I left my partner on friday who I have been living with for 12 weeks.He owes me money(or furniture) and some possessions.I have texts to prove that he owes this money and texts saying he intended to transfer- but he did not.I took with me his clothes, his computer, some camera equipment and bits and bobs.
He has been to the police,and then so did i - I was hoping they would escort us to both swap - but the police have said that this is now a civil matter. (they saw my proof)
I am concerned now in case I may have done the wrong thing - as on googling its says that what i have done is wrong. But the police seemed to think it was not criminal, but domestic.
Can you give me some advice. I did take ALL the clothes that he has in London.He owes me 3,750 plus tiffany jewellery and clothing
Not sure - approximately 2.5- 3K
Thank you .
I just called again, and they said that as he had once refused delivery (they have proof) , it now becomes a civil case.
I reiterated I wanted to meet and swap, but they have actually strongly advised me NOT to approach him or to meet with him without a member of police present.I was beginning to feel a bit bad and wanted to drop some bits off.
They also said that if he turns up at my property I must not open the door and must call for police to attend.
They seemed very adamant. I must say I am surprised, but that is three different shifts that have confirmed this now .
Thank you for your advice though. You can see why I wanted a second opinion.
I don't agree with that at all I'm afraid. It makes no sense at all. If they wanted to prevent a breach of the peace then they could just escort you.
