  • L forced me out (and used services at my expense)

    Hello im new to this forum so hello nice to meet you all.

    I recently forced moved out of a house with some land and building as my ex landlord seemed to think he still could do what ever he like.

    He kept a small barn for himself and wasnt any mention it had full living inside and has used it like a home using all my services and not paid towards them really.Whilst living there he have many visiters and delivers even late at night (11.30 pm) . None of which is stated in the contract only has access to the barn which it clearly wasnt .

    Also we had a drainage problem which raise its ugly head several months into the contract to the point the powers that be got involved as the sewage was going direct into a water course.

    If you was in my shoes what would you have done?

    Dunno really! Is there a specific problem?

    How do you know he was from hell? He might have come from Wapping!

    Welcome to the forum.
    I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

      While I hope you never find yourself in this situation again, if you do there is lots of help available from the local council housing officers, environmental health officers, citizens advice centres, community legal service and of course, forums like this.

      So, what would I have done? I'd have looked for help.

        From your post, I guess the following

        You have moved into a P, which you now left.
        But you didn't like the LL living in a seperate building(The Barn), which has a right of way though your P. And was in the contract.
        When you moved in, you never asked whats in the barn and who living there.
        And also you said "not paid towards them really", so he did pay something, but maybe now you would like more.

        You also said
        "Whilst living there he have many visiters and delivers even late at night (11.30 pm) ". If It's his home, you could have done the same, and I guess you would have told him to mind his own business if he complained about you.

        How did he cause the "drainage problem", and if sewage got into water course the authorises needed to get involved.

        So I guess as you said. "Maybe wrong"
        "I recently forced moved out", you are trying to go for
        "Breach of Quite Enjoyment"
        "Haressment" and
        "Illlegal eviction"

        To either get the LL to pay more for the utilities, "Maybe he should", return your deposit or for someother reason.

        While you was in the P, who did you complain to(Landlord, local council housing officers, environmental health officers, citizens advice centres, community legal service) , and did you put anything in writting, if not I can't see how it was that much of an issue for you then?

        But from what you currently have put on your post, I can't see how he "the landlord from hell".

        And if I was in your situation,
        1) I would have asked more questions, before I moved in and
        2) Contacted the LL in writing, laying out the issues clearly,
        3) Then contacted the local authority,
        4) Look for another place to live after the fixed term was over, as I doubt you be living there much after this time.
        Disclaimer: What I say is either right or wrong. It may be advisable to check what I say with a solicitor. If he says I am right then I am right, unless he is wrong in which case I am wrong; but if he says I am wrong then I am wrong, unless he is wrong in which case I am right

            Mrbees92

            I live in Northumberland and rent property in Newcastle.

            Durham is the same as everywhere,there are really bad areas as well as good.

            But if your looking at property under 60k, then your likely looking at a housing benefit market.

            With the benefit system the...

            Golip
            Hi all

            A former tenant of mine whom moved out without giving 4 weeks notice as per his contract is threatening legal action over a deposit which I did not protect in time and was returned to him in full once the admin error was realised (my farther usually deals with the paperwork)

            Four months, is more than just technically late, and you seem to have done it in response to the tenant, not because you discovered the mistake yourself, so it culd have gone on for years if tenant hadn't raised the issue.

            Whilst I have no practical experience of such things, I would be...

            The best areas are those areas which will show the greatest house-price increases, best rental returns and lowest voids/damages, over whatever period you are thinking (say 3 years, 5 years, 10 years....).

            Sadly until those 3, 5, 10 years are up NOBODY will KNOW which those areas are. Anything...

            Hi all, We're hoping to rent a property. We have no bad credit, can more than afford it, have a guarantor if needed. It's all going well but the landlord is using openrent and their referencing rentguard. They are asking for bank details, NI number, details of outgoings etc all on top of usual address,...

            That web site simply converts the sort code to a bank branch (from a publically available list) and checks that the bank account number is valid for the sort code, using the check digits embedded in the account number.

            The IBAN number is generated from the other data automatically.

            Hi. I am a mortgage owner in apartments. I have a neighbour who moved in March 2017-since he has moved in there has been nothing but trouble. Loud music in the week and weekends until the early hours. A variety of visitors, rarely the same visitors-we have contacted the police who informed us to contact...

            But almost everything you do will be pointless (unless they extend their activities to the outright criminal).
            We have a system that "cares" (or pretends to care) about tenants in their relationship with landlords, but cares nothing about communal dwellers, leaseholders, upholding of...
