As a tenant, you have the right to remain in possession of your rental property until or unless a court orders you to vacate. Your sister can not change the locks and kick you out. Explain this to your sister and if she fails to relinquish possession, seek the assistance of a lawyer.See question

Read your lease carefully. Most likely you AND your roommate are jointly responsible for the entire rent. That means, if it isn't paid, the landlord may sue one or both of you for the entire amount due.
If you can't work this out with your roommate, it might be time to find somewhere else to live.See question

If you feel the need to call the police on your neighbors, then just call the police.
If you believe repairs need to be made and the landlord is not taking care of them, you should notify him in writing. If they are still being repaired, then you should contact your local Housing Authority and/or Zoning Enforcement office. If that still doesn't work, then you might consider finding a new place to live as that might be easier than filing a legal action against your landlord every time something needs to be fixed.See question

You should read the language of your application carefully. If you signed it and agreed that the $80 fee would be non-refundable, then most likely it is non-refundable.See question

If you have a written lease agreement, you should read it over carefully. Most likely, your landlord can not "evict" you for nit signing the waiver. However, he may be in a position to not renew your lease once the term has expired.See question
We have agreed to let the tenant out of the lease agreement early. They now have a lawyer wanting us to sign a mutual release agreement. The tenants have already used their security deposit to pay for the rent since we did not provide written noti...
Do not sign anything that you do not understand. If the document sounds "fishy" you should trust your instincts and have a local Landlord/Tenant Lawyer review it for you.See question
