Cana landlord dictate who you have as a guest?

I live in an adults only RV park. However, my daughter wants to come visit for a few weeks but landlord says because she’s 13 that she can’t. Is this legal?

Whether or not your landlord can dictate who you have as a guest at the rental you have is dictated primarily by the presumed written lease that you have for the premises. As such I suggest that you carefully read the written lease if you have one in that it controls the obligations owed to you by the landlord and vice versa.

If the lease is silent regarding the timing that you have for a guest that you can have guests no matter what. If the lease limits the guests, the limitation needs to be reasonable in that the rules at the RV park probably do not want minors living there on a full time basis.

An absolute prohibition on your daughter's visit would be void against public policy under the laws of all states in this country.
