    Default Disagreement with Roommates Over Placement of Furniture

    My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: MA

    The kitchen area is being dominated by my roommate, she placed a table in the space that is obstructing the movement from one side of the room to the next. I tried to inform my roommate that I didn't want that table in the room because it is not enough space for it. My roommate brought a table and chairs and placed in that space and told me to take them to court to remove it. What rights do I have? I'm feeling like I'm paying for a place that I being squeezed out of by my roommate.

    p.s. We don't speak, we are two passing ships.

    There are no legal "rights" in regards to how big a table is allowed in a kitchen.

    You two are acting like children. Time to grow up and work this out.

    What rights do I have?
    You both have the right to hitch up your britches and learn to be grown-ups who sit down, discuss things amicably, and make compromises when necessary.

    You also have the right to move out at the end of the lease term, into your own place, with no roommates, and do as you please. If you live with roommates, things are not always going to go your way.
