Auburn, WA asked in Elder Law for Oregon

Q: We share an apartment with the manager and share the kitchen. Can she lock us out of the kitchen? Rent is 700.00/month

We have been here over a year and there has never been a problem. Originally we were to share the kitchen and living room. It is difficult to share the living room because of it's size. We came home today and found she had placed a lock on the kitchen door. We also have our own personal refrigerator in the kitchen.

A: Your question is currently categorized under Elder Law in Oregon. Do you live in Auburn, WA? I think you will get better answers if you choose Landlord - Tenant as your category. Be sure to also choose the correct state since laws vary from state to state.
