Forum / Move-Out & Eviction / Tenant asked me to remove her partner
I got a call from my tenant pretty much telling me she's been paying rent by herself and her partner isn't paying anything and won't leave the house. She wanted to know if I could start a new lease with just her. I told her I can't because its a legal contract with both of them and the only way she could have him leave the house would to file an eviction against him and follow the steps for an eviction. Legally we can't force him out, they been there for a year already. Is there anything else she can do or is that technically her only choice? Has anyone ever had a similar situation? How did you handle it?

RE: Tenant asked me to remove her partner
You can 1. stay out of it. 2. If they signed a year lease without a renewal clause so that they are now on a month to month you could try giving him 30 day notice to vacate and sign a new lease with just her. (Of course now if he doesn't move-out you have to evict him and you have put yourself in the middle of someone else's problems.)

Feature Spotlight: Why do I need A Lease Package?

Those basic leases you can find in office supply stores or buy from online vendors can look appealingly cheap and easy, but chances are, they don't meet all of the legal requirements for binding leases in your state. If you entrust your rental property to a stand-alone lease, you may not be fully protected, especially if you wind up in court with your tenant over a contract dispute.

By using our exclusive Lease-Builder Wizard with State Assist, you'll get unmatched convenience, peace of mind, and protection for not much more than other sites charge for a generic lease.
