I rented my house out to two gals and one of them has let her daughter and 2 grandkids move in. I agreed to let her stay for a month only because her mother said her housing through welfare was due to come through any day. She is very undesirable, will not work, screams at children , used drugs and even hits kids. I have told her to leave but she refuses. I hate to call the police and have her put out because of kids. Any suggestions?

Sorry to hear of the situation, but you need to follow your state/local rules for eviction. There is no such thing as a quick eviction. Speak with a real estate attorney for advice. You can't just call the police and have her immediately removed, doesn't work that way.

You can contact the social services department in your county or if she is mistreating the children you should be able to call a "hotline" that goes to the state and the state contacts the local social services department of the county. They will follow up to check on the children. For all you know that county may already be familiar with her. You can do this with revealing your name. Maybe after a visit she will be on her way. Or you can also raise the rent since there are more people in the home. I've seen landlords do that before. Good luck to you.

Not as easy to "raise" the rent like you suggest. Even if it is raised and the renter refuses to pay the increase there is a specific timeline/process to evict. For the most part, housing laws favor the tenant over the owner. The laws are different depending on the location. No simple answer. The OP needs to consult an attorney, plain and simple.

I had a squatter living in a property that my deceased father owned and it took 3 months to finally get them out. I was advised that they could get utilities in their own name even if I told the utility that I refused to allow service to be re-activated.

Call the police if necessary, they have procedures for dealing with such kids.

Thank you for the correction. I was a little confused from your earlier response.

I'm just curious, not being nasty in anyway but how do you know she does all of these things?? If it's rumors I wouldn't listen. If you've seen it with your own eyes then call children services, that's all you can do. I wouldn't go and file an eviction and kick everyone out due to possible rumors or for the main tenant wanting to help her daughter ya know.....as long as bills are paid, rent, utilities, etc I just wouldn't worry about it. Don't evict just call children services! Xoxo hope everything works out update us when you decide what to do please I'm curious of the outcome hugs!
