I've just has a quasi / semi violent confrontation with my ex private landlord!
He's tracked me down and arrived here mob handed (shifty accomplice recording the conversation with a smart phone) to recover money for.....wait for it......a bedroom carpet!
He states that he has to come serve "legal papers" which are ...wait for it....is a High Court Judgement, a Statutory Demand, Bankruptcy Notice?
Nope! an invoice for a bedroom carpet!
Hand written on one of those books you buy in Rymans. "To Replace Bed" scrawled on it. (Even that is defective,There was no bed as it was unfurnished).
And I've two weeks to pay or he'll "come down on me hard."
Oh and I've been "served" a £60 solicitors search fee. (I didn't leave a forwarding address as I didn't owe money, or didn't think I did).
Needless to say the deposit was fully recovered under the DPS, and the naffing bit of shitty bedroom carpet was covered under the original inventory, and I'm now annoyed that I am having to type letters stating this!!!
BTL landlords are total scum, should not be in business, and ought to be regulated into the ground.
They make me laugh as they are such pathetic scum. The go round buying up properties, creating BTL empires and then spend their lives whining about stains on carpets!!!
Mods move to Rental sub forum, when I've had a drink and calmed down a bit.
Just to add the carpet was dirty, when I took possession, as was the rest of the property, as this was even referred to in the inventory. He couldn't even be arsed to get flat properly valeted.
Oh Lordy, WTF do these people come from
