I am at the risk of eviction by my parents and I am 21 years

This answer was rated:

Hello, good afternoon I am at the risk of eviction by my parents and I am 21 years old I was hoping I could get some legal advice on this matter
JA: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: I live in the UK, in London
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: Nothing so far. There was just a huge argument in the house which happens daily - between my other siblings and my parents And my mother accused me of poisoning their minds, etc So she said I need to leave the house and she is giving me a 3 days notice I told her that isn't fair since I pay rent There is no physical contract - it is all verbal
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I have proof of paying rent through my online banking system since October 2019 but nothing from before that

How long is this going to take? Why has my money been deducted when this is a free trial?

Hello, I will assist.

As you are at home and paying rent, you are classed as a Lodger.

Your parents are within the law to ask you to leave, if you fail to, they can evict you without a court order.

The amount of notice they must give would depend of the rent you pay. If you pay weekly, then they must give you a weeks notice in writing. If you pay monthly, then they must give you a months notice.

I have one last question: We are actually tenants on rented property including my parents. I realised it was important to mention. Can they still kick me out since I am a co-tenant?

If you are named on the tenancy agreement then no.
