Hey guys & gals, I usually don't post much up here (but I'm constantly reading what everyone has to say), but lately I've been going through drama with my room-mate and I REALLY need advice. So we've been arguing for the past month and its getting to the point where I'm about to beat him up, but I know thats what he wants me to do so he can press charges. My question is this; can I legally just put all his stuff outside of the apartment door and change the locks? His name isn't on the lease at all, and although he has paid for August rent, his dog has damaged several parts of the apartment that he has no intention of paying, he is threatening to steal his bedroom furnitue, which I have paid for and he has only paid me $100 on, but his dog also ate my charger for my laptop and it cost $85 for me to get a new one, and he leaves all the lights on in the apartment saying "i hope the electric bill isn't too high cuz i ain't paying for none of it.." I'm about 5 seconds from beating the sh*t out of this guy but I'd rather be civilized about it all. PLEASE any information that could help me, I haven't called the police yet because my phone is cut off because he hasnt given me money for last month's electric, internet, etc. Thanks...
