    So I need help. I am getting called names, like skittles for example. I need help, I talked to the security gaurd and he said call the cops for harassment but I dont want to involve the cops. Next time it happens i will have too. I have talked to the apartment office about it, but i doubt they will do anything.. Is there a way to break an apartment lease cause of this, what should I do. Anyone have similar stories.. They keep attacking my bf and I and i dont know what to do.. :(

    Call the police. They are committing a felony and should be arrested and jailed.

    Aside from calling the police, which should be done even if it's just so that there is an official record of the steps you've already taken should things get worse later on...

    I don't know where you are in the world, but here in the UK there are reasonable expectations all landlords are held to, which include things such as building safety/security and to deal with any other tenants causing a disturbance/breaking the law.

    We have specific teams within the local council who investigate accusations that these expectations aren't being met (my ex landlord was investigated for years, but there were never enough tenants prepared to back up the claims, and they were very complex issues needing evidence like you couldn't imagine!) and they can be stripped of their control of their own properties should things reach a certain point, with various options offered like time to improve the situation, training courses, or sale of the property to someone else.

    If the expectations aren't being met, the case can be made that the contract is void and therefore there is nothing to break, you are free to leave as you wish.

    As I said, I've no idea if any of the above applies where you are, but regardless, records of everything need to be kept, with any evidence you can possibly gather (difficult in the case of harassment unless it becomes physical or involves letters/graffiti) police records, copies of any/all letters sent to building management and the likes... Everything you can get to support that you've done everything by the book and the situation hasn't been resolved.

    LOL, skittles? I thought I had heard all the racial slurs there were...

    Anyway, when you say they are attacking your boyfriend, do you mean physically? Or just name-calling? One is a crime, the other is tough luck.

    Well, that's horrible behavior, but not illegal. Harassment is a civil tort, but you'd have to show actual damages.

    People are assholes. If you try to change their behavior, it probably won't work. Revenge is difficult and unlikely to satisfy you in the long run. My advice: grow some skin, move, and be happy somewhere else.

    Its so sad that in the 21st we still have to deal with such IGNORANT CLOSE MINDED PPL.. no one should have to deal with such nasty behavior.

    Squeegie, I wish u and ur bf nothing but luck and I hope u can break your lease U dont need to put up with that from anyone and your home is your safe haven so if youre Not feeling safe there, I think U should move elsewhere, where u wont be judged or picked on as if U are in grammar school.. Best of Luck to U..

    Until they actually DO something outside of name calling, I.E. physically hurt you, take a swing at you, vandalize your stuff, or threaten to kill you (and you need a credible witness for that) The police can't do anything because they haven't committed a crime yet.

    As for the name-calling, the police will expect you to grow a pair and get over it.
    If it were me, I'd just cut them down with an extremely sharp and witty comeback!
