Landlord accuses of not paying rent. Poland.

Hi everybody,

I recieved an email from my LL accusing me of not having paid the rent for january. He gave me 3 days to pay and threatened me to kick me out.

The problem is, that I paid in time (as I always have). I sent him all the bank documents certifying that the transaction had been executed with success. And asked him kindly to check again or ask his bank where the money ended up.

I checked all the bank coordinates again and even called my bank just to be sure that it was not my fault.

I tried to call him for 2 days, to clear everything, but he never picks the phone. Finally, he replied to my email, saying that he didn't understand what I was saying (which is a straight out lie to say the least, since he speaks english very well) and threatened me again.

What should I do? Should I give-in and pay again? What do I risk and how real are his threats?

Thank you in advance to anybody who would give me a kind answer.

What should I do?

Tell him that you're processing your annual tax returns and can you please have receipts for each of the payments you have made to him which have been stamped by his tax office so you can provide them to your tax office. Then an hour later tell him that it's OK, you've spoken to your accountant again and it seems that copies of the transfer orders showing you send money to his account will be good enough for the tax office.

Should I give-in and pay again? What do I risk and how real are his threats?

You most certainly should not pay again. You risk nothing, given that you can prove you've been paying the rent. His treats are meaningless. But, given that you now know your landlord is a liar and a cheat, you should also find somewhere else to live (now is a pretty good time to be looking).

That would be supremely stupid. Best find another place to live ASAP.

He needs a court order or baliff to kick you out - not something that he can organise in 3 days.

Under any circumstances. If you paid by transfer and have online banking, screenshot the relevant bit and forward it to him. Ask a friend to translate your email into Polish, and tell him/her to word it very formally.

you should also find somewhere else to live (now is a pretty good time to be looking).

Good advice - he's obviously dodgy as hell and trying to trick you.

And by the way be careful of extra charges, especially when the landlord or landlady is not happy with you for the slightest things like for example using an electric kettle. They try to compound you with extra charges especially when they know you are leaving, and therefore try to suck out as much money from you as possible before you go. So, they try to find even the slightest/small things to complain about and then ask you to pay. Serious. It happened to me in Warsaw. One word to describe them is : greed.
