    Answered . I would recommend sitting down with a landlord-tenant attorney for a consult. More information is needed before determining a course of action. For example, if you have completed the steps to term them lodgers instead of tenants, the eviction process is not needed. If they are tenants and not lodgers, you will need to serve them with proper notice and a subsequent unlawful detainer lawsuit. Good luck with your case.

    Answered . Yes, serve them a 30-day notice if they have lived there less than a year or a 60-day if longer. Just make sure you know how to serve the notice and proceed after that.
