  1. I am going to go to the Police and report all of this. But only after it's safe to do so. As at the moment I've been told that I'm going to be done in if I don't do what they say and that "You have a car don't you!" Which I know exactly what they mean. If I go to the Police before I am out and safe or I don't do as they say I'm going to get it and no one will be able to prove a thing! I know what the Police will do. They will go round it will be denied by smiling faces and kind words about how they are no threat and then I will get set upon.
  2. Today's events. 8 O'Clock this morning the Landlords nephew knocked on the door and shouted, "If you don't open up I'm coming in!" I'm beyond arguing about the trespass thing because they just don't care and I was on my way to answering the door anyway. As soon as I opened the door I got a face full of verbal. "Where my f******g money!, Where's my money! Your making my look like a t**t! Give me my f*****g money!" etc..etc.. I said "Look I had all this last night. I don't have the money right now" etc.. The jist of the rest of the discussion if you can call it that is the nephew swearing at me and then telling me that his brother was going to do me in. I asked why if he didn't like the proposal made to the letting agent to repay the arrears, he didn't serve notice instead of threatening me and making false claims about eviction orders? He told me that I have until "the end of the weekend" to get out and that "My brother wants to do you in! If you are still here after the weekend I can't guarantee what's going to happen to you!" He then told me that he wasn't threatening me! Yeah right!!! He told me that he could go to the courts but it would take too long and if I wasn't out by the end of the weekend he couldn't guarantee my safety. I was pretty shocked to say the least and said you can't expect me to go that quickly I've nowhere to go. He didn't care and left. I've not gone to the Police because I'm too worried about what the pair of these psychos will do. If I do he can quite easily torch my car and no one will be able to prove anything. I just said I'll get out and I've started boxing everything up. I've gone and got a lock up that I can't afford to be honest but I have to and I will have to sleep in my car. Then to top it all the most amzingly crazy thing!!! I read my post and I have a letter from the County Court. It is a General Form of Judgment or Order. Addressed to me it says: Before DISTRICT JUDGE etc.... Upon reading the court file IT IS ORDERED THAT 1. Dismissed. 2. The claimant has not given notice as required by S.21 Housing Act 1988. This is dated the 5th Sept which is when the Landlords nephews suddenly blew up at me. So they went to court without service notice and tried to blind side me with the Judge who thankfully has Dismissed it completely! That's why they are threatening me.
  3. It does help and thank you for the reply. But I'm pretty disturbed right now and I'm thinking that I can't risk having all my possessions thrown into the street on Friday and I've nowhere to go anyway. I'm going to the Police first thing in the morning. I know that I have serious arrears for the rent but I've also been 100% up front about that with the letting agent and have been told that if I pay I can stay. Because before now I've had a total of 6 years good history with the letting agent through my renting property with them. They even told me that I was a good client! Now the letting agent don't seem bothered and have just said well it's gone legal and it's the Landlords family that are making threats. I've have absolutely no communication from the courts or any solicitors and have not been given any date by which to move out. I've not been asked to go to court. And I don't understand. If my promise to make good the arrears wasn't acceptable and I would understand that why haven't they or the letting agent given me a date to leave by? It makes no sense. I'm just getting threats instead and am being bullied. I don't want to be somewhere where I'm not wanted so I would have gone earlier if this was not agreeable to them. I'm seriously worried about Friday now as their is no way that I can find somewhere else and move out in that time. How can they have obtained an eviction order without letting me go to court to discuss it? and if they have got one why did they not show it to me? None of it makes sense.
  4. Thanks. I am self employed so doubt that I can get financial help. Anyway things have taken another nasty turn. I wrote to the letting agent about the landlords threats and harassment of my girlfriend. Today my girlfriend called be to say that she got in and the flat was unlocked and the lights on with a note on the stairs. The note said; "We will be back!" Nothing else. (The note was written using one of my post it notes on my desk.) The landlords 2 nephews then walked in and told her that they had an eviction order and that if we weren't out by Friday 6pm they would throw our belongings out onto the street. I got back and found one of the nephews waiting for me in his car. I asked him what he was doing and he stood over me shouting at me; "Where's my money! Where's my money! Why haven't you paid me! I want my money! Answer me! Why aren't you answering me!" Because I couldn't get a word in and I was shocked and pretty intimidated. I asked him why he was threatening me and being aggressive and told him to calm down. I asked him if he wasn't prepared to allow me to try to settle the arrears and stay then why didn't the landlord serve notice? or go to court? I also asked him why he thought he could just go into the flat. He just started shouting at me again and said, "Do you want this to get nasty!" All the time standing over me toe to toe so to speak. If I took a step backward he just thrust himself towards doing the hard man bit. He didn't have anything from the courts and he eventually drove off sticking his finger up at me. My Girlfriend is still in pieces. What the hell do I do now. Call the Police?
  5. Thanks for the reply. I'm not bothered about being kicked out as the situation is such that I can't bear being there any longer as soon as I can escape I will. What does worry me is that he will evict me and basically not give me any time now to find somewhere else to live. How long do I have if he goes to court and gets a eviction order? 2 days, 2 weeks or 2 months?
  6. Sorry to wade in with a new thread as a newbie but I need help. I have been living in my Flat for 3 years now and I have always paid the rent. Recently I've got into severe cash flow issues and fell behind with the rent. A Section 28 notice was served I managed to catch up again and then fell behind again to the point that I am now 4 months in arrears due to ill heath and subsequent lack of income. The Landlord is aware of the situation as is the letting agent and I have promised to make good on arrears payments as soon as I can. Obviously another Section 28 notice was served but I was told that if i cleared the arrears I could stay. Since then things have got much worse. My agreement as I understand it is that the letting agent are responsible for all communication regarding the tenancy. Despite this the Landlord continually and persistently has harassed me for months even when I wasn't in arrears. He regularly enters the flat, without a care in the world. On two occasions he has entered whilst I was naked and my girlfriend has had to hide in the bathroom naked and hold the door shut whilst I tried to make him leave. I have hand delivered letters of complaint to the letting agent about this unacceptable behaviour but to no avail. They simply don't want to know! The Landlord does not have a good grasp of English so conversations are pointless really as they end up with him shouting at me in a foreign language and me trying to tell him in English that he can't just walk in when he feels like it. He has confronted my Girlfriend on several occasions and intimidated her in my absence, despite the fact that she is not a signatory on the tenancy agreement and I have asked the Landlord on 3 separate occasions and once in writing to the letting agent insisting that the Landlord stop harassing her. It's almost like a game to him. Today he had a go at my Girlfriend in the street as she was leaving for work the only words that she could understand were that he was changing the locks on the Flat. I understand this to be illegal without him serving notice or going to court first but I have had no communication from anyone regarding this solicitors, letting agent or otherwise prior to this. I contacted the letting agent about the Landlords threat and they said nothing more than the Landlord is taking legal action. They didn't want to know about anything else. Where do I stand? Surely the Landlord can't change the locks without court action. His harassment is now beyond a joke and if he wasn't prepared to allow me time to clear the arrears then why has he not served 2 months notice? My Girlfriend is a nervous wreak today and I just want to get out. But I need time to do so which I won't have if the Landlord changes the locks and forces me out. What do I do if his does do this? I've read these forums a lot in the last three weeks and I know much more about what is what but I am still screwed at the minute and any advice is appreciated. Who do I deal with the letting agent or the Landlord?
