: I would advise you to add a very heavy door chain , so that you can open the door a few inches. It's too bad that you didn't have a dog tear him to pieces. I would file a complaint with the Police Dep't so you have a written record of what he did. Try to find another place to live. This guy is an animal !! " DO NOT BE AFRAID TO FILE REPORT OR SEND LETTER "

I appreciate what you are saying. But I do not know if I am overreacting, underreacting, or what. The lease stipulates that I may not change the locks. I am hesitant to call the police on my own landlord for trying to enter a house he owns. I don't want to be a troublemaker. I know he is supposed to give notice before coming, but if he doesn't, is his attempt to enter really on the same level as a stranger's? Does anybody know what the actual LAW is on this?
