i live in new brunswick and a friend of mine just moved into an apartment a few days ago ( he did not sign any sort of lease either) and today his landlord told him out of the blue that he is only allowed to have 1 person in his apartment and that after 10pm he is not allowed to enter the apartment building to go to his apartment. so my question is .. is the landlord allowed to stop him from entering the building to get to his residence after a certain time ???

it's the first time i'm hearing about this .. lolll i live in an apartment building and my landlord has always told me i can have whoever as long as they aren't too noisy and also that if i come home late just don't make noise as to disturb the other ppl. which is understandable . but for him to not be allowed to enter his own apartment after 10pm is weird. i mean what if he works until 1 am ? hes gunna have to sleep outside in his car . that's ridiculous. ive checked everywhere for information but can't seem to find any .

Doesnt sound right or legal,you might want to get in touch with the cities tenants rights association. Probably something in here will point you in the right direction=

Send your friend this link to the NB landlord tenant act. I think the landlord is full of it.

The Residential Tenancies Act

Well, if he didn't sign any kind of rental agreement/contract, he's not a legal tenant. Why was there no contract? He has no rights. The LL could say to the court that he's a squatter.

Is this a room in a private home? or a rooming house?. while there maybe no official lease if its an apartment there is probably an expectation by the tenant that he will be free to come and go as he pleases.
heres how it works in Ontario=
Ontario Landlord and Tenant Law: No written lease--Am I in trouble?

I doubt the legal aspects of the issue would be much different in other parts of Canada.

Does the renter have an apartment with a separate entrance? Or is he renting a room in a house, and entering after a certain hour might disturb the home owner?

I find it odd that no lease was signed. This suggests to me that: (1) there aren't a lot of units in the building and (2) the owner can make up any rules he likes. No lease, no rules, no protection for either the tenant or the landlord. Not a great situation.

where i live its actually common for that, mostly all they do is give a receipt every month when the rent is paid so as someone mentioned in the comments the LL can't say hes a squatter as there's proof he pays rent there with the date, his name and the apartment number on the receipt and there is more than 8 apartments in the building.. i lived in alot of apartments here where there was nothing to sign all i got was a receipt when i paid the rent and a reciept when i paid a deposit.. and to answer everyone's question . its a bachelor apartment . not a rooming house or room . its within an apartment building. thanks everyone for the links also i will check them out ^_^ im in the process of trying to get my friend out of there. as since hes the new tenant hes being picked on. even getting blamed for things that are happening in the building when hes not even there. small towns are really horrible for these kinds of things. thanks everyone for the help

I'm just guessing here, but it sounds like the landlord is a bit paranoid and "off"... they have no business telling someone in a multi-unit building what hour they can come in or leave the building! What if your friend has a night shift job? Weird situation... your friend is definitely better off moving.
