Can the landlord limit visitors to the tenant’s rental unit?

Generally, a landlord generally cannot limit viitors as long as theydo not disturb other

residents or violate the lease. However, a tenant should be carefulnot to have the same visitor

consider the visitor an unauthorized occupant. Certainly, a visitor should not get mail or other
