I have a roommate which both are in good standing with the

I have a roommate which both are in good standing with the landlord, I have paid my rent on time but he had commonly paid late which the landlord has accepted, that said, all utilities are in my name and he has not paid me for any portion of the utilities for a year and a half after repeatedly asking for the amount, I have provided bills and a statement of what he owes. He also acknowledged in an email that he ows me the money but is "working on it", but never pays. He also refused to put the utilities in his name. I plan to take him to small claims but is presently using the electric and gas in a very expensive and wasteful way (leaving the heat on when he is away for days). Can i cut the circuits to his part of the house and lock the utility closet? What can I do so that I don't incur continued costs of unpaid utilities? Please help, thanks.

Do I have any rights or recourse. Warren County, MO is the location.

My listing agent and I are having a disputed on our

My listing agent and I are having a disputed on our Residential Listing Agreement- Exclusive Authorization and Right to Sell. I procured a possible buyer (my old friend) on my own before signing the agreement but did not exclude him in the Listing Agreement. The broker knew that I was planning on a for sale by owner to my friend but I was naieve to sign an exclusive listing contract with her thinking it pertained just to other brokers. My broker demands exclusivity of the listing and a commission rate at the close. The rate will entitle her to $12,000 if I get my asking price. Listing agreement is for 12 months.She also said that if I decide to do a for sale by owner with the possible buyer/my friend found before the agreement, she will charge me $2500 to handle the paperwork or if I chose not to have her involved at all. She is basically threatening me that she wants compensation due to the exclusive listing and wants $$$ regardless if she finds the buyer on her own or not. The listing is temporarily withdrawn due to our dispute but the broker has not forgotten that she is entitled to $$ if as she says I do the for sale by owner behind her back.I'm not planning on working with a new agent/broker to look for potential buyers. I would possibly like to continue the for sale by owner process with my friend and accept paying the $2,500 payment to the broker if the sale does close.My question is, do I need to disclose this during the sale process to my broker. Since it's not guaranteed that my friends fha loan will meet the underwriting guidelines of the sale, I am afraid of paying $2,500 regardless of the sale closing or not. Do I list the $2,500 payment to the broker on escrow or do I write her office a personal check after the close? Can the broker find out about this sale other than me telling her?
