Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
I am sorry to hear about this. Just to be clear, you have a lease in place? Are you asking that he be added as a tenant?
Thank you and please allow me a moment
If you have a lease in place, she would need to be added as a tenant and be given permission by the landlord, to reside there. If you have someone living there who is not on the lease, you could be in violation of the lease and subject to eviction. Now, if they want to allow her to stay and will agree to add her but raise the rent as a condition, they can. However, they can not just raise the rent if she were to vacate and you were going to remain. There was nothing wrong with her visiting and staying as a guest but if she is living there, they have to agree to this and work something out with you or she would need to leave or they have to evict you. It is not a situation whereby she can stay and they have to allow it.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
