    Default How Do I Get a Roomate Without a Lease to Leave

    My question involves a roommate in the State of: North Carolina

    My friend was living in his car so I told him he could stay with me for a few months until he found something. We never had an actual lease. We did discuss that the longest he would be staying was 6 months. He offered to give me $300 per month towards groceries and bills.

    It has been 4 months now and things are not working out for a variety of reasons. The main one is finances. He gives me money sporadically, never the whole amount at once, and sometimes not until the next month. He eats all the time and I am spending $380 every 3 weeks on groceries alone. Now this month he has not paid anything yet. I told him nicely that things were not working out and he would need to find a new place within 30 days.

    Do I need to go to court and file full eviction or can I just change the locks and put his stuff in his car?

    You need to evict him through the court.
