What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Mass
I have my brother, his girlfriend and a 16 month old baby living in my basement inlaw apartment. They were evicted from their last 2 apartments for failure to pay rent. I allowed them to come live with me temporarily (discussed until Christmas but the latest in the spring). Now, they just became pregnant again AND my brother once again lost his job. So, I asked them what their plans were and they got angry saying how family is horrible and he expected that I would do him wrong just as family always does. Our verbal agreement was that he would put $500/month into supplies and use these supplies to fix up the area they are living in. So I am not taking any physical money from them. I am concerned that with another baby on the way that they are now going to become indefinite "squatters." This is why I initiated what the PLAN was to remind them that this was temporary until they got on their feet. Now they are refusing to leave stating that it isn't even a legal apartment. They said I should be paying them for doing the work in the basement! I was only doing them a favor but now I need to know how to get rid of them. They are not fixing the place up anymore and are living down there for free and I am paying for everything in the house. How can I evict them from my home? I can't take the swearing and yelling anymore that we hear going on downstairs. Thanks.
