If a son is living in his mothers property (another home she owns-but does not live in)and he pay and owes rent and lives there with his family.BUT there is NO lease. Can the mother go into the (her) house whenever she wants.There have been issues NON payment of rent and worries of what is being done to the house without her (the owners) permission.NOte: Also the rent is behind and was never consistently paid anyway. Thank you.What is the law in this situation. Does the "so called" renter who right now is just about 2 months behind in the "rent payement" have rights. Does the ownere require giving them notice 24 hours. This is not a typical renter landlord situation. It is mother and son with his family.

Barrister, I asked you some questions about getting notice

Hi Barrister, this is Marie I asked you some questions about getting notice and being served by my ex-girlfriend a week or so ago. She sent me a notice via certified mail that I picked up from the post office today. It is postmarked the 2nd of June. This notice is a print out of what looks like an email. It states I have till July 1st.My question is, can she give me a date not even 30 days out? And what do I do if I should be getting 60 days?

I'm looking for some legal advice on eviction lawJA: Where is the property located?Customer: Chico, CAJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: no, I need some legal advice to ensure that this is indeed required in this situation or if there is other recourseJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My son is at Chico State and he and his roommate (both on lease) sublet a room to somebody (verbally, no paperwork, and against the terms of their lease) who has become verbally abusive and threatening. They have since learned that she has had multiple prior arrests, including assault with a deadly weapon. My son is fearful of this person but she won't leave. When he contacted the police, they told him they can't intervene unless there is more substantial cause and that she will need to be evicted. I want to ensure that this is legally correct or if there is other recourse, and if we do need to evict I will need somebody to handle the process.
