I recently started to rent out a room in my home. At first, the person seemed reasonable, but sadly I came home from work one night and found she was smoking cannabis at the entrance to my property. I share this main entrance with two other properties in my block.
I spoke to her and said this was unacceptable and went against her lodgers obligations in the agreement we had. “Not to use the property for any illegal and immoral activity”. She apologised and said she will move away from the property.
Later that evening I saw that she had an amount of drugs in her possession. I didn’t challenge her and was going to seek legal advice and I was deeply concerned. She had been here two weeks and I already had a sinking feeling.
then proceeded to tell me about her links to the polish mafia and she knew some really serious violent people.
I found that she had been coughing up flem and spitting in my cups.
I challenged her about this and things just went from bad to worse.
After consulting with the metropolitan police I changed the locks and evicted her as her behaviour was unacceptable. She has since got a solicitor and is trying to take me to small claims court and sue me for 5000 quid.
So I’m left now having to write a defence as to why I don’t feel like I have done anything wrong.
