questions & answers

Question: My wife and I recently rented an apartment and let our 17 year old daughter live there. Our intention to have her as the inhabitant was expressed to the property manager and her name was included onthe rental agreement. Are we within our rights to let our 17 year old daughter inhabit the apartment that we, her parents, rented?

Answer: Unless there is language in the rental agreement expressly prohibiting a minor from residing unless accompanied by an adult it should not be a problem.
