What can I do if my landlord accessed my home without my permission? Posted on July 29, 2011

I live in an apartment in Portland, ME. Yesterday I came home to find that one or more people had been in my apartment and removed two gas heaters (not mine, the landlord's property) without my fore knowledge or permission. The lease states that I must be given 24 hours notice either orally or in writing (except in an emergency)...I was given neither and had I known they were coming I would have made sure I was present. My question is, since my landlord did not notify me that he was going to authorize access to my home by a third party, do I have a case for the intrusion on my privacy?
