I just would like to know the process for my state and how many days I'm supposed to give. I've been getting mixed information
Lawyer: legalgems, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

I'm sorry to hear this;

unfortunately this is not uncommon and the problem is that if the court determines the person is a resident they will be treated as a tenant, meaning the landlord must go through the legal steps.

Normally the court will determine the party a tenant if they have resided on the property for 30 days, has received mail there, and keeps their belongings there-so that it would appear they actually live there.

This would require a 60 day notice; please see this state handbook:

A tenant who occupies property and pays rent without a written lease is a “tenant-at-will” and certain laws such as those regarding eviction and security deposits still apply. A landlord must give a sixty (60) day notice to terminate or increase rent and the tenant must give a thirty (30) day notice to terminate or change the agreement. It is best to put the notice in writing. If the tenant fails to pay rent, the landlord can immediately demand possession and file a dispossessory affidavit.

https://www.athensclarkecounty.com/DocumentCenter/Home/View/1170

As such it is important to comply with the proper notice requirement so if the tenant does not leave they can be evicted.

Now if the agreement was to pay rent and the tenant is delinquent then there is a quicker process but it still requires notice and possibly a court hearing; please see page 16 here:

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.
