    Violation of lease?

    My lease said that if I had someone move in I had to notify management and pay a little more each month. Now that I have a woman moving in with me they are telling me that she's been here for months and I violated my lease agreement and have to pay back rent for the time we were only dating and she stayed over. It was only a few times a week. What should I do?

    You should try explaining the situation to them, telling them that previously she was only a casual visitor and agree to pay rent from the time she moved in.

    I think your landlord is wrong on this one. Spending the night and living together are two different things. You shouldn`t have to pay back rent when she only spent the night. You should call renters rights in the phone book.
