OK... I have been living in a townhouse for 3 1/2 with my boyfriend. He had the place before I moved in, so only his name is on the lease. I have asked a couple times to be placed on the lease, but then thought better of it because I don't want my name attached to his in legal/financial matters. I have been paying 1/2 the rent and utilities since the day I moved in. I also take care of the trash collection by myself, so the bill comes in my name to the address. What rights do I have to the residence without my name being on the lease? Can my boyfriend kick me out with no notice? If he does so, what right would I have to any property I still have in the home?
