My room mate is hostile, violent, vicious and cruel. My room mate is a Pentagon Employee income over $65,000 a year. There have been 4 incidents of minor acts of violence, harassment and hostilities towards me. I have tried to be patient, but my patience is running thin. I pay the rent on time, keep the apartment clean, buy the toiletries, fix meals for all (3) of us and I have extended myself too far trying to keep the peace. I feel I am being used, misused and abused. My room mate has a drinking problem. I was not aware my room mate had a drinking problem when we all signed the agreement to be room mates. We have been room mates for 6 months now.
This morning there was another incident. My room mate came and threw all my clothes and belongings in the floor. I told her I would call the police if she didn't stop. Then my room mate came towards me and raise her hand to strike me in the head. Her aunt was there and she prevented her from hitting me. I was so badly shaken that I immediately go dress and left the house. This is my first time living with room mates because of the high cost of living here in the District of Columbia, specifically the upper NW area where I work, I thought I would give it a try and enjoy the luxury of walking to and from work. But she has been a room mate from hell!
Do I have any legal rights here. My room mate has terrorist tendencies. She strikes, fear, pain, harm, sorrow and grief at any given time. We are stand alert when she walks in the door. Do I have any legal rights here? I would appreciate all the help and advice you will kindly offer.
