A man made an abusive phone call to a letting agent after repair works were not carried out on his flat.
Chris Cooper was found guilty after a trial of sending by means of a public electronic communications network a message that was grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character.
Kirklees magistrates heard that the complainant Nisar Choudhary was the manager of a letting agency.
The landlord of a flat being lived in by Cooper at Sprinkwell Mill in Dewsbury had asked Mr Choudhary to manage the property on his behalf.
Cooper, 33, was asked to contact the company to agree an inspection of his flat.
Instead he made a call to the office and was verbally abusive towards Mr Choudhary.
Cooper called him a P**i and said: “If you ever come near my flat I’ll sort you out - you won’t be walking on your legs.”
Paul Blanchard, mitigating, explained that his client had a long-running dispute with his landlord over serious repairs that were needed.
He told the court: “The landlord hands this over to the letting agent who probably didn’t know the history.
“Mr Cooper takes his frustration out on a person who was not responsible for the problem.
“It was an isolated phone call and he didn’t approach the premises.”
Magistrates gave Cooper, now of Brewerton Lane in Dewsbury Moor, a six-week curfew.
He must also pay £620 prosecution costs and £60 victim surcharge.
