Hi, thank you for responding. Yes I was aware that is was for the driver's license. He came to visit, and a neighbor complained that the car was parked to close the house and took a picture of the license plate. The neighbor works for the property management company that we are renting the house through, and also has a personal relationship with the landlord. I came home to today to a notice from the city that an inspector came by to check the rental. I received an email yesterday from the property manager saying that the neighbor is suspecting that there is more people living in the house than on the lease. So i am assuming it is an inspection for code violations for the lease regarding occupancy.
Thank you for the additional information. If it were me, I would maintain the story that friend is only using your address to get his mail because he was inbetween homes and wanted a stable place to receive his mail. .I wouldn't get into the driver's license issue. That is between him and the DMV if they find out and he could be charged with fraud in application for registration and driver's license. But the fact that he has engaged in fraud wouldn't necessarily make you somehow guilty of a crime as long as you were just letting him use your address to get mail..I haven't heard of a city inspector coming by at the request of the landlord to check for occupancy. It sounds like the inspector is a friend of the landlord and is doing him a favor. Once he confirms that you don't have additional people living there, that should satisfy the landlord and put the matter to rest. The landlord doesn't care about driver's license fraud, only about how many people may be living in his property..

Will the city inspector ask me questions about the friend's car?
