My question involves a roommate in the State of: California (Pasadena specifically if that helps..)
The situation is as follows (sorry for length but complex):
Lease is up on an apartment shared by 3 roommates in 2 months or so from now...
Lots of bad things about "Nightmare Roommate" (which I'll refer to as "N.R.") so I'm trying to state only relevant facts...
Police have had to be called on more than one occasion for domestic disturbances because of "N.R." fighting with her boyfriend in the apartment (he has damaged the property, trashed her stuff, and hit her but she won't report it).
She has also brought/left her dog in the apartment numerous times (once for day) which is a big violation of the lease!
These things have been relayed to the landlord and "N.R." and she has been sternly (but non-threateningly) spoken to.
Can I get kicked out as well? Does the landlord have legal clout to kick us all out? Should a move to get N.R. evicted be done before the lease is up? Obviously I want to kick N.R. out and find a new co-tenant when the time comes to renew but I'm afraid changing the locks won't be enough (suspect drug use/ criminal history but cannot prove) so should I/can I get a restraining order.
Advice greatly appreciated...
