    Ugh, with all his moves my guess is he's on a slippery slope, not only with you, and can't make good on anything he owes or needs to fix. If he's posting a picture of your place on his facebook page, include a link in the comments to your youtube video. Or complain to Facebook about the image? I don't know. I'm so sorry you are having this to deal with. You try to create something special with someone else's help, and it backfires. Here in the US each state has a consumer's advocacy department, or Better Business Bureau, that you can file reports with to at least alert other consumers, but perhaps to get help going after a bad business. Do you have anything like that there?

    I did it all through the trading standards branch of the citizens advice , so it has all been done legally and above board , this is why it has taken so long , because there are set rules of how many days you give someone before the next stage and so on .... I is frustrating because it is dangerous and without an address for him , no one can do anything ... I even thought of ringing the police haha I mean it is not a criminal case I know that , but I am getting desperate .

    I learned this lesson the hard way. Evicted a non paying tenant and she trashed the house, broke windows and punched holes in the walls.

    Went to court. Judgment in our favor. Vindicated, right!?

    Hardly. It was up to us to chase her down and get the monthly payments mandated by the court.

    Joke was on us. If she wouldn't pay rent to begin why we were na´ve to think she'd pay the monthly restitution?

    Besides he's pretty much shown you where his soft spot is by the veiled threat. I say go for it.

    ohhh darling that's disgusting and there are a lot of shows on right now in the uk highlighting this very thing ..the poor landlords like you , spending a fortune to repair the damage to then chase them to then get a pittance every month . The more I am writing and talking about it the more I am getting myself geared up to go as public as I can to get him brought to justice .
