Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: I'm not a Landlord, but a person who let a woman & her children stay with me due to domestic violence. Her children are so violent that they attack my dog & my young children. She's only be here a couple weeks. I want her to leave, but I don't know if I've gotten myself into a legal bind. I'm trying to get her to go to a DV shelter, but so far no luck. What can I do legally. No agreement was signed & no money had been paid by her.

Answer: If they do not leave when requested you may consider contacting the police to have them removed.
