Any visitor who stays longer than two consecutive weeks in any six-month period will be regarded as a tenant and will need to be added to the leasing agreement. When a new tenant is added to the lease or the premises, the landlord may also raise the rent at that time.

In some states you can break a lease if your employer.”


“Find someone to take over your portion of the lease. Find someone to take over roomie’s portion of the lease.

Sit the roomie down and lay it all out. Explain that you all will be evicted if her coworker doesn’t get out. Explain that it’s not working out and that the three of you (you, bf, and”


“You three are bonded in the lease agreement, but not the guest who comes to the house with your friends you have full right to kick them out from your house. In this case even your friend who is supporting the guests he will be the helpless because you three pay the rents of the house.”
