Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.

.

Is there any type of written tenancy agreement or was any agreement to let her live there verbal?

.

Did you file a formal criminal complaint against her?

.

Did the police remove or arrest her?

.

.

thanks

no written tenancy. I had to have the police come out to stop her from starting a fight. she was not arrested or removed
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no verbal tenancy
Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 2 years ago

Ok, if she wasn't arrested, you couldn't really get a restraining order to get her out immediately... So at this point she would be considered a month to month tenant with you being her landlord. In order to terminate her tenancy in South Carolina, you would have to give her a written 30 day notice to vacate stating on what day the notice ends.

.

Then if she didn't move out, you can file a formal eviction action in court to get a judgment and a writ that the sheriff can execute to physically force her to move out. Takes about 2-3 weeks after the 30 day expires depending on the court's and sheriff's schedule. The court clerk will have the summons and eviction complaint that you need to file to get the case going if she didn't move out during the notice period.

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.
