Eviction

questions & answers

Question: My son asked to move his camper to my home. I adamantly told him NO. He knocked on my door 3 days ago and had moved it on my property while I was sleeping. He is not allowed on my property anyway due to his drug use. Now I have people in on out of his trailer buying dope. I don't know what to do to make him leave! Do I call the police or do I have to file an eviction notice on him? I am afraid of him as he has threatened both my life and to burn down my house if I didn't let him park it! I reported the threats to the police the week before when I told him no. Desperate

Answer: An unwanted guest who refuses to leave another person’s property may be removed from the property by a law enforcement officer at the request of the property’s owner or lawful tenant. An unwanted guest need not be formally evicted. Only a tenant who was granted access to the property under the terms of a rental agreement (whether written or oral) has a right to evicted through a formal court process.
