My dad passed away today. He has had a live in girlfriend for 9 years. They have separate accounts and not common law. She does help pay for some bills once in a while. How do his kids evict her since the home is 100% in his name.
I personally think it would be hard to find a judge or jury that would believe someone didn’t know they weren’t paying rent for 7 months. That being said, there might have been other things the landlord could have done instead of keeping a tenant in default for over half a year. I would talk...Read more »

Yes, the owner can evict you if she follows the proper legal procedure. There are also legal steps you can take that will delay the actual eviction date... but this type of litigation will not be good for family relationships.
Consult an attorney who focuses on "Landlord-Tenant" law.
