* ''GreenCard'': Guy and girl have to pretend to be in a relationship so she can get her dream-condo (which is couples-only), and in return he gets the titular Green Card. Somebody suspects that they're faking it, and HilarityEnsues as they have to keep the tangled web of lies from collapsing. Needless to say, they wind up ''actually'' falling in love.
* Mr. Shickadance, AceVentura's landlord, does not allow animals in his apartment complex. Ace, of course, has a whole lot of animals at his place, though he hides them quite cleverly.

* The TropeMaker is ''ThreesCompany''. Its reputation as being a fountain for {{Idiot Plot}}s is largely based on the only part of the show anyone remembers -- that Jack has to pretend to be gay so the landlord doesn't realize the apartment is a den of sin. You'd think Janet and Chrissy would just avert this entire conflict by getting a female roommate, but it would seem that Jack's cooking really is that good.
* In ''{{Spaced}}'', the two main characters are pretending to be in a relationship in order to rent a flat for a couple, [[spoiler: although late in the series it is revealed that "professional couple only" never was a requirement to rent the flat but a mistake from someone working at the newspaper the ad was published in.]] She's mostly upset about them lying to her about it for so long.
* In ''BosomBuddies'', the main characters had to pretend to be women.

* [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Cruella De Vil]] doesn't care about how she does it as long as she evicts the Dearlys from the farm but one of her attempts included proving they had more animals than the number allowed by their contract. (101 plus the farm animals)

* In ''Series/AgentCarter'' Peggy's landlord is obsessed with the "virtue" of her tenants, evicts a tenant at breakfast in front of everyone for having a male visitor in her room, and is apparently rather good at spotting it given the man climbed in through the second floor window. Espionage, destruction of room property, smuggling of stolen food, and murder seem to be harder for her to spot.

* Parodied in ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' Season 1, where the heroes are forced to audition for "Midtown Cowboys", a show where the titular cowboys must hide their herd (of one cow) from a landlord who constantly suspects that they're hiding a cow in their apartment. Featherly's TagLine is the page quote.
** The TagLine of the sitcom itself deserves recognition, both for being an ExpositoryThemeTune and stupidly catchy. You wouldn't think the single line "They're probably hiding a cow!" could even be MADE into an EarWorm, but the evidence suggests otherwise.

* On one ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short, Tweety and Sylvester are being hidden by their respective owners in a hotel that doesn't allow pets. At the end, the manager asks all tenants to get rid of any animals in the premises... and is trampled by a whole zoo's worth.
