My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.

Immediately, probably not unless he does something more that could get him arrested. If he is not on the lease, you could give him notice to terminate his tenancy. If he has lived there for more than 30 days, he has rights as a tenant. With no lease, he is a month to month oral tenant and in most states, 30 days notice will be sufficient notice for him to vacate. If he does not, then you can evict him. If he is a roommate, then you do not have this option. You would need to have the landlord evict him for a sufficient reason. If you are patient enough to wait 30-60 days, this method should get him out of the apartment.

Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer if satisfied. There should be smiley faces or numbers from 1-5 to choose from. This extra step will cost you nothing extra and will ensure that I will be compensated for my time by the site.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
