I am sorry to hear about this situation. A landlord does not owe the tenant an explanation for terminating the lease in a month to month
lease. So one simply can give her a 30 days written notice (60 if she has lived there for a year or more, under Civil Code Section 1946.1b), and then once that notice runs out, she has to leave.
If she does not, she may be evicted. Actually, she can even be removed without a formal eviction
process. She is a lodger. While lodgers generally have the same rights as tenants, when the owner has given the lodger proper notice and the time has expired, the lodger has no further right to remain in the owner's house and may be removed as a trespasser.
