Help! Harassing, violent roommate has rights, but do I?

Posted by Mollyann on March 19, 1999 at 03:03:56:

Someone please help! My roommate physically attacked me and has been verbally doing so for quite some time. The police were called, and a week later she was before the school judiciary board. she plead no contest and was ordered to move out of our house. Tonight, she moves out but informs me the landlord has given her the right to enter the house whenever she wants and do as she will. She has locked two rooms in the house - her room and the living room. I can not get to the cable outlet or the phone jack because of this. She has not left me any keys. She said in the note that she will be observing me to see that i do not violate the lease in any way and she will have me evicted if i do. CAN SHE DO THIS? DO I HAVE TO PUT UP WITH HER HARASSING ME FOR THE NEXT 3 MONTHS? i am trying to find a subleaser but that will be difficult for only one quarter. Also, she says she is looking for a subleaser!!! DO I GET ANY SAY HERE AT ALL ABOUT WHO LIVES WITH ME???? help, help, help. i am at my wits end. it seems she has many rights and i have none!!!! What are my rights? what should i do?
