What to do if I rented a furnished house but the alndlord sold everything?

I have a lease and the house was left to me furnished and all items are listed on the lease. The landlord has just notified me that he has sold all the items in the house. Is this a breach of the lease and, if so, what can I do?

It may in fact be a breach of the lease agreement but it is difficult to give any counsel with out seeing the lease.  Take the lease and the notice to some one to review and let you know your options.  Good luck.
