landlord rented my house while I still had a lease and had paid rent

By admin

I had a years lease on a house.  I had moved my property out of the house as I was not going to be there during the summer.  My lease ends the last day of August.  I have been current with rent and utilities.  I was planning on going back to the house this weekend and doing the last bit of clean up, do a moveout walk thru with landlord and return keys. Low and behold there is someone living in my house!!!  They are using my utilities.  The landlord rented my house right out from under me!  CAN SOMEONE GIVE ME ADVISE ON WHAT TO DO OR WHERE TO TURN!

Thank you.
