How did they become a guest? If you invited them to live with you, then you will need to go through the eviction process. If it's someone who just showed up then change the locks and call the police.
issue before I call it quits and move out? My lease states I cannot get out of my lease for any reason. What do I do?

Some property managers act improperly. They sometimes demand that tenants make a payment not required by the lease. If you don't pay it, she could file to evict you. You could then take your lease to court, and if your lease does not require you to pay it, the judge could dismiss the... Read more »

If you do not have a written lease, then he can evict you. An eviction is a permanent public court record that can make it difficult to rent from a landlord who checks the records, and most do. So avoid having an eviction filed.

A month-to-month tenancy can be terminated by either tenant or landlord at the end of any rental period (typically the end of the month) by giving at least 30 days notice in writing to the other. If landlord gives notice, and tenant does... Read more »

A tenant can try to negotiate a lease termination with the landlord, but the landlord doesn't have to agree. The tenant wouldn't have a good basis for termination, unless a court finds tenant was not mentally competent to sign a lease. A tenant is not required to move in, but if tenant... Read more »
