I have lived in my unit for two months. Today my landlord told me my girlfriend was visiting too often and that she could no longer come to my unit. Can my landlord do this?
A landlord cannot limit a tenant’s visitounless they are distubing other tenants or
violating the terms of the lease. However, a tenant should be careful not to allow a visitor to stay
overnight too many times in a row because it mappear to the landlord that the visitor has

visits because he is prejudiced due to her race,color, religion, sex, national origin, family status,
or disability that is discrimination and violates the Fair Housing Act.
