    Free advise, that will never work because it's too small for 2 people. Those 2 people will end up enemies.

    Two people can occupy any sized apartment unless the lease or the law says otherwise. Sorry, but you have to get rid of your roommate.

    Hello

    You said "the lease if it stated that only 1 person can live there" so that pretty much tell us that you know 2 people can not occupy the apartment

    Sure 2 people can live there but it'll be real tight. The landlord could terminate the lease for this but might just let it go if nobody complains.

    Of course. Violating the lease can cause you to be evicted from the premises.

    They are in violation of the lease, so sure they can be kicked out.

    Yes the landlord can evict you for breaking your lease.

    Yes and Yes. You have a contract for the space, not all apartments are the same.

    If the tenant is in violation of the lease, the landlord gives them notice to cure the violation or leave. If the tenant refuses, the landlord can sue to evict the tenant.

    Two people can share if it's not stipulated in the lease that it's for one. But yes, the lease can be terminated if you break that stipulation.
