I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of experience handling matters of this nature. It is a pleasure to assist you today. Unfortunately, the landlord has the right to take this action. That said, for you to know exactly what your rights are relative to this particular property, you need to get a copy of your lease agreement and look for the contractual language in the lease that pertains to guests, rights of guests and the rights of the property as well. One alternative for you may be to add your guest to the lease as a paying tenant. This, of course, would be subject to approval by the landlord. However, if this agreement can be reached, it would give the guest more rights and would prevent them from being as easily removed or evicted from the premises. Let me know if you have any other questions or comments. Please also rate my answer positively (THREE OR MORE Stars) so I can receive credit for my response. Best wishes going forward!
