Can A Landlord Make Rules That Are Not In My Lease Or Change Existing Rules?

A landlord can make rules and regulations as to use of the premises which apply fairly to all tenants. Any rule must relate to convenience, safety or welfare of tenants, and tenants must have notice of such rules. If a new rule changes your lease in a material way, you will not be subject to the rule unless you consent to it in writing.
