My question involves an eviction in the state of: California
I have a single lodger renting a room in my house. She has been unemployed for a while now, and has decided to stop paying rent. When I ask for it, she says she will pay me when she gets a job...
At this point she is more than a month overdue on the rent. I plan to have her served with a three day notice as soon as I am clear on issues.
Question #1: since she is supposed to pay rent monthly, but often paid bi-monthly because her paycheck and then her unemployment were bi-monthly, would I be expected to give her 15 days notice or 30 days notice?
By failing to pay rent, has she given me notice?
Question #2: Since she is more than a month in arrears on her rent, can I have her removed after the third day if she does not pay in response to the three day notice of pay or quit?
Since I occupy my house in which she rents a room, I do not have to go through formal eviction proceedings (CA Civil Code 1946.5)
She has been telling friends (and it leaked back to me) that she figures that it will take me at least five months to get her out.
She has also informed me that she has invited a friend to visit with her "for a couple weeks or so", and that it is her right to do so. Do I have any legal obligation to have a stranger staying in my house simply because my lodger invited her?
(This lodger used to be a friend.)
