Potentially has adverse possession claim, however if she was there with permission then that removes the adverse aspect. Contact a real estate attorney for your best advice.
Can landlord say I'm late on feb rent when the month is not even over yet. rent is due 1st-5th
answered on Feb 5, 2023
If your rent is due on the 1st, and you do not pay rent on or before the 1st, you are late and your landlord can give you notice.

Oklahoma law only protects a tenant, who is defined as "any person entitled under a rental agreement to occupy a dwelling unit." Presumably a guest is a temporary occupant and not entitled to live there under a rental agreement. The bottom line is that there is no minimum time that has to... Read more »

While the notice to terminate a tenancy must be in writing, the law does not state a specific form for this written notice. These laws were created before email was invented and the term "writing" is not defined in them. However, it is possible that email notice is sufficient. The best... Read more »

Unfortunately, you have a difficult situation with no immediately clear answer. To see if the verbal lease survived the landlord's death, you should contact an attorney in your area or your local low-income legal services provider.

You should contact an attorney who can review your contract and paperwork to determine if they have that ability or not.
Fees and past due rent take possession of the unit(s)?

Not without some type of agreement. They would be considered a "volunteer."
Problem and it's been over a year.. and its affecting my energy costs

That’s a big question. I’m not sure what the “house isn’t sound” means.
If you search the Oklahoma Bar Association’s website, they have detailed information about landlord tenant responsibilities. So does Legal Aid.

They are both legal adults. If they aren't paying rent, then they aren't tenants and don't have the rights that tenants have. You can ask them both to leave, and you can call a sheriff if they refuse.
However, this will almost definitely do great harm to your relationship... Read more »

You should contact a "personal injury" attorney. I noticed that this was posted under Landlord/tenant inquiries and they wouldn't likely see it.
I just started this lease officially on April 17th and have only been able to stay a maximum of 4 days in the house due to back to back problems which also posed a hazard to my 10 month old son as well as myself and my unborn child.

It would be good for you to contact an attorney here. Your landlord is not allowed to destroy your property.

I noticed that this posted from Wichita, KS - however posted in the Oklahoma area. If this is in fact an Oklahoma issue, then yes you can be 'evicted' from your home. However, this is a formal process that has to go through proper channels.
The deceased journal consists of the owners name and has dates. Then also the journal is about their everyday life and ideas.

It is not likely, but it is theoretically possible. Take the journal to a probate attorney to be reviewed.
I’m buying a home for cash the seller informed me their friend living there is giving them trouble about moving out, if the sale finishes and the closing date comes, how do I get the tenant out? They have no formal lease
answered on Oct 24, 2020
This should be a problem for the seller. When he sells it to you he is giving you possession. Don't close until the tenant is out.
