I rent (no lease) I bought in a roommate (also no lease) he has begun to steel from me (no proof but no doubt he is committing the offence) today expensive item taken. I want to put his property on the street tomorrow. If he calls the police, am I in violation? Will he have solid civil recourse?
...I'm in need of suggestions, to follow-up on, for legal fast evacuation of a roommate ASAP- need to throw him out tomorrow. Over the last 12 years I have lived on the 2nd floor of a 2 story house. Private entrance going upstairs to my area, which I share with another individual whom I bought in as a roommate about 6 months ago (no lease) (rent pay by cash- no checks) We have separate bedrooms - shared bath. My roommate (adult) has family living in the local area. My landlord is a doctor who's practice is down stairs on the 1st floor and he owns the house but lives in another town. The doctor is a friend of mine and I have no lease with him (pay cash). He is old and not well, so I do not want to bring him into all this... items started to disappear during the last few days and though I know he is the problem, I have no proof. I want to order him out and have him start packing to be gone same day. If he refuses, I intend to put his property on the curb when he is at work, and change the locks. He is a security risk I can no longer afford to have in the house and above a doctor's office. Once I tell him he is out, problem will escalate if I do not remove him.
Can I throw him out? Can I enforce instant No Trespassing Notice to a non-lease roommate? Or, can I just remove his property/ change locks when he is not here?
Thank-you for your time and attention...
I expect bad news- as I read my own text I keep hearing the thoughts of: court order/landlord
