Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
When your brother moved in, did you have any sort of agreement that he would pay you?
Also, are you in New York City? The laws are a little different in NYC than the rest of the state.
Did you still need help with this?
You can serve your brother with a notice to terminate tenancy, explaining that he needs to move out. And then, if he doesn't leave when the notice is up, you can go to court the next day to have him evicted. I was asking where you live because the notice requirements differ - it's one month's notice in most of the state, but 30 days notice in New York City. Note that these requirements apply even if you don't have a written lease, and even if he never agreed to pay rent.
