Would I start with a 3 day notice to quit? please give me a sample of this.
If she does no move out after that do I go to the Unlawful Detainer?
If she contests the unlawful detainer do I have to let her stay in the house while it goes to trial?What about the abusive behavior? Does that give me any grounds to have her removed? Or do I have any other recourse to make her end this?
I understand the 3 day notice is not required but it seems like it would be helpful. Since rent is not involved can I have it read:
THREE DAY NOTICE TO QUIT
I gave her the 3 day notice to quit and she didnt move out
I spoke to an attorney about the unlawful detainer, who said that because she has been living in my home for several months she has legal rights as a tenant; and that a 3 day notice to quit isnt legal, and that i have to give a 30 day notice to voluntarily vacate. Please clarify This is in Los Angeles CA.
It appears she is willing to negotiate, to avoid legal action, she is asking for some time to move out.
Would it be possible to create some sort of agreement in which she waives her rights of residency and agrees to move out by a certain date? would this be enforceable, or is my best course of action to go ahead with the unlawful detainer?
If such an agreement would be enforceable can you suggest or point to any language that should be used?
