Leave rental property immediately

Posted on: 27th Jan, 2014 11:30 pm
My boyfriend and I have been living in a rental property with many others and were also helping the landlord to renovate the property. There was no fixed written agreement regarding rent. Now as my boyfriend fell ill, the landlord is asking him to immediately leave the property. Can he do so?
Hi Guest,

As there has been no written rental agreement, the landlord can ask him to move out of the property any time. However, he can definitely negotiate with the landlord so that he gets some time to arrange for another residence.

Yes, the landlord can ask your boyfriend to leave the property since there was no written agreement regarding rent.

You should have some rights even with a verbal agreement - He can without cause ask you to leave (he doesnt need a reason) but typically 30 days notice is needed - if you have been there more than a year that goes to 60 days - it may vary by state so check your local tenant rights info

Real Property laws generally favor the tenant. Check with your local landlord/tenant laws. Usually, a landlord cannot evict without some kind of notice period. 30 days is typical, even absent a written agreement. If you can't afford a lawyer, there may be a landlord/tenant legal clinic or government office you can find.
