I need some help ensuring all legalities are followed to properly evict a house guest/roommate.
She was invited for a period of three months to give her rent-free housing to look for work. By the end of the third month, she illustrated she had too many personal issues to land a job (behavioral and otherwise).
We extended her welcome by placing rules on her behavior, which she has broken many times. We agreed her stay would rely upon her seeking help, therapy and recovery programs in order to be more helpful with her future, with a review after every 2 months. She has failed on all of this. She has books she wont read, meds she wont take, and even therapy we paid for- her therapist said is a lost cause. She continues to be a nuisance, refuses to work, refuses to abide by her agreements, and refuses to seek help, and has many violent episodes at random from mental illnesses. She has been here now for a total of 11 months and we're both assured there is nothing else we can do.
She is not on the lease and has never paid rent. We've provided all her rent, bills and expenses. I have verbally explained to her we're about to give her a 30-day notice to move out, but she has expressed she will not vacate the premises without being forcefully ejected. In past episodes where her behavior had neighbors call the police, she attempted to point at any scratches or flaws on her person and explain they came from us (two males), but the police luckily didn't side with her and hauled her down to psyche-ward for observation. We have never touched or assaulted her in any way, although she very commonly has physically assaulted us in her episodes.
My questions are:
1) What kind of 30-day notice (California legal) needs to be served to a house-guest. As she's been living here for so long, I'd imagine she qualifies as some form of roommate even though she is not on the lease and never paid any rent.
2) As she will resist the eviction, what steps are needed to have her escorted off the premises? I am considering a restraining order at the end of the 30 days and the possible need for a call to the police/sheriff for forcible eviction in order to bypass any claims of physical assault she may try to use.
We've already taken pictures and inventory of belongings. She has in the past done much property damage during her episodes. We're more interested in getting her out of our home than recovering losses as we can fix or replace whatever she may damage or steal.
