Whether the landlord may charge more depends on two things: (1) what your lease says and (2) the laws of your state, and you didn’t mention in what state you live. In most states, what it comes down is what the lease says. If the lease says that you can't have additional persons living there, then you'll need to play by the landlord's request for the additional money if you want her to waive that condition in the lease. Also, if the lease says that you can have additional people living there but your rent goes up by $25 for each one, then the landlord can charge you. So, start with your lease. What does it say about having additional people living with you?
