  • You should read your contract if it says anything about that, and if it don't then they shouldn't be able to do that.

  • pretty sure its a fire issue- I think there's a limit to how many people can live in a place based on rooms. since they're your kids, I can see why they would interpret that as living with you, even if you only have them on weekends.

  • I do not think they can do that. I dont know what state you are in, but in IN I dont think they can say anything about overnight guest untill they have been there longer then 2 weeks, and they are not disturbing the peace.

  • depends on the contract. If it is silent to the amount of people, then probably not. It just dependson how it was worded and if you were up front about it when signing the lease.

  • Equal Opportunity Housing laws prevent landlords for making rental decisions and policies that discriminate based on race, religion, children, service animals, citizenship status, etc. SUPER illegal.

  • I live in Oregon and we have the equal housing rights, you have renters rights there should be a book with ALL your renters rights at a local library. I believe it is extremly illeagal to kick you out of your house because of children. Unless you signed a contract good luck.
