What rights do I have when renting a room in someone's house

Me and my husband are renting a room from his parents in their house. I want to know what rights I have living here, they are always going in our room when we are not there going through our stuff, and right now we are not allowed to use the kitchen.or bathroom due to his brother vandalising it, and can't use it until we clean his mess??? What the heck? No bathroom...Hm...

Leave that place ASAP. Its will only get worse........Them going thru your room and stuff is against the law and they can be arrested for trespassing......Sence they are the landlord they can make your life hell.....Like no bathroom? Really? I would pee and do my business in the backyard on the porch........Them not letting you use the bathroom or kitchen is inhumane and they can be arrested for that also. They obviously want you all out of the house, so best is not give them anymore money and pack your things and leave without them knowing. Screw the parents.

If I were you I'd get out of there asap! I don't know if you have any definitive rights unless you signed a rental agreement of some sort? It sounds like there's a lot of privacy issues going on as well as an abuse of power coming from your in-laws.

I agree with Bcs07 I would definitely get out of there if I were you. Sounds like to much drama is going around there it's not good specially because it can cause problems between you and your husband since it is your in laws.. Good luck!

You can only be entitled to rental rights if you have it written on paper and signed. Currently, you can not complain for the loss of your items because no one can be held liable. However, you still have the right to make complaints if the situation goes on.

You certainly have your privacy rights, cannot go in unless a written statement is given to you with atleast 24 hour notice and has to be of reason why. And all common areas must be in accessible condition along with clear pathways and free of debri
