Have house guest for three years in my home. Over stayed the intended welcome. Have asked her to leave several times. Have asked her for a departure plan. Nothing. She has been working for last two years. She is not paying rent or given anything towards utilities.
Short version - Took in young lady to help her get on her feet after her own personal tragedies, divorce, multiple car accidents, no job, no income, neck surgery, sold house short sale within a couple weeks before fore closure was to happen. She moved in with husband and myself was to be just a few weeks until she could get help from Red Cross or Metropolitan Ministries.

This will be very similar to eviction, but has different forms.
You can start by giving her a written notice that says you withdraw permission for her to be there effective immediately and that she must move her things out and turn over all keys.
I would need to know more information in order to answer your question correctly. The following questions would need to be answered in order to figure out what is the best next step. 1. Has she ever paid you rent? 2. Did you ever have a rental agreement with her? 3. If no to the previous questions, she could be considered a squatter. Either way, you will have to go through the eviction process regardless. I would start with given her the appropriate notice to get the process started. The type of notice also depends on the specific circumstances. I hope this helps.
