I'm a landlord in Ct. I have tenants that breached their lease by allowing someone to live with them. Once I found out, I gave them a little over 3wks to fix the situation.

My daughter is renting a 4 bedroom apartment that is

My daughter is renting a 4 bedroom apartment that is designated in the lease as being " student housing only". It is a twin. On the other side is an additional twin (student housing) connected with 4 bedrooms and 4 other renters with a total of 8 on the premises. There is a common area in the back of the premises that is a hallway that leads to the basement area with a washer and dryer. My daughter had informed me that a man , woman and child ( approx. age 4) has moved into the basement area. When the house was shown to us there was no discussion of additional rooms to rent. They see to have no address, mailbox, and I am not sure about plumbing etc. My daughter is now afraid to do onsite laundry because she does not know who these people are but they have a key. What is my next step?
