Red Flag #5 – “I’m looking for a place for myself. I have a boyfriend but they do not live with me.” Sometimes people just aren’t ready to move in together, right? But what happens if they do move in together? The lease requires all occupants to be listed on the lease and guests who stay longer than 7 days can be considered unauthorized occupants. The danger in this situation is that the boyfriend has a criminal record, and the reason he is not also applying to rent the place is because they know the application will get rejected if he is on the lease.
