The Question Club
If you live in an apartment building- does your landlord ever enter your apartment without consulting with you first? I ask because about a month ago, I woke up to my landlord standing in my bedroom. He said he had knocked but had not received an answer, so had let himself in. Water had been building up in the basement so he wanted to check my bathroom or something. It freaked me the fuck out (the waking up in bed naked with a random man standing in the room part) and ever since then I've had a lot of, albeit irrational, anxiety- being really scared someone's in my room/gonna come into my room when I'm falling asleep etc and other anxiety related issues. |
Today, when I was came home (in the early evening this time) my landlord was outside my apartment door, looking through he keys to find the one to my apartment so he could get in (still problems with the water apparently.) That time was fine because I wasn't caught totally off guard, but I'm still having a lot of residual anxiety about the first time. My question is- would it be OK, if it comes up again, to ask him to call me before he plans on getting into my apartment? Or is that completely out of line, given that he owns the building?
