Can he do that if he hasnt charged me from the very begining? He knew i would be livin here with them i do not know what to do.

Answer: The landlord cannot change the amount of the payable rent without notice to the tenant, however dependent on what your lease your landlord may have reserved the right to attach a change to anyone who is not noted on the leasing agreement. Reread the lease to help fully understand what your rights are, you may also want to consider consulting with an attorney.
