I live above my old shop and the T I didnít renew the lease due to antisocial behaviour. When he left the property was damaged and he knocked me for 3 months rent which was back in Nov.

March last year when my solicitor informed him I wouldnít renew his current 5 year lease the anti social behaviour got bad but since he left his brother left a car on my property blocking some of my parking spaces. Monday the car was gone and one of my neighbours parked in the spaces so the T couldnít park there again and the former T friends saw this and said if he doesnít move they will come back and smash the cars up. So later that night they did smash them up my vehicles which was on cctv along with other things they did but itís always the T and his brother sending people to do there dirty work. Police said they canít do a lot.

Itís been suggested to me too speak to the T local priest to intervene as things are bad. Iím out of ideas and not sure what to do. I could visit these individuals but it wonít end well. Any other ideas?

Well,that's a first on here,asking if a priest might be able to sort out a problem tenant.But hey,he could be more useful than the useless police.I would also strongly suggest that you contact your local town councilor or M.P..They will be able to put some pressure on the police to act.If that fails I would get onto the local paper.It is quite disgraceful that the police are not doing what they are paid to do.Which police force is this?

More luck then judgement but the new tenant I found out was in the MET for 20 years and they have got us both a meeting with our local MP as itís effecting there business and know itís not my fault. I would like to go too the local paper but a few people have warned me against it. I found out a couple years after T moved in he was involved with Travellers and his brother got done in 2015 for fraud and modern day slavery. They own all the local shops a mile up the road from me and I have a feeling they want my property. Not nice individuals

God,it sounds like the Wild West there. Hope the M.P.does his or her job,you are paying your taxes to have a bit of law and order.

Meeting with the MP seemed to go well. He said there is an ongoing investigation with this family as they are terrorising a lot of people and into dodgy stuff. Said they have a meeting with the police chief in a few weeks and will talk to him about the lack of action. He was shocked at the recording my wife had of the T making threats at her and the police ignoring it

That sounds hopeful.The police are very sensitive right now,as public trust is understandably very low.Always bear the press in mind too,if you don't get results.For now we still live in a free society where lawless thugs should not be free to damage the fabric of society,and act above the law.
