Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
Does the lease have a time frame for overnight guests? How many nights does he stay there, per month?
Thank you for the reply. He stays there months at a time?
If he is staying there an excessive amount and appears to be more then an overnight guest, the landlord can evict, if a notice to cure was given and he continues to stay there. The fact that he lives 3 hours away and/or work close to where you live, does not allow him to reside there. If he is staying with you more then he stays at his own home, there is an issue and a basis to be in violation. If the landlord is going to evict, the burden would be on them to show this is happening.
He can evict if there is a lease violation that you have failed to cure and he can show he is not a guest.
Yes, if they provided you this notice and nothing was cured or fixed and the person continued to stay, in violation of the agreement, the next step for the landlord to take would be to proceed through the court and file for eviction. If they did, you would be served and need to appear, to defend this.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
