Mentor, OH asked in Landlord - Tenant for Ohio

Q: Hi I was just wondering/want to ask and find out for sure for sure for someone I know.

I wanted to ask and double check and make sure for sure because his landlord is starting to throw him out because he's a little behind on his rent for this month and everything but I was wondering and wanted to make sure if because he's old and he's disabled he's like 60 something 70 something years old and he is a legal guardian of his one daughters a 8-year-old son and so is living there with him too but was wanting to ask if his landlord could just kick him out because of him being a little bit behind this month on the rent and wanted to also ask what would he have to all go through if the landlord win the landlord just kick him out and everything. Like how exactly does that all work for with him being disabled old man and is also having to be the legal guardian of his 8 year old grandson that also lives with him there?

A: It is good that you are willing to help. A landlord can evict any tenant who is behind on rent, even if only a little behind. Talk to the landlord, and then talk to local senior services agencies or rental agencies that might be able to help the tenant pay rent or find him a new place if he is evicted.
