If A person is...

If A person is house sitting and is it legal for them to go to the Post office and make an address change to where they are house sitting, could they consider that there residents?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are they in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Nevada, they moved all of there clothes and bed and personal things

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have they taken so far?

Is this legal, can the owner make the person leave after the time is or they now consider a resident?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
3months, the person was allowed to store her furniture in the garage, and after the 3 months is up this person is going to another site where they will be house sitting for 2 months. This person has no home now they moved out of there house and started to house sit this house, they have no real address.
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 3 months ago

Thank you for the reply. No, the person could not change their address to the homes where they housesit, since they are not residents nor have any type of rental agreement. Yes, they stay there and watch the home but do not reside there, so in a situation like this, the person is better of suited simply getting a PO Box and using that to receive mail, if they have no alternative address

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.

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.
