  The law varies from state to state, so the first thing you need to do is to read the lease and all accompanying documents carefully. For example in the state of New Jersey you can read the following.

  NO GUEST OF THE TENANT MAY OCCUPY THE DEMISED PREMISES FOR MORE THAN 10 DAYS IN A TWELVE MONTH PERIOD UNLESS A TENANCY APPLICATION IS FILLED WITH THE LANDLORD AND ACCEPTED BY THE LANDLORD. OCCUPANCY BY A GUEST BEYOND THE ABOVE PERIOD SHALL CONSTITUTE A BREACH
