When a lawyer answers a question on Avvo, we ask them whether or not they think the person should hire a lawyer for their issue. If more than 75% suggest hiring, the question is considered “High need”.
Do I need to put in paperwork on the defautl and he has a roommate that has never paid me rent. I asked for it but do not know his last name. How do I go about evicting him?
You have to file papers to get judgment entered.
You have to evict the roommate. Serve him as John Doe with a 3-day Notice to Pay Rent of Quit. If he doesn't pay serve him with an unlawful detainer.
