My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of California
Guys, I need some advice on what to do in this situation. I got a job at an Amazon facility but is two hours away from where I live. I live in the Marina Del Rey area and my workplace is at South Gate. I am supposed to start working on May 22nd. ( yes in two days)My roommate has been negotiating with my parents to see if there is a way for me to not go to work right now since the virus. Although both my parents and I agreed that I need the work and money to support myself my roommate is against it he even went ahead to change the lock of the apartment door (not the lock of the main entrance)
The thing is I want to be independent and make some money to be able to support myself but I also understand that safety is a concern and I don't want to get infected. But my roommate is making it hard for me to go out even to get groceries which really made it inconvenient for myself. I understand that he wants to protect himself but I also want my life and to be able to live at peace without creating any storms. (I don't go out that often about every two weeks tops, except for the last few days since I need to take the bus to go to work I need to figure out the bus route and things)
So the bottom line is between my roommates' safety concerns and me wanting to make a living and support myself especially since now how difficult is for anyone to get a job. Even before the quarantine, I've been trying to get a job, and now when I finally got a job this happened(the quarantine) so I don't know what to do; does my roommate even have the right to do what he did? If you guys have any information on such a thing please let me know!! Thank you all!!
