So... Can you? Or do you have to go through the same eviction process as normal. Anyway to loophole the system or make it go faster if they are not on a lease?
In California, you have to add "and all in possession" wording to all eviction paperwork to cover those who is not on the lease document but who can claim tenant rights by the length of their stay.
If you mean someone who is not named on the contract (whether lease or month to month), yes. Just add all occupants. If you mean someone who is month to month, yes.
Absolutely. I say a person on lease or even John Doe and all occupants on the eviction.
If they don't have the utilities on, I call code enforcement and they will set everyone on curb in 24 hours. This is because house is uninhabitable without utilities turned on.
@James Gleeson Consult a local attorney for the proper process and wording that should be used in your area, but here in Connecticut we just add "jane doe" and/or "john doe" for occupants we know are living there, but we dont know their names.
If you couldn't, I'd imagine that many landlords would be stuck with permanent squaters.
Your lawyer should be able to handle it.
Is there anyway to kick them out without evicting them?
