The owner has a right to expect you follow the rules of your rental agreement. For example, you certainly should pay your rent on time and keep the apartment or house clean. And you should not bother other tenants with noisy parties or a television set turned up full blast.

In addition, you should use the apartment or house only as it is meant to be used. For example, don’t cook if there is no kitchen.

The owner also has the right to expect you to fix anything you damage. For instance, if you break a lamp in a furnished apartment, you should repair or replace it.

If you do not do these things, the owner may have a good reason to ask you to move. And if you do not move, the owner can sue to evict you.
