Put a chair in front of the door. That will keep them out. It's not a lock...
This is so illegal. Def something to breach the rental contract with. Any judge would rule in ops favor. This is a breach of his/her privacy. Of course there is always more to the story than one or two sentences on an fml site but from what it sound like, totally illegal.
If the landlord put a clause in that they can enter with or without your permission there is nothing you can do. OP needs to go over her copy of the rental agreement and see if it's there. If not then they need to tell the landlord that she needs to stop or OP will go to court over breach of contract and make the landlord pay back rent and any money OP has given her.
even if the landlord has it in the rental agreement that they can enter whenever,I'm pretty sure a judge would still rule in ops favor,as a landlord abusing this would be frowned upon,its mainly just to cover themselves so they can enter in an emergency,and telling someone they can't lock their doors,invading privacy,that's not right. as far as I know when you rent a home,that is YOUR space for the duration you stay.
I'm sorry 3, but the 8 year olds are not in any way unhappy. They'd even not agree that their life deserves an FML. I'm sure they both are very happy they don't have to hide books or websites too ease their curiosity. They have a perfectly good woman showering upstairs who's for some reason listening to their crazed mother.
No. No it's not okay. If I'm not mistaken that's illegal for her to do.
40--if you were paying to live in a place where your privacy wasn't respected and you felt helpless, you'd be a little desperate too. What OP's landlord is doing is illegal. And creepy. There are laws to protect tenants from exactly this shit. FYL OP. and if you can, get a new shower curtain...then call someone.
Certainly creepy, but OP didn't say "I checked the tenancy agreement and there is no clause giving permission to do this" - if OP didn't bother to read the whole agreement then it may actually give the landlord the right to do this. Normally there will be a clause saying they have the right to enter 'during normal business hours' or 'at a time which is not unreasonable', but if the landlord drafted the agreement and wanted the right to do this, they probably didn't draft it to exclude what they wanted to do.
It's actually not illegal for the owner of the home to drop by whenever they want, they still own the house, it is still theirs your just occupy it. It's nice when you are given a heads up but it is not needed. It's just wrong the way she does it, by bringing her kids and letting them walk in on you.
She's referring to her previous comment, #75, in attempt to finish it. Either she is not aware of the Edit feature, she didn't realize her mistake until after the editing period had passed, or she thought it'd be cute to finish her sentence with another posting in order to sound cute or add a dramatic pause. It's still a fail in one way or the others.
Either this is illegal, or you need to move to a country where the laws make sense.
61: Not exactly true. Both of it just refers to a public protest or demonstration (or similar). The law just says that people are not allowed to cover their faces there and that they are not allowed to bring items that might prevent the police from successfully intervening or that might be indicative of a disposition towards violence. AFAIK there is no official list of passive weapons :)
It is illegal, it's classified as invasion/breaking and entering of privacy. If the landlady wants to come and do an inspection thats fine so long as she gives 1 week notice, now if she wants to come over the tenant needs to invite her in in order to be legally in the house.
