Q: What can I do when my boyfriend of 10 yrs won’t leave my house?
A: Sounds like you will need to go to landlord tenant court. I suggest hiring a lawyer its not as easy as you think once a person stays more than 30 days to get them out.
The first question is what has he said to you as to his reason for not leaving? If you and he have been living together for 10 years, has he paid or contributed to the monthly mortgage expense? Has he given you money on a regular basis over that period of time for expenses for the house? Have there been any repair or improvement work done to the home over that 10 year period of time and if so, did he contribute to the expense or did he perform any of the work?
When you bought the home, were you dating him / living with him and if so, where did the down payment come from to purchase the home?
These are several basic questions a family law attorney will need to know to help guide you to resolving the issue of his removal from the property.
