If my sister lives with our father and recently let a “friend” move in to help with expenses but he has no job and my father wants him out?

He pays weekly so we served him with a 7 day notice to vacate. He is irrate and is not going to go without being legally evicted. I just found out that he has an extensive criminal record including drug possession and battery. I am concerned for my father’s safety. Is there anything I can do to get him out immediately?

I suggest that yor father consult with a landlord tenant attorney about the situation that he has not gotten himself in. Ordinarily a thirty (30) day notice of termination of a lease which the "friend" seems to be on with respect to a month-to-month lease which seems to be the case in your matter is required to legally evict a tenant.

From what you have written, the "friend" cannot be forced out immediately. Perhaps a monetary enticement will work to get him out sooner rather than later?
