how do you get your girlfriend evicted when she does not pay rent and you want to maintain an amciable relationship?
Thank you for posting your question to JA/Pearl. Legal questions often take time for research or I may be offline so please be patient, I will reply.I doubt that you can do both. If she will not move, you will have to evict her assuming that you own the property. I doubt that she will be very amicable after that. She has the same rights as s tenant even though she has not been paying any rent. You can give her a 30 day notice to move. This has to be in writing, state her name, the address and be signed by you. To prove that she was properly served, the letter need to be given to her by a third party.Then if she does not move you can go to the local magistrate court and file for an eviction. Since the laws on eviction vary so much from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and even judge to judge, you need to go ahead and stop by your local court and the clerk should have the forms and instructions you can pick up since this is fairly standard.I would anticipate that the next 30 days would not be too calm so be very careful not to get into an argument or she might call the police and have you arrested. That is often standard procedure in these cases. Then the judge will issue a no contact order and you cannot go back to your own house.lwpat41093.043278044
