I live in a 4 br house with roommates. One recently got married and moved out, so I decided I would rent his room and use it for my home office. I work remotely as a loan officer for a reverse mortgage company based in So Cal. My landlord now says it's not legal for me to use the room or any part of the house for my work purposes. I use my home office for phone calls and administrative purposes. I meet with clients in their homes, not mine. He says there are insurance/zoning laws which prohibit me from doing this. I don't believe this is true. Everyone has a home office these days, including my landlord, who lives about 20 miles away. Any qualitified advice and/or resources would be greatly appreciated so I can give him an educated response. Thank you.

Well , yes there are zoning laws and could be correct . You can check with the city to see what the zoning laws of the country of residence . So if you can review your lease had a clause that can say no to home businesses . If not the person you talk to the owner of the building ? If you do not talk to them ...
