What is the name of your state? Nevada

Long story as most are- Ill try to give details without writing a novel.
Aunt owns house. Rented to lady. Didnt charge lady rent. Wanted to start charging her rent but was uncomfortable asking her (strange i know). Told the lady she so me the house. I wrote the lady a lease with her and her boyfriend. Lady paid rent. Lady dies, boyfriend contiuned to live there and pay rent. Aunts son decides he wants a friend and his family to live in the house for 400 dollars more in rent each month. Files an eviction for a public nuisance (with no grounds to do so) and the boyfriend gets a five day eviction notice. Is there any way to stop the eviction or does the boyfriend have any rights at all? The lease is good through December and it is signed by me. My aunts son has no legal interest in the house- is he allowed to file an eviction? I think it is totally unfair and would like to help the tenant or at least give him an idea of what to do. IS this an illegal eviction since there was never any complaints or police reports made for being a nuisance? Is he entitled to be bought out of his lease? Shouldnt they offer the boyfriend to be able to stay in the house for the additional increase in rent- can they do that mid term of the lease? I know there is a way for him to fight this at leasde I hope there is. Please give me any feedback you might have I would appreciate it.

the current tenant has two things going for him, provided he goes to the eviction hearing:

1) the actual owner did not file the evicion suit. if the tenant brings this up at the eviction hearing and the owner (the aunt) does not want to continue with the eviction, then she can tell the judge that she did not authorize/request the eviction proceedings. (this will backfire if the person who did file the eviction suit has a power-of-attorney or similar)

2) if the tenant contests the eviction at the hearing, the LL (or whoever filed the eviction suit) will have to prove that the tenant is a public nuisance, if that is truly the reason the tenant is being evicted.

now on to answering the individual questions:
proxy said:

the tenant has the right to go to the eviction hearing and plead his case.
The lease is good through December and it is signed by me. My aunts son has no legal interest in the house- is he allowed to file an eviction?
anyone can file any kind of civil suit they want. it's up to the judge to decide if the case has any merit.
IS this an illegal eviction since there was never any complaints or police reports made for being a nuisance?
there is no eviction yet. the judge hasn't granted one yet!
Is he entitled to be bought out of his lease?
is he ENTITLED to a buy-out? no. is that a possible solution to this problem? yes.
Shouldnt they offer the boyfriend to be able to stay in the house for the additional increase in rent- can they do that mid term of the lease?
no and no. if the current tenant has a lease in effect and it does not have a provision for rent increases, then the LL can not increase the rent or evict them just because they want to increase the rent.
