It sounds like this could be a scam. Ask the caller to send you written verification that you owe any money, and insist they text it to your phone number, and don't give out ANY of your own personal info.

My property manager says it is in the lease
answered on May 25, 2020
If you are talking about a guest staying with you, yes. A lot of leases do specify the limit to the amount of time a guest can stay. Usually it is a number of days in a given period of time, like "25 days per year" or "3 weeks every 6 months". Your first step needs to be to review your lease.
