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. Even if you have a responsible adult sign the lease for you, you must be 18 years of age or emancipated by the court. 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.

Can people other than those on the lease agreement live in the apt.?

No, if another adult moves into the apartment, you must get permission from your landlord, and if he/she agrees, the other adult must be added to and then sign the lease. The landlord then has the right to increase your rent and to run a credit check on the other adult. If the other person is a minor child, you must put there name on the lease sort of like a dependent.
