Thank you for using JA. I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs., and I am here to help.

I appreciate your patience as I review your question. I will post my response shortly.
This is general information and no attorney client relationship is established.
The site may ask you if you wish to speak by phone for an extra charge. Many find the phone call to be the easiest and fastest way to get the information they need without posting on a public forum. I am also happy to continue online.
Just to confirm, there is no written agreement between them, correct?
Thank you for the additional information. Without a written agreement, your mother can terminate the tenancy with 7 days written notice.
Then if he refuses to leave, she will need to file a forcible detainer in the county court, obtain an order of ejectment and place it with the sheriff for execution.
The sheriff will come and remove the tenant and his possessions.
If your mother needs to go to court, she may want to retain an attorney. If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys). Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:
It is a huge worldwide database searchable by location and specialty. The attorneys are peer rated. So, they represent the top of the profession.
Please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.
There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.
You are very welcome. Thank you for using JA.
