Non-paying Tenant with No Lease in Atlanta, GA
Asked Jun 26, 2008, 02:16 PM
A friend of mine had trouble with her previous roommate so I offered to rent her one of the extra rooms in my house in Atlanta, GA. We agreed on the terms (rent due on the 1st day of every month, we'll assume month-to-month basis since she was only planning to stay shortly); I never asked her to sign a lease. She's only lived here for 3 months and has not been able to pay rent.
On May 20th, I told her the arrangement wasn't working out and asked her to be out of my house by June 10th. She told me she was unable to be out by June 10th and asked me if we could wait until June 30th. I agreed to let her stay until June 30th.
It's now June 26th, I spoke to her today to make sure she's on schedule for the June 30 move-out and she said no. She's refusing to leave, stating that I haven't given her enough notice. If she isn't out by July 3rd (3 days after the date I've requested her to move), I'm having her stuff moved to storage and changing all the locks. Are there any legal ramifications for my actions???
