: My boyfriend's landlord says that I am living at his apartment, using water, etc. I stay over 2-3 nights/week. DON'T use any water, wash clothes, take a shower, etc. She is trying to restrict the number of days and hours that I can be at his apartment. I have my own apartment and do not live at his house. Does anyone know of any law regarding this issue of a landlord trying to limit visiting because she thinks I'm living there and believes it is morally wrong. How can she do this if he pays his rent every month?

If the apartment is in New York state, you could even move in with your boyfriend and the landlord could do nothing about it, under the roommate law (Real Property Law 235-f). If your boyfriend is the only one on the lease, he can have one roommate, plus the dependent children of the roommate.
