Living with the man you love is sometimes a joyous experience. You share expenses, laughs, save money and get to spend more time with each other. Sometimes events take place that make you decide you don't want to live with him anymore. You break up, he turns out to be messier than you thought or he's just hard to live with. Maybe he stopped paying his share of the rent. You decide you're not going to put up with it anymore and you want to evict him.
Consult the laws in your state on evicting a tenant who didn't sign a lease. These vary state-by-state. Calling your county courthouse or consulting an attorney is the recommended plan of attack.
Give him a written 30-day notice, in person, saying that you are terminating his stay for not helping with expenses, or just not being a good roommate or tenant. This notice is called a "notice to cure or quit" which gives him the right to stay if he fixes the problematic behavior. The other option is to give him a notice that gives him 90 days to leave, whether he stops the behavior or not. This is the more definite route, but it takes longer.
Communicate to him that you are going to use legal methods to evict him if he stays longer than it says in the notice.
Go to your state's Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs to enter your address, either online or by phone if he doesn't honor the notice to avoid rent-control regulations. Under some rent control laws, the rent is lower if rented to couples or families rather than single people. The problem is, if your boyfriend moves out, you are no longer a couple or family living on the property. Some landlords use these guidelines to keep places quiet and desirable even though the rent they collect is slightly less than other properties.
Find a landlord-tenant lawyer to give you the Petition and Notice of Petition papers you need to evict someone. Go to the court clerk for the papers if there isn't a lawyer available. Ensure that someone is at least 18 years of age -- other than you -- and gives the papers to your boyfriend five to 12 days before court.
Turn in the papers no more than three days after they have been distributed to your boyfriend.
Appear in court for a judgment if the boyfriend decides to fight the eviction. The court will decide who gets to keep the dwelling, and who must leave. The court will give you a Warrant of Eviction if you win the case. This notice gives him seven to 30 days (depending on the judgment) to vacate the dwelling. More time could be granted if he has children or a disability.
Provide a copy of the Warrant of Eviction to the local police department. Validate that a police officer gives the warrant to your boyfriend. He will have 72 hours to vacate your home or 30 days to leave your mobile home. Call the police department if he doesn't leave by that time.
