Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: I live in an apartment complex and another tenant is harassing me. They banged on my door the other night for the longest time and then threw food on my car the same night. This started because I told my office that she was parking in 2 spots so no one else could park next to her. What can be done to protect my property?

Answer: You can go to the closest municipal or justice of the peace court and request an "injunction against harrassment". You file a petition/request with the court. If you can show that the other person committed a "series of acts" (usually at least two seperate events)that an ordinary person would find extremely disturbing the Court can grant the request or set it for a hearing.
