    Default Evicting a Boyfriend in North Carolina

    My question involves an eviction in the state of: NC
    My boyfriend has been living in my house for the last 7 years. I verbally told him this week that I wanted him to move out but so far he hasn't shown any indication of doing so, packing, looking for another place to live etc, what else do I have to do and how long should I wait before looking into a legal way to get him out? I gave him 30 days to move. The house is mine, in my name. Do I have to give him 30 days or can I give him less time? And is the verbal eviction notice enforceable?

    a verbal notice, like a verbal contract, is worth the paper it's printed on.

    So I basically wasted my time by asking him politely to leave?

    if he challenges it, yes.


    You are required to provide at least 7 days notice before the end of the rental period for a month to month tenancy in your state. An tenancy at will such as you have will be treated as a month to month tenancy. I do not know if NC goes by calender months or 30/31 day months so trying to determine what the first day of his month is problematic. I would treat it as calender months. It is always a safe bet.

    So, since it is already too late to get him out before the end of May, give him a written notice terminating his tenancy as of May 31. Hand him a copy. Hang one on his bedroom door. Post one on the front door of the house.

    Then, if he does not leave at the end of May, you will have to file an unlawful detainer suit and ask the courts to evict him.
