    Lawyer agrees


    Answered . If he has a written lease, take a look at it to see whether the landlord has the right to limit occupancy. If so, then that is the rule. If not, then he probably can have them live with him, unless they are causing a nuisance or interfering with others' quiet enjoyment of their property, or unless the lease gives the landlord some other basis for excluding them. If there is no written lease, then the landlord can exclude them unless he is doing it for discriminatory reasons (i.e., they are a different race).
