The Roommate in question has harassed multiple other tenants and myself with verbal harassment. It has escalated to the point one of the roommates is not feeling safe, and cops have been called. Can I legally give her a 3-day notice to quit? I have mentioned to the roommate in question multiple times to stop the harassment, but it has only continued to escalate. I tried to serve her a 30-day notice to quit, but she refused to meet. With all these things, How can I get her to go?
Are you the landlord? Only the landlord can put tenant in default and pursue eviction. Roommates and co-tenants can get a temporary restraining order against problem person, which will help move things along. Tenants can also break a lease without penalty if their safety is threatened.
