My name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
A landlord is allowed to terminate a tenancy by giving 30 days written notice. Ohio Rev. Code, Section 5321.17. If she's living there with your consent, she's considered a tenant. The notice you gave her is still valid - ripping it up doesn't give her a right to stay longer.
If you're concerned about being able to prove that she received notice, you can hand her another in front of a witness who will testify for you. You're allowed to place it at her feet if she refuses to take it.
As long as you gave her at least 30 days notice, on the 31st day, you can go to the courthouse and file papers for eviction. If she still doesn't leave after you get a court order, the sheriff will forcibly remove her from the premises, and you can change the locks.
The housing court in your area should have forms you can file to start the case.
