Hi

Your landlord can not force you to move simply because you are having another child.

Familial Status is a protected status and discrimination on that basis is prohibited.

However the local zoning laws relative to habitation may not allow siblings of different genders to occuoy the same bedroom or their could be other limitations on the number of people allowed per number of bedrooms.
These would be local ordinances that you can verify at the township.

Good Luck and congratulations

That all depends on your current lease and your landlord. If your lease expires this month and your landlord does not want to renew it or has raised the price and you can't afford it, then yes you would have to move. If you are willing to sign another lease or go month-to-month and your landlord is fine with it, then no you don't have to move.

Unfortunately, being pregnant, giving birth, and having children is something that happens every day and does not entitle you to any special treatment in regards to legal contracts.

Best of luck with your new baby!
