I live in Gladstone MO, and have an unwanted mentally ill

Hi - I live in Gladstone MO, and have an unwanted mentally ill house guest. She used to be a neighbor, and I let her in not realizing she was homeless and delusional - all new developments since I knew her several years ago. I've tried several approaches to get her to leave - over five weeks now. She doesn't receive mail at my address, pays for nothing, no verbal or written agreement about her 'tenancy'. So what do I need to do to get her out of my house before I join her in her delusional world?

Back in March of 2011, we had an Unlawful Detainer action

Back in March of 2011, we had an Unlawful Detainer action against us. We lost, and had a judgment filed against us for $7,824.90. We have been unable to pay this. We've offered the person, through their Attorney to settle the judgment for 1/2 the amount, a few days ago. The former landlord refused, and said she wants her 10% per year interest on the judgment, plus the judgment itself, totaling more than $12,000. This is overly-burdensome, and it's preventing us from renting an apartment. Can we go to court and file a motion to have this judgment vacated, or at least reduced. The house had no heat, bugs and rats, but we still couldn't afford the rent. Please advise, thank you -- DanJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Los Angeles, CAJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Do you mean to vacate the judgment....? Not yetJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just that this judgment is preventing us from renting an apartment, and it's unfair, and mean.

I have a month to month lease agreement with my tenant.

I have a month to month lease agreement with my tenant. Before the New Year I told him that I'm planning to sell the property and I want him out by February 1st. He verbally agreed. Than yesterday he called me to tell me that he won't be paying his rent until January 15th because he don't have money yet. He asked me to take his security deposit,half of his monthly rent as partial rent payment. When I asked him to pay within 10 days he became very rood and offensive. Shall I give him 30 day notice letter or 3 day eviction notice? Please advice.Thank you.

I am a landlord looking to evict a tenant, State, No, Yes

Hi I am a landlord looking to evict a tenantJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: Washington StateJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes the tenant was my manager and was getting a discount on his rent. He never paid any rent so I had him work it off. Once that was done he still refused to pay rent. He also was not doing his management duties so I fired him as manager. At that time his rent then went up to the fair market value and he has not paid that either.

I have a tenant with no lease who lives in my house in

I have a tenant with no lease who lives in my house in Antioch Ca. He and my son are not getting along, there was an assault on my son who is bipolar 1 week ago and he was sent to 5150 in Martinez. I gave the tenant a 3 day written notice and he just came to my house saying that he will stay 90 days or until the sheriff kicks him out. He is suppose to pay PG&E. He does meth and says he will go to a drug program sometime in the next few months. He is not getting out and he needs to go. Not good for my son to be around who also wants him out. 7 years ago a romantic relationship however has not been for years. The tenant got fired from Walmart and has no money and is just looking for a place to live. I am tired of financing his life.
