Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and my goal is to answer your question and provide you excellent service.
Since your friend has been a month to month tenant for over 1 yr, she is legally entitled to 60 days notice from the landlord to terminate her tenancy.
Shutting off her electricity or taking any other action to force her to leave is legally prohibited and would subject the owners to civil liability to her for illegal eviction. She would be entitled to sue them and recover damages which could include punitive damages and attorney fees.
She can only be legally evicted through a forcible detainer action filed in the court and an order of possession executed by the sheriff.
If they shut off her electricity she can also call the police.
