A: He can try but you ultimately get to decide who can be in your house. This assumes that your grandson is not a "renter" as defined by Oregon's landlord tenant law. I don't do landlord tenant law so if you might want to consult with a landlord tenant lawyer to see if your grandson has rights that would be protected under Oregon's landlord tenant law. Also, being a tenant doesn't always mean paying rent, it also applies to squatters. Assuming that your grandson doesn't have renter status, then you can ask the girlfriend to leave and if she doesn't call the police and let them take care of it.
