Legal question on house renting

We have rented out my in laws house.He hasnt paid the rent yet this month.He never signed a lease.Do we still have to give a 30 day notice?I mean then that would mean he can live there rent free for 2 months! Rent is way due and due again in less then 2 weeks and its going up then.He knows this.Can we tell him to be out by the first?Thanks.

  • Legally (in Indiana) I don't know about anywhere else, you have to give a 30 day notice. Anything else, the renter can go to court and keep prolonging getting put out. There are however ways around this. Type up a letter and tell him that he has until the 1st to get out. Make it sound professional. Make a copy of it for yourself. Go file for a court date to put him out legally. After the initial courtdate, he will have to pay back everything he owes you for rent! Thats what my husband and I did. Our renters didn't have a lease either.

  • This is a good reason to have a lawyer available for counsel.


    I dont know what me and my husband would do without it.


    We have had a bad turn in events  when i got really sick, we are having trouble recovering but have faith we will.


    We really enjoy that we can have a lawyer on our side for only $17 a month.


    We really needed it to find any kind of stabiltiy so we dont keep owing back rent.

  • Legally, in TX after so many days you give them a 3 day vacate letter. My experience after the letter is sent. I get the rent right away.
