Ohhh I have so many hell roommate stories haha. A lot of them steam from a roommate that lived at the apt. for the longest. For some reason I think that when someone is the “orginal” roommate of the house they think that own it. Even if you are paying more in rent (that was the case for me)!!

The only thing I can say is that this woman does seem to have some level of respect for you and that maybe you can confront her. It sounds like she is used to doing things HER way but lets be honest here I’m sure if you speak with your new roommate, it’s 2 against 1. Maybe you both can sit her down and say this house is as much your house as it is hers and some changes need to start happening. You should be allowed to bring people over. Maybe not every night but come on, you never can have your Fiance sleep over?

If a talk doesnt work I think that you should look into rentors rights in your area – she is probably going to go nuts on you again, so just contact the owner directly rather than her. I’m sure the landlord is curious as to why people keep circulating in and out of that place.  I am a firm believer that your home should be your santuary. Your situation is going to have to change or you’ll never have peace when you come home.

When does your lease expire? You need to get the heck out of there! This woman having double standards and making everyone uncomfortable in a shared living space is not acceptable. I think you and the new roomie could (nicely) confront her in a 2 on 1 situation and see what happens. It’s not cool for her to be a tyrant when you’re all equal parts of the living arrangment there.
