My boyfriend of 13 years and i are on a lease together (in Oregon State) and he is trying to allow his troubled brother to just move on in and i am absolutely refusing because my boyfriend and i agreed NO ONE ELSE WOULD STAY OR MOVE IN - PERIOD!!
Now together, they are telling me if i don't agree they will talk to the landlord (which his brother is friends with) and get me evicted!!!! Is this even possible?? Do i have to "allow" him to move in? I feel like i am being bullied into signing a new lease! And just because his brother is friends with our landlord he may very likely be able to convince the landlord to evict me! He's very manipulative!
I just want to know what my legal rights are and how i can prevent this from even taking place. Ive told him i have no intentions on changing the lease agreement and thats when the threats started.
BTW, my boyfriend has no backbone and won't stand up to his brother, i on the other hand, have no problem with it.
PLEASE HELP! I need to resolve this ASAP before i am the one forced from my home.
Thank You so much!
Are you on a month to month tenancy or a fixed term lease? If fixed term, you are not subject to eviction without cause prior to the end of the lease term. If month to month, your tenancy can be terminated with 60 days written notice. If you and your boyfriend are both on the lease, then either of you has the legal right to permit guests to stay, you do not have to have the other's permission. If the guest stays too long, your landlord may well have the right to evict you all if he wishes. Nothing prohibits landlord from evicting all of you and then renting anew to boyfriend and brother alone if that is his choice.
