A: If you have a written lease, it can control how many people can live within the unit. If there is no written lease, it is possible that the landlord cannot seek to restrict your daughter. I cannot speak to whether your boyfriend can restrict this as it would not be typical for him to have any legal say unless he was the tenant on the written lease.
