Resolved Question:

Suppose I enter into a month to month rental contract with a divorced woman to rent my one bedroom house smaller than a two car garage. After a month she moves in a boyfriend and three school aged children. I advise the man on two ocasions that he cannot stay there. He advises my tenant both times. They refuse to move. I contact the sheriff twice. I am advised to file an eviction notice. Did the deputies act correctly or were these unauthorized guests trespassers?

The deputies acted correctly. The police do not need to investigate tenants, their leases, etc. to determine who can stay at a residence legally and who cannot. The police can wait for an eviction order in order to evict people; otherwise, the police may have liability. I am sorry.

I hope that I have helped you, answered all of your questions,
and that I have provided you with useful information.
Please ask more questions if I have not answered all of your
questions.

Please be aware that my answer is not legal advice,
it is merely information. The only way that I am legally
responsible for your legal rights is if you have signed
a written retainer agreement with my law firm.
