How many people can live here, and what is the rules for guests?
If you’re planning to live with roommates or have a large family, make sure you comply with the tenant occupancy standards of the apartment before renting.
Most buildings don’t allow more than two people per bedroom of an apartment, including children. Also, if you plan to have frequent or long-term guests at your rental, ask questions about the landlord’s guest policy, make sure to check what your lease agreement says first.
“Some agreements allow for additional guests for an express period of time, some require approval after a certain number of days, and some charge additional money after a certain number of days. The guest terms will affect whom and how long someone can stay in your place. Worst case is a long term guest turns into a violation of the lease agreement and the landlord seeks eviction.”
