A: The fact that his visa expired does not affect his ability to enter into a legally binding contract or to assert certain rights (for example, under the Fair Labor Standards Act). The lease is a contract that he can enter into.

However, he should contact an immigration lawyer immediately to go over his case. That is a serious issue that needs legal counsel.

A: Whether you are able to put him on the apartment lease is up to the management of the apartment.
