Ask a Landlord-Tenant Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Do you have individual written eases with each individual tenant so you have a lease with just this problem tenant on it?
Or was this just a verbal lease agreement?
Is the roommate supposed to pay rent to you and you pay the landlord the entire amount?
Ok, then what you have is oral month to month leases with each tenant and you are their landlord.
So to evict the one problem tenant, you would need to first start out by giving them a written demand notice to pay rent or vacate. If the tenant doesn't immediately pay the rent due, then you can file an eviction complaint in the Superior Court, Special Civil Part. Normally the court date is at least 10 days later. You appear and explain why the court should rule in your favor and order the eviction. If you are successful, the judge will order the eviction and a warrant of removal. After 3 days the constable will serve the warrant and 3 days later you can have the constable put them out.
