Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
A landlord may impose any restrictions they wish as long as those restrictions are contained in the lease and are not discriminatory in nature. If the landlord decides to impose restrictions on the tenants after a lease is signed then he/she would risk a lawsuit unless they wait until the lease renewal to impose the new restrictions. Of course, some leases permit a landlord to impose new restrictions for good cause.
A careful review of the written lease is in order.
