I live in a building. Property manager sent a memo saying Verizon would wire every of the units. I refused to give permission to enter my unit placing a note on my door. Building workers tried to open my door with a key to let a guy from Verizon in. but I blocked it. Then manager sent the cops on me. I refused to let them in and filled a complaint with police for those maintenance workers attempt to enter even when I was inside yelling at them not to enter.
I have no business with Verizon. After this attempt to invade my apartment, I feel no safe anymore living in my home. Any legal advice in case Manager wants to take me to court? I want to sue my landlord: where should I go in Boston?
It's somewhat unclear from your question that you have a claim against your landlord. The landlord generally has a right to enter to perform repairs and maintenance on the units, but as you said, if you did not have a relationship with verizon, you weren't necessarily obligated to let them in to make upgrades to the unit. However, if the maintenance workers did not actually enter the apartment you may not have a claim. In order to have a claim, you have to show that the landlord committed an action that substantially interfere with your quiet enjoyment of the premises. You can sue the landlord in any court that has jurisdiction such as the housing court.
