Robert Jason De Groot's answer
You raise a very good question. You should go to speak with an attorney about this problem. The landlord is probably estopped from claiming damages in a second letter like this. It depends upon the case law, as well as the statute, and how the statute is interpreted by the courts.

David Piotrowski's answer
It is impossible to give you legal advice based on your post. Why have the people been living in the house for free? Why have you waited 2 years before evicting? You should probably contact a local eviction attorney for a consultation and perhaps representation.

Your landlord would be required to give you proper and reasonable notice if they were to enter your specific unit. If the landlord is simply entering the common area on the property, he would not need to provide notice.

David Piotrowski's answer
If your roommate is a co-tenant, there's not much you can do to evict her. If she is your "tenant" and you are her "landlord," you may be able to serve her with a valid termination notice and then file an unlawful detainer action in court if she fails to move at the expiration of the notice period. If you are in a rent-controlled area (for example, Los Angeles and San Francisco), the rules favor the tenant and it will be more difficult to evict.
