Q: Can my parents kick me out without notice? What are my rights to my property/belongings while in their house?
Turned 18 last September. Living at parents house my whole life. My ID, bank, and mail state their house as my address. Live there rent free. Parents are controlling with "house rules". Same curfew and bedtime I had as kid. I have school and part-time job and they try to control what I can and can't do with my free time such as using the phone and Xbox that I payed for myself. Parents thought I was on electronics past set times and tried not letting me use them as a punishment. I argued that I didn't do anything and wouldn't except punishment and got kicked out of the house without notice that day. Is that legal? Also after a few weeks staying with grandparents they were worried with covid and I had to move back in with my parents(i didn't have my ID or mail address switched). My parents wouldn't let me bring my electronics back and even had them moved without my consent from grandparents house, and refuse to tell me who has it or where it is until I leave their house. Is that legal?
A: Yes. They can.
