Landlord and Ex Partner Holding My Possessions Hostage

Reply to the comment left by "Andrea Peacock" at "13/09/2014 - 10:36":

Hi Andrea, thanks for your sound and helpful advice. The watch is long gone and i have already done all of the things you mention, with the exception of the job, which is impossible without an address, which i have as of yesterday. Like the watch, the other things i don't miss for what they are (clothes, furniture etc) but i personally don't see why people should be entitled to just steal my things which are the culmination of my efforts so far in my life, i am 56. And it would seem so far that i have no form of redress. I am not one of life's spongers and have worked hard and honestly all of my life. It seems to me one of today's problems in life that some people just have a huge sense of entitlement. I promise you i am not one of them and i am not trying to evade my liabilities with regard to my previous rent arrears. I understand the pain of non paying tenants as much as anyone. I simply want back what is mine. Thanks again. Have a great weekend.

Best Regards

Landlord and Ex Partner Holding My Possessions Hostage

Thank you all so much for your concern and comments so far. The latest news is that as of today 13 September i have managed to secure a privately rented property and housing benefit and JSA as from next week. Of course the difficulty i now have is that i have nothing to put in the house, but it will be far better than sleeping in the car. Personally i can't understand why the police are unwilling to help as to me it would seem a straightforward case of theft by both parties (me ex and ex landlord) and maybe even of trying to extort money from me given that they are demanding payment for the return of my own goods, which in the case of clothes, tools and computer etc, even court bailiffs would not be allowed to seize. Anyway, next week i will visit my local CAB to see what advice they can offer. Many thanks again everyone, i wish you all a great weekend.

Best Regards

Landlords in Wales must sign up for licence to let homes

Once again, the legislation is in favour of the tenant. If they are going to place yet another onerous burden on us (no doubt at great expense to us) why not even things up a little by abolishing the ridiculous Local Housing Allowance where the Housing Benefit is paid directly to the tenant until they accrue eight weeks arrears. Which is nothing more than a licence for them to steal the first eight weeks rent.... Read More
