Do I have to sign a lease
I have seen some post about a landlord having a ‘right’ to ‘ask’ you to put an occupant (roommate) on the lease, but no mention of the legality of doing this. I have the right to ‘keep and bear arms’, yet the government routinely restricts, denies, diminishes my ‘right’ to do so on a daily basis.
So my questions are:
If I am staying with someone, (due to being out of work) do I have to be on the lease LEGALLY. If so what is the time period before that kicks in? I am not paying any rent, obviously. I am sure that I don’t have the credit rating to get an apartment right now, either. So it would seem to me that this flies in the face of a landlord not being allowed ‘ to choose your roommate’.
If the lease has already been converted to month to month; then would we have to get a brand new lease, or would the old one apply?
If the lease does not mention ‘other occupants’, would it be legal to refuse to sign the lease?
