Q: Can my property manager tell me who I can have babysitting my child?
My property manager told me my sister is not allowed on property. Even though she has done nothing wrong,. She watches my child usually at night an sometimes stays over night if I get home too late to bring her home. She has not broken any rules. And there are lost of other tenants that have people staying with them an people over all hours of the night. I don't know what she is giving me a hard time. Is she allowed to tell me I can't have her here but I can have other people just not her. Like I said she has broken no rules or done anything wrong. She is threatening to evict me if she sees her on the property I don't know what to do
A: The property manager is of the company who owns the property or just part of HOA? If he or she is part of the company, whether your sister staying in the property constitutes a breach of contract is a question of the lease. You can have a lawyer to review the lease for you. If he or she is just part of HOA, you can have your landlord to deal with them.
Bruce Alexander Minnick agrees with this answer
Although I haven't seen the written lease I am doubtful it contains any language that would allow your property manager to do this without some good cause.
However, if there is no written lease between you and the landlord/owner of the apartment they can evict you without having a reason.
