Good morning. With no written lease, your daughter and the others are each deemed to be month to month tenants. Since they are month to month tenants and they have been living there for more than one year, the leaseholder is required to give them at least 60 days written notice to terminate. But, if they don't leave, the law does not allow her to forcibly evict them without obtaining an eviction order from a court. What that means is that if termination date comes and they don't move out, she cannot simply change the locks or throw their things out. Rather, what she has to do is to first deliver a 3-Day Notice to quit...which basically says they have 3 days to leave or face eviction. But, even then, if they still haven't left, she must then file an unlawful detainer action with the court for an eviction order. Depending upon the backlog of the court, it can take anywhere from 15 days to a couple of months to get that hearing. Only when a judge has issued the eviction order can she have them evicted. That will buy them a good bit of time.
