You are correct that you are owner occupied, but a complaint can still be filed against you. Your defense would be that you are covered under an exemption of law. WV also has its own FHA to watchout for.
The FHA and WVFHA does not discriminate between a tenant who is authorized and one who is not.
But the request has been made, and it's up to you to proceed with a workable plan for both yourself and tenants, or issue notice that the lease is not being renewed. That's why you should consult an attorney just to cover the bases as you wanted to do. Sometimes little simple things blow up real big, be prepared.
