    Answered . You can't...its up to the landlord to do so. If your wife cheated and you want to separate, it might be best for you to find a new place to live, gather evidence of her adultery, and contact a divorce attorney.

    The LL can prove that someone is living there, perhaps they just don't care to try, but that is their prerogative.
