My brother has been living with my mother for the last 3 years. My mother has asked him to leave her home a few time but he refuses. We have try to get him into low income housing but he refuses to fill out paper work. He does receive mail at her home. I may add that my mothers health has been declining and she would like him out of her home just in case she is know longer able to stay in her home.
If your mother owns the home and another resident (your brother, the tenant) does not have an ownership interest in the home, your mother is likely free to begin the eviction process against the tenant. This is the case even if there is no written agreement and even if no rent has been paid. To guard against the future attempts by the tenant to reoccupy the home, seize property in the home and/or bring a lawsuit against your mother to recover property, often the safest bet is to go through the formal eviction process. Consult with an attorney who can provide an overview of the eviction process and assess available options, as these are fact-intensive cases.
