Are you renting the front house and back house?

Is the back house tenant renting from you?

If you answered NO to both questions, you shouldn't have anything to worry about. The back house tenant and the owner need to work it out.

You need to read your contract and see if you were allowed to sublease or even have someone to leave in the property for free.

Most likely the landlord has the right to issue a three days notice to quit or else he can start the legal eviction proses. This might be considered a breach of contract from your side. He can even ask you to leave, so talk to your friend to save you from trouble.

Good Luck

To the OP please provide additional information. Did your landlord give you permission to lease out the space? Who is the space being leased to? Where are the rental payments going to? In any event the landlord has the right to evict unauthorized persons from their property. It would benefit all if you can work something out with the owner at least for he/she to give them a time frame to move. But if that doesn't happen then I belive the parties can be evicted (the eviction process has been lasting anywhere from 6-12 months in CA, from filing the paper work to getting a hearing to the court granting the eviction which they will then give the tenant time to vacate to the sheriff knocking on the door). Make sure you contact your local tenant board for more information about your situation as laws vary from city to city.

The original post is more than a year old (December 5, 2007), so I'm assuming that the issue has been settled by now .....
