This person lives in a house, not an apartment building, which makes things a little more difficult. Putting in extra chains and bolts is a good idea but the person should have something in writing given to the LL first in order to create a paper trail which would then be very important to prove this person's case when and if this person decides to go to court against the LL or if the LL claims that he/she's thrown out the tenant because the tenant blocked access. If there is no paper trail along with receipts (and detailed notes of each incident that occurred), then the LL can claim ignorance or it'll be a "he said she said" type of deal.

And normally throwing people down stairs, while a great venting fantasy, only leads to more tension and drama or someone possibly gettting killed.


: When any of you are dealing with a real low life animal landlord that makes comments to you that he will let himself in at ANYTIME he/she feels like it and you don't have a boyfriend who will throw him/her down the stairs when they enter your apartment and try to step into your bedroom unannounced THEN you have to install a chain AND/OR a bolt so the animal low life can't EVER come into your apartment while you are home unannounced !!!
