My husband and i rent a room in his parents' home. Is it legal for us to change lock to the bedroom?We are a young couple (ages 21 & 22), and have been living here since summer 2010. We only rent an upstairs bedroom in their small townhouse. There are times when we are not home for a day or more. We return and are reprimanded about the cleanliness of the room, and that we have all the cups upstairs. Mind you we are strict on expenses and limited on space, therefore the room is simply "cluttered" and not messy. Also, I specifically remember only leaving 3 cups in the room. I am a stay-at-home wife and college student so I clean, do laundry, etc. We have had enough of being treated like their children who lack in hygiene and cleanliness, and allowing the chance of our belongings being looked through by them. Is it legal for us to change the bedroom lock? Its basically locked when we're around, and they complain about it being locked. Shouldn't this be violating my privacy? We have many confidential papers and are definitely considering a safe.January 18 2011 - Baltimore00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
