Customer Question
If you have a family...
If you have a family member that you allowed to move into your home on a temporary bases so they can get on their feet, do I need to serve them in writing that they have to move? There is no legal documents, they do not pay any rent, nor contribute to the household. They had a job and supposed to be seeking work but have not acquired a job yet. They have children that they can go live with also I've allowed her son to stay temporarily who does work and is able to acquire a living space. I've given them until July 31st to move out and they have agreed but I'm concerned that they now feel they have a right to stay in my home without contributing anything. Should I give them some sort of document regarding our agreement for them to be moved by July 31st.

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

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
