How old do you have to be to live in an apartment alone?

(in the US) Living by yourself does not imply or confer independence or adulthood.

Living in an apartment implies that there will be some kind of lease, contract, or rental agreement. Most landlords will not want to sign a legal agreement with one who is a minor because contracts made with minors are legally un-enforceable, and many landlords simply do not wish to rent to young people.

If the other person is a minor child, you must put there name on the lease sort of like a dependent.
