Why on earth would you move into a share situation without something in writing? What difference does it make if she owns the apartment or not? However, if the basis for your question is to find out if you are paying more than half, then if she owns it, I believe the amount you agreed to pay is what she can charge..She still can't summarily throw you out. Ask her not to come into your room. As for a friend staying while she is away: so what!? Would you object if this friend stayed while she was at home? And how do you know she in fact owns the apartment? It sounds like you're not happy. What you should do is look for another place. What you should not do is look for trouble, like locking the friend out of the apartment. Very bad move.
