Are you their landlord or are you both co-tenants renting from someone else? Presuming you are the home owner/LL, or they are your sub-tenant, then you can evict them. If they are a co-tenant, you cannot. Presuming you are the LL and there was an agreement that they pay you rent, and they have failed to pay, then you give them a written notice to pay up in a couple of days or move out, if they do not pay up in the time allowed, you file the eviction case in the magistrate court in the county where the property is located.
