We are staying with my MIL & her BF since we just moved back to Oregon & paying him rent.My MIL forgot my daughter at the bus stop & left my son unattended while she went to look for the bus.I came home from work & told her i didn't want to talk about it right now & she got in my face & then struck me across the face hitting my son as well who is 11 months old.i am 20 weeks pregnant.She went to do it again while my son is in my arms still & I grabbed her neck & ran her into the BR wall & she pulled me down causing my son to hit his head on the wall.all in front of my 8 yo daughter.She was arrested & theres a no contact & DHS is involved & now her BF is trying to evict us so she can come home.He wrote a false statement to the courts when he wasn't even there.The cops stated she self inflicted scratches on her face.I am trying to find advice on what to do.he is not the owner he is renting the house from a PM company.
A: If you neither own the property nor are the primary person on the lease, the person who has the right to occupy the property, the boyfriend who rented the place, can decide who can live there. As long as he gives you proper notice under the landlord tenant law, you may just have to move. I don't do landlord tenant law so you might want to speak to someone who does and see if the notice you got was done properly. But if you are a guest or roommate in the house, and you don't have some type of lease that allows you to stay for a certain amount of time, and the person who has the legal right to occupy, be they a renter or owner, they can terminate your guest/roommate status with proper legal notice. I would start looking for another place to live.
