What is the amount of the lien?

The amount of the lien cannot exceed the amount of unpaid rent plus reasonable costs incurred in enforcing the lien, not including attorney's fees. If the value of the seized property is more than the amount of the landlord's valid claim, the tenant can assert claims against the landlord for conversion, trespass or repletion.
