Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: I let my grandaughter live at my condo.She is to pay the rent there and after 4 months she still hasnt. I didnt make she sign a lease and now she will not move out. How do i get her out?

Answer: If the person in question is not on the lease, or not paying rent, they would not be considered a tenant, therefore, they are not protected under the landlord/tenant act. As a homeowner, or primary leaseholder, you could ask them to leave, and if they don’t, call the police and report them for trespassing. Additionally, a five day notice in writing demanding departure may solve the problem. As a last measure, file a Forcible Entry and Detainer proceeding in the Justice Court.
