- Should I be a prick and would it be legal?
Do you know what happened to the cable?
Normal people ask politely, especially when you’ve otherwise been a perfect tenant.
Just don’t pay him, tell him why, walk away.
Not worth anymore energy.
Just to make sure he doesn’t chase me for it, I was going to drop in the HMO thing. In what way should I word it, so that it isn’t blackmail?Posted 3 years agokimbersSubscriber

No, it’s going back, I was mostly joking. Took it accidentally with all my cables.
Here’s part of the text
If you dont post it bk 2 me I will **** make u come down to london and give it 2 me
I’m mildly amused by it and feel like winding him up some more now. I don’t know why someone would do that, I’ve always been of the opinion that you never know if you’re talking to an axe murdering psycopath, so I try to be polite to people at all times.Posted 3 years agoRscottMember
Ton if you’ve got one of these for a couple of pence I’ll buy it and even pay postage, and send you a beer.Posted 3 years agounknownSubscriber
I presume you were happy enough to move in knowing he didn’t have an HMO? He’s in the wrong about that clearly but it would be massively dickish to make a fuss about that at this stage. So in answer to the first of your questions I fear that ship has already sailed…Posted 3 years ago
I just got a long, rambling, threatening text message out of the blue from my current live in landlord about a missing HDMI cable. (I have moved out though, but I’m still paying for a few more weeks rent as per contract).
Now said moron doesn’t have an HMO license and is in clear violation of this. Should I a) Inform him of this and kindly ask him forgo my final 2 weeks of rent. (Is this blackmail?) Or B) Pay him, inform the local council, go round with an HMO officer and then sue him into the ground to the point that he loses the house?
There’s a small part of me that is uneasy ethically about it, but the rest of me would be laughing manically all the way to hell if it did go to court and I did actually get all my rent back off him.Posted 3 years agofervouredimageMember
Post him back his cable. Smile, safe in the knowledge that he’s obviously quite a tragic character to be so upset over a cable. Live your life without the hassle and undoubted upset and anxiety that going through a spiteful lawsuit will cause just so you can feel satisfied that you got your own back.Posted 3 years ago
The rents due tomorrow, he just sent a text to my missus saying that if it wasn’t paid he’d come round to the house and take it off her. Even though he doesn’t know where we now live.
He’s goading me into ruining his life! I might bumble down to the police station and file a formal harassment charge for the icing on the cake.Posted 3 years agohexhamstuMember
At first I thought you were being a bell end. BUT threatening behaviour like that winds me up, so I’d say **** him over BUT depends if he is all talk or actually a psycho. If I was a psycho and it was your fault I lost my house, I’d probably wear your face as a mask and your testicles and earrings and just drive round london for a couple of hours.Posted 3 years agotomdSubscriber
Post it back, but put it in a big envelope with a normal stamp 😈
11pence excess postage + £1 handling fee for him to get it back.
On a more serious note, you both sound like fannies. Him for threatening you and you for thinking you can take someone to the supreme court to sue them for mild distress.Posted 3 years ago
