Customer Question

I am looking for help with getting my 20 year pld son out of my house. He was contributing until a month ago but has now stopped paying me anything at all. He has not spoken to me for almost 3 weeks when I told him that I was no longer going to clean up after him. Last night he arrived home with a friend and they spent the night. I have suffered several violent outbursts from him over he last 3 years and quite frankly do not feel comfortable in my own home

Well you are allowed to give him notice - he is only staying at your house on the basis of your grace and favour - and in law would have nothing more than a licence - as such you are allowed to 'evict' him after giving him a reasonable period of notice - this can be a few days or a week. Thereafter you can simply change the locks in him - if he comes back then you would be abel to phone the police for him to moved away. Your safety is the priority in these matters.

Please remember to rate positively - thanks
