  • Firstly, you beg him enough and when he refused then report him to the police 

    Am sure the matter will settle either he will return your money or still allow you to stay at that house as a tenant 

    About your visitor no how matter the strictness of your landlord and even when you still owe him money you have to use three months extra before he can send you out of his chamber

  • I might want to oppose that instruction given to you by the landlord but there is actually nothing you can do because his the owner of the house and he can give any instruction at any fucking time so is either you beg him just for this last chance or you tell your friend to go back to his state or you pack out

  • Best thing to do is to go and meet a lawyer cause you can't confront him physically knowing he is the owner of the house you are living, but he is decisions are not just proper, how can he say he doesn't want to tolerate visitors in his house, please take him to court, so that the case would be resolved, what kind of a thing is that?

  • But wait ooo was there rules or condition layed before entering the house? Because I see no reason why your landlord will stop you from bringing friends and infact you've paid for his house and he has no right to tell you what you should do and what you should not do.

  • If he says he is mad, you too should show him madness, normally he ought to give u a quit notice but he didn't ,tell him that you won't leave until you use up your rent,and that if he's not satisfied with that he should take you to court....he will lose

  • Collect your remaing payment back and get a law practitioner that can look into the matter, in law the landlord would give a 6months maximum to you to move out. So, by collecting your remaining payments back you'll have good 6 months to spend without paying a dime and you should get house within that time.

  • I guess this matter should be done with ease. If he refuses to allow your visitor to stay in just tell to give you back your money, if he proves deaf ears to your request report the matter to court because he can't just interfere into your privacy.

  • If your landlord as you to pack out of is house first of all you beg him and ask him to forgive you if he refuse don he should give you back your money and give you time to pack out ,if he refuse to give you time to pack out than he should wait for your rent to expired

  • There would have been terms and conditions before you rented the appartment at first and if it has been part of the rules of the house before then you should just follow the order and pack out or tell your friend about that and let your friend go back to his state or find another accommodation for him till you resolve the matter, then you can went to the landlord and explain the reason why you accommodate your friend and the situation of all about the visit. With this I believe all case shall be settled...

  • Hmmmm this is very demn, friend I will like to advise to check if there was a way u stood against his rules in the compound or maybe he told u that before u pack in and u agree on that...later u re now going against his rules, that means the fault is probably from all u need to do is to plead with me, but he ignores ur apologies then go ahead nd ask him to refund u ur balance and u go off...than u.

  • What really happened? He can not just ask you to vacate his house with out no cause? Did the agreement states that one should not have visitors that will stay over one week? Well I will advise you to plead with him. If he refused he have to give you six months to enable you look for accommodation else where.

  • If I were you I won't take the house in the first place, with all this terms and conditions. Which means your family members can not come from a far distance to visit you, just because of your landlord's rules and regulations. You've made a mistake by renting it in the first time. Let him refund your remaining balance and you pack out.

  • Is that in the agreement before now? if  it was not in the agreement the Landlord has no right whatsoever to to give you quit notice,what you need to do to inform human right authorities and if it was in the agreement that visitors are not allowed to stay for long you just have to plead and explain the situation of your friendnto him

  • Did he gave you a rule not to bring visitors home or that your visitor must not sleep over? If he did, then that means you're guilty. But if otherwise, then the landlord is wrong for telling you to move out of his house.

  • The issue is in two ways.

    1. When you wanted to rent the house, was there that kind of agreement between the both of you that you shouldn't being visitors home? 

    If the a answer is yes, then you're guilty.

    But if its no, then you have to fight for your right.

  • Were you told about this terms and conditions before packing iin before ?if not then,if he want you to pack and leave his house then he should refund your money and give you time to look and get another apartment before you are going to leave his house

  • Your landlord cannot do anything. There are legal proceedings to these things which you can advise him to follow up strictly. And if he hasn't warned you before or if you has informed and pleaded with him before  the visit , I do not think he will be this hostile with you .

  • There's no problem let him refund you, then you can pack if you wish

    One can not have your money and still dictate for you how you should live your life. You gave him money and you didn't monitor him on how he should spend the money.

