My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.I am sorry for this dilemma. Can you tell me, are you parents "competent"...able to understand what is going on around them?
Thank youThat makes it more difficult. That is, if your parents are competent, but not willing to evict her? They may have a tough time forcing her to leave.Under the law, before they can force her to leave, they must give her notice, in writing, and at least 30 days to find a new place to live. If they try and remove her without providing this notice? They could be liable for wrongful eviction.So they would need to take the first step (and tell her she must leave)...since they own the home, they have the final say on who gets to stay there and when...however, because she has live there, they must give her written notice before they can force her to leave
This begs the question...what if they are not willing to evict ?Frankly that may mean she can continue to live in the home...generally speaking, if the homeowner is competent, the law assumes they have the ability to make their own decisions (including who lives in the home)That said, you could contact local law enforcement...if the sister is defrauding your parents, law enforcement can step in and remove her.
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
