Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
Does he live in the same household as you and share your facilities?
Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.
If you have already given him reasonable notice (you gave one month and we are now a further two months past that) you can simply evict him. You do not need a court order to do this as he is what is known as an excluded occupier.
I suggest you inform him that he has until Saturday to remove his belongings and you expect him to leave on that day with no further delays.
In that case, on that day, you can simply put him out.
I would suggest if you think there might be a breach of the peace that you contact your local constabulary and ask them to send an officer down whilst he leaves. The police may refuse as it is a civil matter, not criminal, but if there is a breach of the peace and the police are called they will come out.
Your lodger has no rights beyond the date you have given him to leave.
The police don't evict people. You are free to evict a lodger from your home - the law has not changed in regards ***** ***** The law changed for TENANTS...your lodger is an EXCLUDED OCCUPIER.
If you put him out and he becomes abusive, you call the police.
And no, you don't 'get physical'.
Wait until he goes out and then change the locks if needs be. Then hand him his stuff through a window.
That's a moral query - you asked on a law forum what you can do and I gave you the legal answer.
Send him to the local authority homeless person's unit - they can help.
His rights end on the last day of the notice you gave him, i.e. 15th June.
He can call the police all he likes - the police cannot prevent you evicting him, it is perfectly legal.
Kindly take a moment to rate positively - thank you.
I'd appreciate if you could kindly take a moment to rate positively as that is how I am paid for assisting you today. Thank you!
