Asked almost 3 years ago - Sacramento, CAFlag
My sister was living with my elderly father and although she was not paying rent she did cook, clean, drive him around to do errands and do his landry. In addition, she gave him a cell phone and she was paying the monthly bill. When my brother heard that she was living there he immediately set about to have her evicted. My sister and brother had a dispute several years ago that ended in not talking to one another. Unfortunately, my dad thinks the sun rises and sets on his son and consequently signs anything that he puts in front of him. So, my question is, if the son successfully evicts my sister what can/should she do? Thanks.
The brother cannot evict her, only dad can do that. It is his prerogative to have these living arrangements and he can change his mind about them if he chooses. So, if he participates in the eviction, sister is entitled to a certain number of days notice, depending on how long she has been living there. After that, she’ll have to live somewhere else. An attorney can help if an eviction is served.
Best of luck to you.
