The landlord may not restrict the right of the tenant to invite people into the premises for business, family or personal reasons. However, the landlord may add reasonable rules and regulations regarding the tenant`s use of the premises to the lease. Further, the tenant may be responsible to the landlord if a guest of the tenant damages the landlord`s property.
The landlord may not restrict the right of tenants to organize a Tenant`s Association. Further, a landlord may not engage in any retaliatory conduct against his tenant for participating in a tenant`s association.
