Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney whowill try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone whocan. There may be a slight delay in myresponses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are they under a fixed term written lease or are they month to month?
Ok, if you have a life estate, then you are the landlord and you can terminate his tenancy with a written 15 day notice. Then if he won't leave, once that period expires, you can file a formal eviction action in court and get a judgment and a writ against him that the sheriff would execute to force him to leave.
That takes about 3-4 weeks after the 15 day notice expires, but he has no defense to the eviction, so it is just a matter of giving him the 15 day and then filing the formal eviction action in court to get him out..
