Thank you for using JustAnswer.
It is legal so long as you're not trying to defraud the owner. That is, if he doesn't "qualify" because he's a felon, etc... and the landlord doesn't want to rent to felons, then to put it in your name to get around this would be fraud. But if he doesn't qualify financially, and there's nothing specifically wrong about him living there (with or without the other party) then putting it in your name would still be legal. Now there should still be full disclosure to the owner. It should be made clear as to whom is going to be living there as opposed to who is going to be on the lease. As long as everyone is honest with each other, it's certainly legal to do this.
