Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Was the tenant paying the rent in cash?
Does mother want to proceed to evict the tenant since the 60 day notice is up or does she want to give him 60 days more?
Who is the owner of the property, you or mother?
Ok, then his check is his receipt and he is just using that as an excuse for not having moved out. So at this point, if the 60 days is up that mother gave the tenant, she can file a formal eviction action in court to get a judgement to force the tenant to move out or have the sheriff put him out.
The fact that he can't find a place he likes is not mother's problem. He had 60 days to do so, and if he hasn't made other living arrangements, then he will have to do so quickly or face eviction.
So you/mother wouldn't be under any legal obligation to give him another 60 days unless you simply wanted to do so and can proceed immediately with an Unlawful Detainer action since the proper 60 day notice has expired.
As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...
