You need the police; If you can get proof that this woman is doing something illegal that would help. For the most part I'm going to assume that this woman has been in your apartment for more than 30 days and has gotten mail there in her name. If this is true you really only have to options1. You can move and let your landlord deal her or 2. you'll need to go to court and let a judge remove her. Both options are unpleasant but both will get her away from you.
If you choose court bring your lease without her name on it. File an eviction motion; DO NOT put that you want the money she owes you, you only want the your property back.
Gather evidence that this woman is trouble file it all and hopefully in less than 90 days the woman will be out of your hair.

I would say if your current residence meets your needs and would be financially less than owning a home. Then buying may not be the best option now.

According to one database, it states that pets are allowed. No management agency is listed on the database. It would be prudent of you to confirm the pet policy hasn't changed.
