I have a guest that has overstayed his welcome by 2 years! -

Customer Question
I have a guest...

I have a guest that has overstayed his welcome by 2 years ! - as, after moving in via verbal invitation for a couple of days or a couple of weeks, he had to have a hip replacement, so out of kindness, I let him stay longer, then there was the recovery period, then physio etc. then time to slowly return to the workforce by doing temp assignments for catering/waiter positions, to which he has only just finally been accepted for a 3-month probationary period, for a permanent position, at a cafe restaurant. He has, over time, become more and more verbally abusive and bullying, and has been threatening in manner and speech, and in also threatening me, if I should try to have him evicted etc., I have since learnt of his previous situation as similar kind of scenario of difficulties, and apparently has had an AVO taken out on him via a previous boyfriend, and I now have an awful suspicion that he basically runs a brothel style massage service, from my very own bedroom, which he occupies in my one bedroom apartment, of which I am the sole leasee tenant and has apparently made himself a nuisance, of which verbal complaints, have come back to me about his behaviour and activities from surrounding neighbours.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

NSW

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I rang the police and they advised that with 'domestic disputes' are normally handled via the tribunal and police don't/can't get too involved and cannot have someone removed, even if they are threatening

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

That's basically the situation at present .... I want to go ahead and give this person written notice to vacate and want to check the correct way to go about it .. .especially legal complications etc.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
