A SEX therapist is devastated after being kicked out of the home she shares with her 50 pets.
The self-proclaimed Lady Pea Ramshaw remains at odds with the wealthy Cator family over the rent of the Old House in Ranworth, Norfolk.
Lady Pea reportedly allowed her pigs to “completely wreck” the gardens of the £3,500 property.
The 54-year-old, whose real name is Patricia, was reportedly only permitted to keep two dogs on site but brought the pigs along with a third puppy, two horses, eight ducks and 20 sheep.
Landlady Jane Cator, a Norfolk second-in-command, insists the animal menagerie breached their lease and damaged the 18th-century property.
She said Lady Pea had “zero respect” for the Grade II listed home and had to go.
The clash follows a series of court battles between the tenant and the Cator family, who have been trying for months to get them to vacate the house.
In the most recent legal twist, Lady Pea and members of the Cator family came before Norfolk County Court when the tenant attempted to block a writ of tenure that required them to vacate the property.
At the brief hearing, Lady Pea indicated that she had taken refuge by renting the house when trying to flee domestic violence – but the house was said to have been unoccupied.
She said she paid the Cators a year’s rent in advance but found the property without central heating, full of mold and “freezing cold”.
She says the Cator family have agreed to a full repayment but talks about the terms of her departure have collapsed.
At a previous hearing, the Cator family persuaded a judge to issue an injunction against them.
However, the final hearing was scheduled after Lady Pea moved to stay the order.
District Judge Russell dismissed the case, saying the court had not received the necessary documentation to support the appeal.
He added that she had “no chance of success.”
But Lady Pea insists she filed the paperwork and the court “lost” her.
The judge said: “I have no evidence that you made an application – you say court staff are reviewing the case, but I have seen no record of any grounds for appeal.”
“There are no records of this and I can only rely on the information provided by the court.”
“I reject your appeal as unsubstantiated and without prospect of success.”
The judge also denied a request by the Cators for an injunction against Lady Pea.
Cators representative Byroni Kleopa said Lady Pea submitted 400-page testimony via email at a previous court hearing on the day of the hearing.
She said, “We’ve had applications, applications, applications and every one of them failed.”
“The tenant has not paid rent in over a year and has £41,000 in arrears that are increasing every day.”
However, Lady Pea dismissed her statement as “lies”.
The bizarre feud began in November 2021 when Lady Pea agreed to rent the historic home from the Cator family.
Since talks broke down over her confinement of the estate, the acrimonious dispute has spilled over into courtrooms across the region, with multiple hearings presided over by the court and district judge.
During one of these conversations, Lady Pea claimed that Jane Cator, the mother of her landlord Sam, was spying on her from a nearby church tower.
However, the Cators allege that Lady Pea breached the terms of her lease when she arrived with a variety of animals, including four dogs, several sheep, horses, ducks and geese.
Lady Pea is desperate to leave the estate and the Cators want the same result.
But at the heart of the standoff is Lady Pea’s request for a refund of more than £40,000 in rent and £13,000 in utility bills she accumulated while staying at the home.
The Cator family declined to comment on the case.
