My daughter and her boyfriend have gotten into quite a few violent fights here, and I am tried of it, I am sick and have several strokes and heartattacks, them being here is not at all good for my health and they have refused to move out when I told them to leave. What can I do that would take the shortest amount of time?

    Answered . Like it or not, your daughter is a month to month tenant. That means you have to serve her with a 30 day notice of termination of tenancy. If they do not move out within 30 days you have to file an unlawful detainer action and proceed with the steps to evict her.
