    Apartment Residents NFA in Ashland, Kentucky

    I just recieved a call from a close friend who lives in the Henry Clay Apartments in Ashland, Kentucky. Today there has been a sign posted at the lobby entrance prohibiting firearms (including residents). I'm looking for some documentation regarding apartment building residences being prohibited to protect themselves. Anything you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    A lot of states have gone with the "the owner and set the rules and as long as they inform you then you must follow them" type of attitude.
    Of course if you lived there prior to the posted sign, lease changes it would basically mean you could not take your side arm into the public sections of the building unless you had to pass through those areas to get to your residence.

    I am not a lawyer and this is just my interpretation.

    IANAL - Generally lease terms CANNOT be changed during the course of the lease.
    Suggest you run this by an attorney licensed to practice in your state.

    A couple of things I've picked up over the years.
    - The property owner or the one who holds the title is the owner de facto or the owner in fact.
    - Your friend is the owner de jure or the owner under the law.
    - A lease is a contract or an agreement between two parties where the de facto owner, in exchange for payment, grants the de jure owner certain things. All provisions must be agreeable to both parties and be legal.

    Now, and here's where your friend needs to read the contract's fine print, and, maybe, talk to an attorney. If there was nothing in the contract prohibiting firearms your friend may be able to sue, or threaten to, for breach of contract.

    A contract can't be changed in the middle of the term just because one party feels like it. The time to change a contract is before both parties agree to it.
