Forum / Move-Out & Eviction / Evict Tenant Renting Room
I have a rental property (a single family dwelling that I do not live in) that I rent out individual rooms (the rooms do not have numbers that individually identify them). The common areas (kitchen, living room, bathrooms, etc.) are shared living space. I need to evict a single tenant using 60 day notice to vacate. I looked into the notices required and the process to 'serve' them. After reading a bunch of information a few things are still unclear. 1) There are 3 ways to serve a notice (in person, hand notice to someone else at residence + mail notice, post notice in conspicuous place + mail notice) It appears some jurisdictions only allow `in person` service.... unless multiple attempts have been made unsuccessfully , then one of the other options can be used. Additionally some jurisdictions only allow `post conspicuous place + mail` if a Judge gives the ok. 2) Since the rooms do not have numbers do I need to put anything else on the `60 Notice to Vacate` (besides their name/address) that specifically identifies them (vs. the other tenants renting other rooms in the house) 3) I am planning on serving the notice myself (I have read that is allowed). If this goes to court will that hold up? I am wondering what happens if the tenant claims he didn't get the notice and since I served it myself I have no 3rd party witnesses to corroborate. I could also have a friend do it (but same issue as they are not truly 3rd party).
