Ok my hubby and I are going on a cruise in a couple of weeks and my mom is coming to stay with us for a couple of weeks. Well I went to the office where we are renting our home from and the lady told me that my mom has to fill out an application and pay for a criminal background I can understand they need to do this to cover their asses but damn she's not staying a year or anything like that oh and they need a copy of her pic id if they raise our rent bc of the two weeks she's here that bs ugh has anyone heard of this sorta thing?

 never heard of this....... doesn't sound right to me... i mean the background check is fine but the extra charge is NOT.  I'd just lie and tell your landlord that your mom wont be there.. idk..

That is ridiculous, check your lease to see if there is any mention of a guest policy

 You should be able to have visitors at your discretion. That's the dumbest thing I have ever heard of. (OK, probably not the dumbest)

Check your lease.  I know most places I've lived said we could have visitors up to two weeks without having to let them know.

No doesnt sound right and there should be no extra charges ...hell two of you will be gone for a week so that equals out if you ask me! Sounds like shit a hotel might use...your not living in a motel are you? ....

If anyone stays here with/without us for more than 14 days, they HAVE to be added to our rent. And they can only stay a total of 14 days in a 31 or 45 day period. Cant remember which. But we are in an income based apartment.
