Paul, I am sorry to hear of the strife you seem to be going through. I doubt very much if you can have any recourse against the landlord - he has the right to rent his property to whom he wishes, with or without references. The only course of action I can suggest is what you have already done - the police and environmental services. Should the tenant threaten you in any way, you must inform the police. If the landlord has served notice for the tenancy to cease in January then I suspect that unless a criminal prosecution is broght against the tenant then you may well have to wait until then. If the tenant is guilty then the landlord should be able to evict on the grounds that the tenant is a criminal. I am a little surprised that the police have not done a little more!
