My sister has been living with me for a few months. She

My sister has been living with me for a few months. She contributes a couple hundred $'s a month but not what we agreed upon. It is my home, I own it. My name is ***** ***** the bills. There is no lease agreement. We have had a falling out and she had to go out of town for a few days. When I got home yesterday she had put the security lock on the front door intentionally and I couldn't get inside. I had to have my son come over and climb thru the 2nd story window to let me in. She has found an apt and is moving out but in the meantime I do not want her back in my home. I'm changing the locks and was told I could do that and she can set up a time to come get her belongings. Is this legal? I live in California.

My wife and I signed a settlement agreement in a UD case in

My wife and I signed a settlement agreement in a UD case in California. We paid for an additional month at the home as written in the settlement agreement. The problem is the home never had a working heater and the septic got to the point it was backing up in the sinks. We reported the septic at the beginning of the last month of the agreement and the landlord waited till two days before move out to have it emptied. Being that we had a contract in which we paid for a month at the home but the landlord failed to provide what we were paying for would that be considered a breach of contract and if so what course of action should I take?