    If you know your rights and you would like to use them please try to legally use them okay.

  • Categorically speaking, he can't send you packing. If he doesn't want you to receive visitors at night, he should have told you when you were signing the TENANCY AGREEMENT. But with the look of things at this moment, he he sends you packing, he must refund your full house rent, and if he doesn't, take the issue to court.

  • Well you broke his rule 

    your landlord said no overnight visitors 

    though your visitor might have thought you don’t want him to come if you told him your landlord doesn’t want overnight visitors 

    just start packing your load or you plead with your landlord 

    - Durodola Oreoluwa - 2019-09-29 08:30:29 Quote

  • I think before you packed in to the house there was a tenant agreement form you signed. Please check the agreement form if it was not mentioned in the form as the rules then you have to let him know that that was not the agreement of both of you.

    - Ukaha Edith - 2019-09-29 08:35:24 Quote

  • The best thing you can do is to walk up to your landlord and talk to him about about the visitor you are about to have then you should be able to deduce at something meaningful he will have his reasons for passing the rule and it best if you talk to him.

  • I understand the landlord is trying to protect his tenants.. I guess you comply with him because he is the owner of the House, by so doing will make you last longer in his jouse ..for that of your friend coming from abroad I think you talk to him about the  landlord's policy and try persuade him to be in an hotel for two weeks he wanna spend here

  • If that was in the the terms and conditions before you became a tenant. Then apologize to him and make amends but if not you have the right to stay there for the next 3 months and look for accommodation elsewhere.

  • Dont mind those who are saying you should show him madness at all..Why will you abuse him,is the house your house?....You have nothing to do than pleading to him...If he is angry,you be gentle so you can see this solve till you see another house.

  • If your landlord I telling you this now after you just renewed your rent, then your landlord must be a theif and wants to use it as a means for earning more money.

    Sorry for being judgmental, ask him to refund your rent, and moreover if this was not included in your agreements, why bring it up after you renewed your rent. Just tell him to pay you back and find another apartment

    - Oluwatobi John - 2019-09-29 14:11:51 Quote

  • I think you will have to look for a new apartment because how will you be staying in a house where you pay your rent and won't be allowed to bring in visitor what if is your sibling that came calling so you will have to deny him entry into your own home. Ask him to give you sometime to look for a new placed

    - Adegbemileke Alex - 2019-09-29 14:25:39 Quote

  • Let's say there was an agreement that you shouldn't bring visitors in to that house,then you shouldn't have renewed the rentage fee at the first place, but now that you've renewed it and the landlord said u can't bring visitors,then you will have to do what the landlord want because you already made a mistake by paying at the first place

    - Sulaimon Abiodun Hamzah - 2019-09-29 15:21:52 Quote

  • The best thing for you is to get another apartment, why will you be living a place you cannot bring in visitor. Just tell him to give you time to get another house and collect your balance .

    - Omowumi Alabi - 2019-09-29 15:49:37 Quote

  • You really need to explain to that your friend that, they are rules in your compound not to let spike live in the house maybe the landlord only allow 1 person to live in a flat, so you really needs to abide by those rules, if you are a landlord and you have rules like that trust me you will want all your tenants to follow that rules and all landlords who have rules like that know the typical reworks for that, you have to go to your landlord and explain things to him like a father and son get a landlord - tenants relationship with him and he might not say you should pack anymore.

  • To me there is no way your landlord should tell you the kind of people or the number of people that will occupy the room which you have paid for as far as there was no memo to back it up. So i think the law should take it cause if he persist to listen yo you.

  • There's this saying that goes does, "where there no rules there's no crime "

    Before you packed inside your landlord must have told you not to bring visitors into his house, if he did then house broke the law. 

    And as for the visitors who's in you house, I advise you explain to your landlord your visit is just a traveler who needs accomodatoon for a short period of time.. If your landord agree.... Goodluck.

  • Oh wow! When you were moving into the house initially, did he state that as part of the rules or terms and conditions of you renting the house, you aren't allowed to bring in visitors to spend the night? If he didn't state that then he has no right to send you packing.

