The common GLVAR Lease Agreement definitely has a section or two about who lives on the property and there is a section the clarifies how many days a person can stay in before they are no longer visitors, and it actually has and addition price per night for anyone staying longer than that period.

Actual number of days for guests, lease amount, lease term, etc., etc., are all negotiable terms. There is no norm, saying otherwise is against anti-trust laws.

They can include any provisions, but you have a right to accept or object. When you sign is binding contract. Also if you already sign you can try counter offer on that provision. If you are working with agent ask your agent to do that for you, if not and want somebody to represent you -find attorney or hire the agent.

If it is not discriminatory, it is not illegal for a landlord to forbid overnight guests. Most contracts indicate that guests cannot stay longer than 14 days.
