My roommate threatened to throw my things outside and then she threatened to have me evicted specifically to hurt my credit score. She did this because I would not allow her to use my closet space. Is this considered harassment? Can I be taken off the lease now because I do not feel safe...?
Yes, it’s possible to cancel a lease on 30 days notice over safety concerns.
Knowing the insanity around SF roommate deals, I suggest you review details with one of us in an Avvo consultation, to make sure you are taking the right steps. You might contact SF Community Boards, if you think a mediated conversation with roommate would resolve things.
There’s a tenant prospect for every closet, nook, and cranny in the City, so if you take the right steps, your financial liability can be minimized.
If you are concerned for your immediate safety, get out. Contact SFPD.
