What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Florida
My husband and I agreed to allow my mother and father (a stroke patient) live in our home until their new house was completed. Based on the estimated closing date, we had a verbal agreement that they would pay a minimal rent amount for 3 months and move out when they closed on their house. Their rent covered them through June, 2010. They closed on their house on June 28th. My mother decided (about 6 weeks prior to her closing date) that she would have a significant amount of additional work done in the house after closing. She says she can't move out until it's done. There is still no anticipated move date and the tension in the house is unbearable. We have asked them to leave several times as there is no reason (other than convenience) that they can't take possession of their new house. They refuse to leave. We have not asked for nor accepted any additional payments or made any more verbal agreements that they could stay any longer. What rights do I, as the homeowner, have? Can I have them removed from my property?
