My mom is in ill health and me and my boyfriend moved in to help take care of her. He pays no rent, he signed no lease paper. he does have his bank statement come to the house in which we have asked him to call bank and change and he refuses but his ins card goes to his mothers house, also a change of address card for him was completed 6 months ago. We want him to leave because he has very bad mood swings and not sure if he is on drugs or not and my mom is a senior. Can we make him leave without going to court? In the past he has been arrested at our house. He thinks bc he does laundry,cuts grass or makes a hamburger for her once in a while he is entitled to stay there.
You must go through the normal eviction process. Without any written lease, he is a month to month tenant. That can be terminated at the end of a month by giving him 30 days notice. But if he agreed to pay rent, and is not paying, then it can be quicker. But if he never agreed to pay rent in writing, that might not work. But it could work if he doesn't show up for the eviction hearing. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to consult a local attorney to assist you with the eviction.

The boyfriend is a "tenant at sufferance" or a "periodic tenant," who can be evicted, but the prior answer is correct, he must be served with a 30 day notice - ohio law requires very specific language. Do. Ot attempt to serve this notice without legal assistance. The notice is mandatory before any court can even have jurisdiction to hear an eviction.
