My friend was paying me $450/month since July 2019 with no signed agreement ie lease and has also defied my rules, has given me a verbal date to leave. I have given her 2 months rent free starting Nov 2019 to leave Jan 3, 2020. I contacted the Fairfax County Sheriff's department that say I have to appear before a judge. I received legal advice that she is a "guest" now. I am under the advice that I can kick her out without my own legal repercussions
Unfortunately, not. You're going to need to go through the eviction process. She is not a guest if there was an agreement to pay rent. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer.
I hope you found this response to be helpful. If so, please click "best answer" and/or "helpful." Avvo is a a very useful resource, but does not create an attorney-client relationship, and cannot replace an in-depth consultation with a lawyer. Steven Krieger Law, PLLC
