Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.

.

You can put occupancy restrictions on the number of people who can live in an apartment. So if you want to restrict it to two people, you put that as a restriction in the lease. Then you can also put in a restriction from having guests stay over longer than X days per month. (you decide). If you then witness the tenant having others there early morning or late nights consistently, you can give them a written notice of lease violation and then move to evict them.

.

Tenants think that they are clever and that the landlord will never catch on, but when it comes to going to court, they will usually back down and either get rid of the guests or move out themselves to avoid being evicted.

.

As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...

thanks

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
