My elderly father allowed a person into his home and the man has been there over a year now. This "housemate" has become controlling and verbally abusive towards my father. I don't want to cause a legal issue that would result in more problems with him. I just want him to leave. I have been advised that he has tenant rights regardless of the situation. If I give him notice to vacate, how many days do I have to give?
How could I expedite his leaving sooner? file restraining order? Document elder abuse? I have contacted the police, but there has been no physical threats so far. I want to minimize the time my father will have to deal with him until he leaves and I fear for his well being due to stress etc.
"If I give him notice to vacate". Why would you be able to do anything about someone living in your father's residence? Do you own the residence? Have you been appointed to take care of your father's affairs?
If your father wants him there, you likely cannot do anything unless the court has given the power to take care of your father's affairs.
What can be done to the person depends on the specific facts that are missing from the post.
What you or your father can do is to review the specific facts with an attorney to see what the legal options may be.
