Ever been evicted by your roommate? We have a friend who right now is going through living hell. She and her roommate took on a new, third roommate four months ago. They had to ask her to move out after months of late rent paying and other non harmonious issues. She stopped paying her rent altogether and refused to move out. They then hired lawyers to "evict" their roommate, and found that it's not easy to do. The law protects their roommate, even without paying rent. Right now, the roommate is still living there, everyone's got locks on their doors and our friends are staying out of the apartment as much as possible.
