Detroit, MI asked in Landlord - Tenant for Ohio

Q: Do the home owners need to file a 30 day eviction notice for me to leave?

I have been living on the propery and They are trying to move me out, yet I have been here for over 8 months, have mail sent here, and have given monetary value in the past to live on the premises. There is no paper lease, and the rent was a cash transaction, but there are conversations with time stamps confirming I have been living here for that long and that I have given money to live here.

A: Yes, the owners must give a 30 day written notice before filing the eviction. But an eviction filing is a permanent court record that can make it difficult for you to rent from a landlord who check's the court records, and most landlords check, and won't rent to someone with a prior eviction. So try to work it out with the owner to avoid an eviction filing against you.
