Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.
can she just enter my roomor let someone in my room without permission.
No, assuming that your agreement with the roommate was that each of you got your own room, then that is your private area and the other roommate has no right to enter it without your permission.
But Animal Control officers have legal authority to investigate alleged cases of animal abuse or animal cruelty and can file criminal charges against the owners. So if there was some concern that the dog was injured or was abused, the officer would have had the legal authority to enter the room to investigate once they asked the roommate to enter the dwelling.
I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...
Ok, then you would have to appear and explain the situation and how your roommate put the dog in her kennel temporarily and that it does not normally stay there....that is why it was crying and making noises..
That is a logical explanation to the situation..
