Unfortunately, if your son is not a legal occupant of your apartment, that is, if you did not list him on your lease as an occupant, the Landlord can put a restriction on how long he stays at your place and if he overstays, the Landlord can demand that you tell him to leave. If you refuse, the Landlord can evict you for breach of the lease. You can avoid this by asking the Landlord for amendment of your lease and adding your son as an occupant, not as the lessee so that he can stay until his medical situation is resolved. If the Landlord agrees to amend the lease, the Landlord should prepare an Amendment simply indicating that your son has been added as an occupant. Both you and the Landlord must sign and date the Amendment. Kindly give a positive rating to my response so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for doing this. Thank you for your cooperation.
