My wife wants her sister to stay over 5 days in my apartment ( she is a occupant on the lease, I am head of household and the lease holder). I told her and her sister not to come. They insist on coming any way. If the sister comes, legally do I have the right to call the Police and have the sister out of my apartment if she is there (even though I told her not to come to the apartment)? I understand that my wife is entitled to visitors but she works until night and I don't want her sister staying over. What are my options?
You may want to go away for a few days if this bothers you so much. Is it worth wrecking your marriage. Even if your sister in law is the biggest b**** known to human kind she is your wife's family and it is only five days. Since she is invited in by your wife who resides there the police will not remove her. However it could easily back fire on you when the police come she could say you are harassing her and at best they will ask you to leave the home for the night or arrest you.
If she is on the lease she can invite her sister in. I doubt the police will forcibly remove her unless there is violence. The real question is, which is non-legal, how badly do you want to piss your wife off? As a married man, with a sister-in-law I would not want staying with us for 5 days, I would just suck it up.
Dear New York Tenant:
You had a Landlord and Tenant question posted as Child Custody. The answer is the police will not assist to remove your sister-in-law if she is in the apartment with your wife's permission. The last thing you want to have happen to you from your antagonism to your wife's sister is a domestic violence charge. So as already pointed out: If you are so offended by your working at night wife having her sister sojourn with her in the apartment for five days move out for your own sake. In nearly every instance, a spouse of a tenant is the same as a tenant and a tenant may have immediate family live with the tenant and surely has a right for a family member to visit.