    - Anuoluwapo Imoro - 2019-09-29 17:50:32 Quote

  • I see no reason why you shouldn't be allowed to bring in friends.. Does he want you to be a loner.  Ask him why if he doesn't give you a good excuse then tell him its either he allows you or gives you your money and if he doesn't do any then sue him.

  • If you still love the house the meet with your landlord privately and pleaded with him, tell him the truth about your visitor and promised him that nothing will miss within the area, he may accept but pray before approaching him.

  • Landlord issue are so powerful at times, what the agreement between you and your landlord before did you agree with him that you are not going to be bringing visitors in when you first rent the house?? Because don't know why landlord will be fighting you because of you have visitors

  • It's alright but you have to be sincere with people and play along with rules and regulations guiding a particular area.

    If you as a man or otherwise welcomed a friend of opposite gender and the land Lord has warned you concerning it, that will be deliberate rebellion.

    Please explain to him your situation if otherwise, as a human being, he might consider you. If he insist, claim your right but six months notice.

  • You paid your rent 3months ago and he now said you should pack out of his house because you brought in a visitor, that's very strange. First of all, apologize to him, but if he refuses, then he should refund part of the money back, then he should give you time to get another house before you pack. Some Landlords are wicked, so you should be prayerful.

  • It's better to always inquire about some rules or principles some landlord give to their tenants and if it's suitable for you, you go ahead and stay and if it's not, you know you have to continue your search. On a normal instance, it's not a crime to invite your friends to your home except they become nuisance,maybe disturbing the peace of the compound and making others uncomfortable.

    - Samuel Anthony - 2019-09-29 20:06:56 Quote

  • I think on the side to avoid trouble you should find somewhere else. On the basis of the landlord correcting you not to bring friends and letting them stay over if that wasn't discussed when the accommodation was arranged then the landlord is at fault.

    - Fadele Ayodeji - 2019-09-29 20:48:26 Quote

  • Please o, were you told if all this conditions before you paid your rent cos I've never heard of something like this before.... So none of your relatives can come and greet you again... Just treat the issue with patience or probably find somewhere else

  • Now first of all I want you to know that there is what we call agreement , if you and your landlord did sign agreement about what you can do and not do in your house then all I will advice you to do is go meet him and talk to him one on one and explain things to him that its just two weeks and the friend is out but if you never signed an agreement about the dos and dont of your stay then I will advice you to get a lawyer for yourself as soon possible ! Thanks and God bless NNU forum!

  • Nawa oo tjis is serious 

    How will u be giving conditions to your tenant that paid you money for an apartment 

    Since you have rented it you have right to do what you wnat but if he insists pack out and collect your money cased closed

  • A property lawyer can understand this issue in case you have not been binded into any agreement. But if there is a term and condition applied then you still need to make your landlord understand the situation using arbitrary means.

  •   I think he gave you the terms and conditions before you packed in, if eventually he did my dear don't allow visitors in to spend a night . But if he didn't, you have stand your ground. You aren't packing out but if you want to, he has to give you some time. 

      As for your friend spending weeks, I think you should explain to your landlord, engage him on a Father and Daughter talk. Definitely he has a conscience and will understand.

  • Wow this is one of the reasons I don't like houses were the landlord is living within or jobless because this is likely the case here,well if there was any discussion or agreement on ni visitors in his compound before you moved in then u have to bear and follow according to his terms but if there isn't then if u want to move strongly make your wish known get your refund and get a place of better peace and freedom

  • I don't think your landlord has the right to dictate whether you are to welcome visitors in your apartment or not, hence you've fully paid your rent you have every right to enjoy freedom in the house, it's not dictated anywhere in the constitution

  • In my opinion, as long as you didn't bring someone of questionable character,your landlord has no right to prohibit your visitors from spending the night with you.After all, you paid rent for the said house in the first place.It's more or less your property for the duration that your rent lasts.

  • He shouldn't be rude now , its unfair , after all you paid for the said house so why would he be so selfish , as far as the person in question is not bad or a type of wild person he has no right to put up that law , if it hose too far take him to Court or report to the police right away ...
