Hello,
I am buying a property in Palm Springs. Apparently the seller has a difficult family member living there that won’t know the house is being sold. This tenant supposedly has no lease nor pays rent. How difficult will it be to get them out if they have no rental agreement or lease? Do they have a right to stay in the home? Thank you

Hello? -are we satill connected?
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 2 months ago
The tenant is month to month. Normally 30 day notice is sufficient to end tenancy. An eviction lawyer can expedite too. martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options. If the other side considers risk, legal fees and time you should get the outcome you seek. By being prepared and pressing your claim, the other side should feel the pressure and consider the risk of losing and legal fees. That realization can help bring about a settlement!Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

No, Im sorry but I already know this process you are expianing here. There is no month to month, the tenant never had a lease, there is no agreement. It’s same as if someone took over a place that didn’t belong to them.
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 2 months ago
If there is no lease the person by default is month to month and has to be formally evicted unless you agree on a vacate date which tenant should want to avoid an eviction on his record!If you need any clarification on your answer please just reply back and ask me. I will be glad to comment further. If you have a follow up, please hold off on rating and you can rate once in the end when I address your follow up. There may be a short delay if I am helping another customer or have internet issues but I will be back to you if you need me

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.
