Cost for additional people living with you?

So I was thinking if it is required by law to pay for an additional person living with you. Would you have a limit of people living in your home


Basically what I'm saying is if you invite a person in your home to live for maybe 6 months, would u have to pay for the person's rent. And let's say he's homeless

    If the landlord wants more money for additional people, it is his right to ask. Additional people mean more risk and more expenses. More water usage, more electricity, more wear and tear on the apartment.

    It makes no difference if he is homeless. If you want him to room with you, then he will not be homeless anymore, will he be?

    Cities limit the number of people that can rent an apartment. You should be fine with two people in a one bedroom. Children of the opposite sex must have their own bedrooms.

    You're only required to pay for children or possibly a disabled person in your case.

    There are places with cohabitation and boarding laws, that limit how many unrelated people you can have in your home.
