Can i ask my roommates to stay out of my room?

My roommates seem aggravated by the fact I clean and believe I dont deserve to live there. I been trying to fix this by leaving them be and staying in my room. Now they are staying in my room all day and I started sleeping elsewhere. Landlord says I cant break lease for another month. Im unsureof what to do right now. They told me I can leave if I dont like how the house is but also I cant legally leave becuase I have a contract.

Is It Normal?
Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Why not just put a locking door knob on your door and dont give anyone a key.

  • I thought you said your roommates were slobs and your landlord was going to toss you out for not keeping the place clean. So what is the problem? Their mess or them hanging out in your room?

    • No I never said anything like that. I said in the contract and according to the Tenent/landlord code the house is to be kept clean. They are not doing that and I am not allowed to do it if they wont. So I left the common area be.

  • You can always break a contract and deal with the consequences. Being out a few hundred dollars is better than mental torment.

    • I cant break it without finding a new tenent.

      • Can you afford double rent? Keep paying rent while you are stuck in a contract but you can still physically leave. It's not a prison. Or find a homeless person and give them the money to rent the place.

  • How many bedrooms and how many roomates?

  • From the comments it sounds like you've exhausted all your options with your landlord (who sounds like a butthole btw) I would stay with a friend and find a new place.

  • Awful situation.

    Privacy is a fundamental right, isn't it?

    I think it depends on what sort of place you live in. You call them 'roommates'. Is your bedroom a dormitory with bunks in it? Do you share a room with one of them? If you have a bedroom to yourself then I would have said that nobody should be in it but you.

    If it's one other person, your rights should be 50-50. Could the other person agree to let you have the room to yourself for at least half an hour per day (the time it takes to have a decent nap), in exchange for them having the right to invite people into it for an hour each day (the time it takes to have a decent cup of tea and a chat)?

    • Well I mainly just need it to sleep but also them together seem to be scheming. I also stopped using the common area cuase they angry I cleaned and said I have no right move thier dishes, items, trash out of common space. So i stopped using it entirely. Also the other party had thier own private room and knows I dont want to be bothered. It makes more sense to go to thier room instead of everyone having sociol gathering in mine. Ican not adress this since when I do bring up issues they say my speaking style is offensive so at this piont im unsure. Now I need to find a different place to sleep.

      • Do you have your own (1-person) room, though? If you do, then them coming into your space without your consent is a privacy violation. You can tell your landlord this.
