My rental agreement says, Resident and Resident(s) guests shall not violate any criminal or civil law, ordinance of statute in the use of the premises, commit waste or nuisance, annoy, molest, or interfere with any other person on the property or neighbor. Yesterday, I opened my front door; simply opened the door. I saw a young man walking on the property and a moving van, and I said, Moving in?" He said that his buddy was moving in. I said, "Well, then welcome to your buddy", and was about to step away form the door when the manager came running over and asked me what I was doing now and to stop. I was mystified. I said, I just opened my door. Later I asked him why he had barked at me. He got very huffy and said that I have to stop being nosy. That I have to just stop it. That two people have complained about me being nosy. I have no idea what he is talking about. I said to him, something to the effect, "Well maybe these two people could come talk to me." He got even more huffy and told me just to stop that he wasn't going to talk about it anymore. There are some unfriendly people here, so I leave them alone. Short of keeping my blinds and door closed, I'm not sure what to do.
I am unaware of any state where being friendly is a basis for a LL to start the eviction process.
