The microwave does not fulfill the requirement for a stove to make it a legal apartment, thus you would need to be willing to share the kitchen as part of your rental agreement. And then would not be allowed to limit access by time. So yes, locking the basement, cutting off access, would be a breach of contract (depending upon if a rental contract even exists). If not, perfectly acceptable and not a fire code violation.

I'm sure that would violate the fire code at best and result in the children's deaths at worst if fire breaks out anywhere in the house. Just get them a hot plate, preferably one with an automatic shut-off.

Of course it's not abuse but they shouldn't have to lock the door. They should just be able to tell their adult son and his girlfriend to stop doing that or they can chose to live somewhere else.

Adult son & gf chose to live in W/O basement furnished with microwave,fridge,bedroom and bathroom of parent' home waking up one parent who works 12 hr shifts by coming upstairs & cooking repeatedly in mid of night. Is locking door to upstairs abuse?
