questions & answers

Question: My friend has been living in a house that is owned by someone no longer able to care for herself.He was living in the residence helping the lady with taking care of the house and chores that needed to be done in exchange for rent. When the lady became sick and went to the hospital my friend was allowed stay and keep up the house. Before leaving the hospital she was deemed not able to make decisions or take care of herself. A fiduciary was appointed to handle all of her property and now he wants to put the house up for sale. He then ordered my friend out on the house in 2 days. Is that ok?

Answer: The answer to the question of whether it was lawful for your friend to be kicked out of the house will most likely depend upon whether or not a legally enforceable rental agreement (or other agreement) – whether written or oral – existed between your friend and the owner of the house, and what the terms and conditions of that agreement were. If your friend would like to know more about what his legal rights were/are, he would benefit from discussing the situation in detail with an attorney.
