    Changing locks on my apartment. I want to change my locks. My current landlady is saying this is not allowed, yet she won't do it for me. My concern is my psycho ex boyfriend has the other set of keys and has been making threats towards me. Can I change the locks myself or have a locksmith do it for me so long as I give the extra or spare to my landlady? This seems like a reasonable request.

      This is a very reasonable request. Did you try telling your landlord about the situation? If you don't feel safe in your home then you should contact the police and have them either keep a watch out on your apartment at night?
