What are my rights as property owner, if boy friend is living with me and I have notified him that I want him to move out by the end of June?

He asked to wait until the end of July. He stated he doesn’t have any money to move. If I let him state until July – he moved in July 26, 2008.

As property owner you are entitled to tell him to leave and he would have to rights to remain on the premises at that point. With this being said I say it assuming there was no lease in effect and that the property is solely in your name.

He may try to remain and make an argument if he can show a clear money trail that he was paying a form of rent or the bills etc. This will probably not manage to make a strong enough point to let him stay but its just a possibility I want to tell you about.

If he refuses to leave you may want to call a local attorney who can explain the regulations in your area. he can also represent you to your boyfriend and help move the process of getting him out along. Good luck
