: I felt very threatened by his behavior, trying to enter the apartment while I was home without even knocking first or announcing himself. Our lease says he can come in for repairs or in "emergencies." Is he allowed to force his way into the apartment to collect the rent? As a woman alone at home in the evenings I feel very threatened by this kind of behavior, shaking and banging on the door. I don't know this guy. Just because he is the landlord doesn't mean he wouldn't hurt me. If he ever did it again I would want to call the police, but I'm afraid they might laugh me off because he's the landlord. My husband wants to send him a letter informing him that it is unacceptable behavior, but I'm afraid that might turn him against us. I have rented before and even the greediest sleaziest landlords have never unnecessarily entered the apartment.

:Why didnt you call the police....he could be a drunk, a dope addict or worse......Also RUSH RUSH RUSH to your nearest insurance agent and get Renters insurance I have $40,000 coverage for $258
