We have had the lease in this home for 3 yrs & we rented a room. I had the tenant served a notice to quit 12 days prior to this next month. They still refuse to leave. I guess I will now have to file for eviction? Do I have 30 days to return any deposit? Is there any suggestions or things I'm missing?
Tenant as been renting this room for 6 months paying for each month on the 1st.
Ordinarily, a landlord has 30 days within which to return all or part of (with written explanation) a security deposit. For a tenancy of one month or longer, but less than six months, a notice to quit must be served at least 7 days before the end of the term. Sounds like you might need to evict the tenant at this point.
