Good Afternoon

It is not a simple matter

You will have to give him a notice to leave the house.

If he does not then leave you will then have to make an application to the Magistrates Court to get an order that he be evicted.

The notice has to be in writing and you should keep a copy of it.

He is not a tenant because he does not pay rent.

You would be arguing that he is a lodger.

There is no tenancy agreement in place.

If you fear for your safety and he is violent you can consider an intervention order that would say he is not permitted ot live there.

But you have to show that you have fears and he is violent.

These are your only options.

I note my colleague has sent a message but seems to be away as 10 minutes have passed since he has sent his first response.

If you wish to have a phone call to discuss this in more detail please elect a call or I can send you a request.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. You rating my work 5 stars allows me to continue to provide a service to those who require it.

I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Let me know if I have answered your question today.

Regards

Leon

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I need your answer in writing as I need to show my son.

Good Afternoon

You can contact the police if he has bee violent and report it to them or attend at the court and seek t have a private one.

in QLD they are known as protection orders.

Here is some information from Legal Aid QLD

If you wish to apply yourself it is for a good behaviour order and the link below has the forms to be completed.

I hope this assists with your further question.
