How will my landlord view my roommate?

Check Your Lease

A roommate may help you to save on living expenses, but may not please your landlord. Some landlords frown upon taking on a roommate, while others couldn't care less. Some will allow a roommate as long as you provide certain information about the person you choose.

Read the terms of your lease to determine your landlord's rules for roomates. Some leases may be silent on this issue. If your landlord includes rules applicable to roommates in your lease, be sure to follow the rules completely. In some locations, failure to follow a lease in its entirety could lead to eviction.
