This is a spin off of my "FIL is Driving Me Nuts!" question. My husband and I live with my FIL. My husband doesn't pay any rent, but I pay half of it and my FIL pays the other half. My FIL refuses to let us baby proof the house. We can't move anything around, there are wires on the walls, and breakables low to the ground. I don't want to make any drastic changes, I just want to move some things around until my son is older or we move out! But anyway, my question is, who's apartment is it? If we pay equal rent and my name is on the lease, shouldn't I have some say in this?

It's your FIL apartment he is letting you live with him. Yes you do pay half the rent, I am sure he feels he is helping you out. I would kindly let him know my safety concerns, if it's such a big deal to him, then you should be looking for a new place to live.
