a landlord says he only wants to share one key
The facts of your case are not entirely clear. It is not possible to determine what stage of the rental process you are presently at. Are you already a tenant and the Landlord has changed the locks but is now withholding the new key? Or, is this the beginning of your tenancy and the Landlord won't let you in?
Either way, read your lease and see if there is any language in it that addresses this situation. My guess is, there isn't any and the Landlord is acting without any legal authority.
Good luck.See question
I was away for half the month and my roommate(RM) wants to split the bill 50/50. I refuse to accept that offer because I was not there using the electricity(E) while he was. I called the E company to get the kWh/day and came to a mathematical conc...
Try to find another way to deal with this dispute. Padlocking the electrical breaker is simply a bad idea. Nothing good will come of it.See question

$970 is much more than this should cost. Call the Magisterial District Court back and ask again how much the filing fees are.
With that being said, read your lease again. Be sure that you and your roommate are both responsible for each other's share of the rent. Most likely you are. But in the event you are not, then let the Landlord deal with your deadbeat roommate.See question
I denied her and an exterminator access to my apartment because she failed to give me receipts for paying rent
This totally depends on the language in your lease agreement. A careful review of your lease will most likely provide you with the answer to your question.See question
The landlord said she will call be back, but I haven't heard a word from her.
It is not possible to accurately answer your question without some additional information. I suggest you re-post your question with more details. Some of the questions you should answer in your re-post are:
1. What exactly did the Court Order say?
2. Is the balance for February part of the Court Order or an obligation you owe under a lease?
3. When is February's payment due?
4. Do you have a written lease agreement and what does it say about evictions?
We moved out of our house on the end of our lease, and asked for an additional week to do the repairs that we had to do to the house, our previous landlord changed the locks. He told us that he will send us a sheet telling us every repair he does ...
Unless your lease provides for it, I know of no way for you to get such a "second opinion". If you believe you landlord has overcharged you, you have the right to file a complaint with your local Magisterial District Court. With that being said, I'm not sure if the time commitment and costs involved with such a legal proceeding will be worth your potential recovery.
Good luck.See question
her key back but said it might take some time to return the key. if everything is okay. whatever that means. please advise.
If you are still holding onto the keys, then your landlord might interpret that as you failing to relinquish possession. I suggest you give back the keys along with your written notice of new address. The landlord will then have 30 days to give you an explanation of what your security deposit was used for and to return the balance of the same to you. If the landlord misses that 30 window, you will have the right to sue for double your original security deposit and your landlord will be precluded from claiming damages to the rental unit.
When it comes to security deposits, timing is very important.

It is our 1st house The lease doesn't have a buyout clause There is supposed to be a buyout addendum, but they forgot to have us sign it when we signed the lease
It does not sound as though you have a "right" to get out of your lease. However, there is nothing preventing you from asking. Call your landlord, explain the situation and see if he/she is willing to work with you on this.See question

As with most Landlord/Tenant matters, the answer to your question can be found in your lease. A careful review of your lease will most likely answer your question. If the lease is silent on this matter, then (with proper notice) your landlord may increase your rent for a subsequent Lease Term. There is no limit to how much this can be increased.
This entire answer is based on the assumption that your unit is NOT section 8 housing.See question
