Illustration for article titled Should Your Landlord Dictate Who Ends Up In Your Bed?

Has your landlord ever banned you from having your significant other sleep over, and if so, was it legal? Depends where you live, but in the case of one redditor who rents a basement from a home owner who told him his girlfriend wasn't welcome, it's against the law — probably. (In Alberta, where he lives, tenant's rights vary depending on your lease and how many rooms you share with your landlord.)

If your lease doesn't specify rules for overnight guests, you're likely in the clear, but it's probably still best to broach the topic with your landlord and/or roommates before you move in if you'll be sharing close quarters/thin walls. Awkward conversation? Maybe, but at least you won't end up feeling slut-shamed on the regular.
