I currently share a house with several roommates in DC (I am young so it’s alright). We get along for the most part. Anyway, recently (this last weekend) I went camping and one of the roommates (the landlord roommate) assumed that it was alright for other people to stay in my room since I was not going to be there. I had a problem with it so I locked my door and went out for the weekend. Well this really pissed him off so he gave me an eviction notice yesterday. Anyway, have any of you had that type of experience or have any ideas what type of laws are out there to protect me? Unfortunately, I never signed a real lease, but I think there are some basic tenants rights that should be covered.
Any assistance would be appreciated. Also, any evil paybacks would be appreciated as well.
