Customer Question
I was renting my home...
I was renting my home for 8 yrs when I met someone, she then bought a house and wanted me to move in. I gave my house up and we've been together in our new home for 6mths, she now wants a break from the relationship and wants me to move out. Although the mortgaga is in her name, I assist with all the bills etc, get my mail here, drivers license, etc... DO I have to just pick up and leave or do I have rights? Thank you for your time

Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.

You are a month to month tenant.She has to give you 30 days written notice and file to evict you.This gives you at least a little time to make other arrangements.You are correct you have rights, the month will give you time to look and move.I know it isn't a lot but you have at least this long here.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Sorry you are having to go through all of this.

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

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
