Whether the mom agrees to the eviction is remained to be seen...I am speaking with her this evening. Initially, she wanted to avoid the confrontation altogether. But, I may be able to persuade her to choose her daughter over a stranger.
Also, no, the threat was not reported to the police.
Also, her rent is due tomorrow. If she does not pay the rent and is notified that she has a certain time to pay, would she (the mother) have grounds to evict her sooner, to bypass the 30 day notice?
Correct, there was never a written agreement. Initially my friend invited this girlfriend into the home with the mother's consent. She decided to pay an informal rent for letting her stay in the house.
She has been consisting paying this informal rent for 7 months at 30 day intervals, sometimes cash, sometimes a check. This informal rent would "informally" be due tomorrow. There were a couple of months where she paid no rent at all. Again, it was completely informal.
