Hi! I believe I can be of help with this issue.
I can imagine how frustrating this situation must be for you. You have had enough and she's clearly now taking advantage of the situation. My concern, though, is that you not do anything impulsive that will get YOU in trouble instead of her.
You're asking a question that's a total gray area. An attorney can make the case for either side. So if it would ever get to court, it will depend on which of you brings an attorney to the court and on what the judge is like. Because the absence of money paid for rent is not by itself a proof that there is no legal tenant relationship. It has to do with the agreement made between you two.
So, while I might be completely ready to agree with you, if you'd call the police after Saturday to say you asked her to leave and gave her the 7 day notice as your houseguest, which is more than fair, they might or might not take her to a shelter. The record of police involvement is very spotty and is very case by case oriented. They make a judgment call on the spot.
The worst is if you damage her property in any way. That her goods were in your space is not good enough as a defense. So I want you to be careful here. Let me give you the link for what I think is very useful information by a judge in Denton County that will give you the rundown on this. There are some sections that aren't relevant but the beginning page is very relevant to you:
So, you can keep "urging" her to leave, for sure. But make sure there are no threats. Meaning, make sure there are no implied threats of bodily harm or damage to property.
Okay, I wish you the very best!
