I am suing my landlord and he keeps emailing things I never said

I have name changed and I have to be extremely brief considering this is going to court and who knows who uses this site.

He firstly had his secretary email me when I gave my pre legal email to say if the legal proceedings were about fire doors, something which I complained about months ago and is not serious enough to take to court. I said:
Sorry but I am not discussing this anymore I have outlined what my complaint is and I have been ignored for 12 months and treated like less of a human because of my......
my solicitor will be in touch

I do feel she was trying to make me bite back and I did a little, as in i gave away detail.

He has then emailed my solitor to say:
"Ms smith is hard to contact, her number doesnt work and her email address doesnt go through. She has said she will not do mediation and has had issues with several neighbours"

None of this is true.
The landlord does not have my number due to him giving it away to another tenant. (This is a long story I do not wish to add extra info on )
My email address works fine
My letters get to me fine
I did contact mediation and took photos on my phone of the call log however no answer. They have not emailed me. They wrote to me and on the day I phoned them over 10 times which as above I have photos of log.
I have not said I will not do mediation I actually was recording the phone call he claimed I said this in.
I have not had issues with several neighbours I had issues with one neighbour which is why I want to break the contract.

Then he said "this is just an update please contact me if you have any questions"

My solicitor didnt even write to him or ask for an update he choose to send that BS so he can show it in court and claim I am the unreasonable person rather than deal with the issue.

He is obviously trying to get me to bite. Should I just ignore it?
I have already sent the forms for county court.

Thank you for advice.

Speak to your solicitor, cut all direct contact with landlord.
Explain to your solicitor that the landlord is making things up and if they need clarification then they, your solicitors, can email you and you'll reply asap.

Okay thank you. It is really pissing me off I write a really snotty email but decided not to send it and just wait for advice

Don't respond. That's what your solicitor is for.

OP I too am one w/ flame mail instincts; but follow advice above and NC the landlord.

.. you sound like your organised as have a solicitor already... Goodluck, and don't worry.
