OK so I have a question...my mother rents a house but it is not legit.Its from a woman she knows though the grapevine.The reason my mother wanted this house is because it was huge and a very good neighborhood.Anyway the woman just let's my mother live there.The electric bills is in the woman's name but my mom pays it.Theres no lease no nothing.Only billion my mom has is cable bill.Anyway all I know is the lady upped the rent 500$ and just notified my mom today.And is expected to pay rent plus another 500$ or the woman said she would find someone else to rent it by then if my mom can't do it.Fuck that, you don't give someone a couple weeks notice.I told mom to save her money and find something else asap. Does this woman have to evict her even though there's no lease or anything.My mother has resided there since winter.I think the woman is shady to begin with I knew it wasn't a good idea but I hoped for it to work out for my mom's sake.

The women will have a hard time getting her out with no lease of any kind.

Really? I kind of thought it would be easy since there was no lease, I thought the lady could just go there and tell her to get out right then and there

If there's nothing signed--no lease or written contract between them--this woman can basically do what she's doing now.

On the other hand, since there isn't a written lease between them, your Mom can move out within a matter of days without written or verbal notice.

I would have your Mom check with her local landlord/tenant laws to make sure, however.

Again have your Mom check her local laws but I believe that since there isn't any type of written agreement between them, if this woman wanted to really flex her landlord muscle, she can say your Mom is squatting.

Your mom has established residency. Her landlord has to evict her or give her 30 days notice to vacate. 

Your mom has been getting mail at the residence correct?

If the lady changes the locks or does anything to "constructively evict" like turning off the power etc then your mom can sue her for a lot of money and its illegal so the city I think attorney general will also get involved.

With no lease, she's no better than a squatter.

She needs to move or get it in writing.

She cannot kick her out!!! It is a verbal and assumed contract. She must evict. HOWEVER she can up the rent like that without notice. And can evict or give notice to move if your mom does not pay. The time allowed depends on state. PA is 30 but I can guarantee that elsewhere.

I'm going to call myself on Monday and find out because I refuse to let anyone fuck with my mom, and honestly that house isn't worth the 1200 my mom pays and now she wants and extra 500...sounds fishy to me

Yes she has to file a legal eviction. Look up tenant rights in her state. Most likely the woman will shut off the utilities to try to force your mom out which is also illegal (at least in Ca and Nv) and your mom can sue her for damages.
