Hiya we moved out at the end of May and we have been having loads of problems with the landlord. It all started when I told them we weren’t willing to buy the house off them.
Anyway there was no inventory. I have a message from the ‘LL that says he will do one after we have decorated, but it never happened.
In our tenancy agreement there is a clause that says if we do not decorate to their standard then we would have to pay the first months rent. Anyway this date was September 2015. There have been numerous visits since then and nothing has been said about the decoration until we told them we were not buying the property.
We have reported problems such as leaks and sent pictures of the damage this has caused over 1 year ago and he is now blaming us of doing this.
Since we have left he has been contacting us non stop wirh insults etc. We have had the police sent it him and have now got a harassment order placed against him.
He has refused to go through the dps from the day we moved out -pur deposit is protected in a insurance scheme. We have now been informed that he will not use the adr and we will have to go through court to get it back.
He has sent threatening messages to us in emails and Facebook’s messages. All the contact he has sent to us we have never responded.
We also never attended the check out and left the keys with the neighbour who he visits regularly as we knew it would end up very badly with someone getting arrested.
Anyway would all this go against him, especially his behaviour etc if we took this to court? Our deposit was nearly 1k so it’s quite a lot of money.
Also would there be a way to go to court without him being there due to the harassment order?
