The final decision as to whether she will allow the landlord to enter her bedroom is really up to her. The decision as to whether she will swing a bat at the head of an intruder is also up to her. Quite frankly, these posts regarding landlord entry are done to stoke up the crowd and for laughs. The reason is that some of them go on for 20 to 30 posts with people fighting with each other and the original poster couldn't care less and is laughing because the situation is not real. It's not real because none of them EVER tell you what they did if anything. I am telling her, you and them what I would feel very comfortable in doing. If you, her or them want landlords or murderers in your bedrooms that is ok with me. Is it ok if I don't have to live that way ?? Is it ok if I don't answer any further posts regarding this subject because quite frankly it should be used worldwide as to see if a person is mentally fit. You can sit down and have a chat with your landlord as he stands in your bedroom at 6am or 3 am. I prefer to see their body laying at the bottom of the stairs if they came up unannounced and silently.

: I couldn't help but laugh -- that was a very good post. The anger is understandable but in order to win, a level head is needed.
: I don't fawn over LL's either but I'm also allergic to lawsuits, especially if the LL has a good chance of winning.
: I just like to cover the bases so the LL doesn't come up with barred access, inflexible tenant, inconsiderate tenant, etc. The less I give the LL to use in court, and the more bases I cover for myself, the better chance I win.
: : You stated that " putting in extra chains or bolts would help" but obviously, if this tenant had those security devices, the landlord would NOT have been able to walk up the stairs to enter her bedroom.
: : As far as a paper trail is concerned, I would install the chain and or bolt ASAP and THEN inform the landlord that you did so due to the conduct of the landlord. Send it certified with receipt and send a copy via regular mail. The tenant cannot wait for "this type" of landlord to decide the security issue.
: : As far as being thrown down the stairs, after attempting to enter a bedroom, I feel it is quite appropriate since the landlord did not verbally announce his/her presence and If the tenant came out of the bedroom swinging a bat in self defense, in anticipation of an intruder, then it's quite a happy ending for a low life animal landlord.
: : I do not fawn over landlords.
