Thank you for your follow up. Without the written lease, the tenant has a month to month tenancy and the landlord can terminate such tenancy with a 30 day written notice without any reason and if the tenant doesn't move out upon expiration of the 30 day, then the landlord will be able to file an eviction case and to legally evict such month to month tenant. I wish you the best of luck!
