i have a friend who has lived with me for 6 months. never has paid rent. found out she stole from me after month one. She promised and has been paying on the amount until one month ago and stopped and has refused to pay anything else. She went to my boss and filed a complaint saying i was harrassing her by constantly asking for my money. She is also spreading rumors saying i am violent. She showed people this place on her chin and said i did it. I have not touched her. She has done this and still is living in my house. What can I do? I am scared about what she is going to do next.
Landlord / Tenant Lawyer
You may consider getting video or audio devices in the common areas (living room, dining room, family room). Start formal evictation proceedings. It is clear, the person is trying to set you up by getting a restraining order against you and kicking you out of your won house. The faster you work in getting a formal eviction, the better off you will be.
