Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
A property owner may never turn off the electricity or other utilities in order to induce someone who originally entered the property with permission to leave. The only way to lawfully evict someone from a home, even if it was used as a business, is to go to court and get a court order. The former employees living in the property could sue for damages if the landlord cut off their power.
