Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are you all 3 on the lease for the house?
Or did this person move in after or before you did?
Will this person agree to leave voluntarily?
Ok, if the other person moved in after you, then legally you are their landlord and they are your tenant. You are a tenant to the landlord/owner and this person is a subtenant to you. But in a situation like this, it would be best to simply tell the person that you didn't think it was working out and give them a 60 day written notice to vacate. This is required in CA for tenancies over a year. I don't know that I would mention the other person, just that it isn't working out and give them the 60 day notice.
