Re: Can my housemate forbid a friend from visiting me?

Would the actual complaint against the visiting friend have a bearing here?

i.e. if it's just a hissy fit with no real objection the attempt to ban the other person wouldn't be justified. On the other hand, if the other girl had done something really bad, just below the level at which you'd go to the police . . .maybe it's justified?

Obviously the best answer is always to talk these things through.

She did absolutely nothing wrong apart from me leaving 2 dirty cups in the sink for 5 or 10 minutes. Which incidentally also prompted another threatening e-mail from my housemate. Not to me of course, but to my friend

Not necessarily ... a woman scorned can come out with a lot worse stuff than this, often with very little justification. (I am not speaking from experience, of course ...)

Re: Can my housemate forbid a friend from visiting me?

Anyway, sorry to spoil your fun boys, but back on topic.....

Housemate has now sent my friend 3 e-mails and 5 sms on this matter. Anyone of the article numbers I should quote for Stalking and Harassment?

Sorry .
Will be vewy, vewy good.

Anyway, can't you throw this back at her? Tell her to stop harassing your friend, or you'll go to the police (or your friend should). Seems as if you're resigned to leaving anyway, so it won't be burning any bridges.

I still sthink they should simply calm down, sit together and talk it through over a nice cup or two...

Yes, but I don't want her to think she's been victorious. I'm a woman and therefore must have the last word. Hmmm but then again so is she
