I was hoping someone could give me some advice.
I moved into a new rented home two months ago and my life is being made hell on earth because of the previous tenant. He moved out leaving thousands of pounds owing to various loan/credit card companies.
Everyday without fail, several letters are arriving. I was just posting them back, but they keep coming. I have had a guy at the door also looking for the previous tenant and when I told him he doesn't live here anymore, he practically called me a liar. I tried to explain that no forwarding address was left, but he was really rude and obnoxious. He even asked me for ID to prove I wasn't the guy he was looking for, I flatly refused and closed the door on him.
To make matters worse, when I moved in, I was given the same telephone number so the phone rings day and night. I will get this changed, but I just don't need the aggravation
I know I should'nt have, but I opened a few of the letters to see what was going on and they are quite nasty. There was a letter from court saying a judgement had been against the ex-tenant
I suppose I really need to know what to do about this. Do I need to prove to these people that he doesn't live here anymore? I know nothing can happen to me, but I don't want to deal with this, its very stressful and its getting me down.
