DEAR ABBY: We have a stalker living in our apartment building. It's the residential manager, "Jerry." The owners of the building have been called several times about it, but all they say is, "He's just weird."
Several women tenants say he's harassing them. Jerry has tried to enter their apartments late at night. One lady feels her safety is being threatened because he goes through the halls announcing that she is alone now. When she informed her doctor about it, he said he was going to call the sheriff.
One of the women is thinking about asking to have deadbolt locks installed on the inside of our doors. Have you any other suggestions? -- SINGLE AND WORRIED IN MINNESOTA
DEAR WORRIED: Just this. Although a landlord may be entitled to have access to an apartment, that access has to be reasonable. Tenants have rights, and the concerned tenants in your building should consult a real estate attorney who can review your leases and explain what your rights are. Jerry appears to be more than weird; his behavior seems bizarre and I don't blame you for being concerned about it.
