get any of my things. Do I have any legal standing to get my belongings?

Yes, she has committed the civil wrong of conversion. She probably should have given you adequate notice of your having to leave and may be also liable for unlawful eviction.
