Tulsa, OK asked in Landlord - Tenant for Oklahoma

Q: We let someone stay with us that said they only needed to stay for 3 -4 weeks until her apartment was ready

She has been here two weeks longer and we asked her to leave. She refuses. We have given her a deadline several times but she keeps asking for "two more days" We finally said no yet she refuses saying only one more day....then only two more days. She has a key to our house and even refuses to return it.

A: Change the locks and when she leaves for the day, don't let her back in. Otherwise, other than physically throwing her out which is not proper, you would have to file a small claims action against her to have her removed lawfully.
