questions & answers

Question: I let a friend stay with me in my new apartment, however she isn't listed on the lease. She paid rent one month out of the three months I've been there and paid utilities for the second month only. Can I ask her to leave immediately since she isn't paying rent but gets mail to my resident, or do I have to give her a notice?
