Customer Question

Was letting friend stay in rental that I have for free if she just payed her own utilities and water bill for the 2 unit duplex . This unit is in foreclosure and and a year has gone by and I was approved for a short sale but when I tried to give her a short notice to get out she went to legal aid and they told her what I was doing was against the law. I never turned off anything but sha says I was intimidating her. She still lives there and I just stopped all contact and leave her alone. If she filed a lawsuit can I file bankruptcy and would it help ?

Can you tell me what state you are in?

Have you given her any type of written notice to terminate her tenancy?

Is there some reason why you don't evict her through the courts?
