I own a property, and i currently have a tennant, who is not on lease, it expired a few weeks ago, and so is classed as being on a "periodic stay".
Now instead of having 2 sharing the place, i want to rent the whole place out, as it is easier to keep track of paying bills, and i can get more rent that way. So i gave her two weeks notice the other day.
I had discussed the issue with her a few weeks ago and said there was a possibility she would have to move out. Anyway i end up giving her the notice the other week. I didn't do it in writing, but had a witness present at the time. I then put it in writing a few days later, and backdated it. She has said she will take notice form the day of writing, and that under the periodic stay, she has 60 days to vacate, not 2 weeks. Does anybody know much about the law in this area and what my rights are?
She is going overseas in 2 months for about 6 months, so i know she doesnt have the time or money to fight me on anyhting. So i am starting to make life hard for her as she is being a little cu** I removed the TV and sterosystem so she couldnt have any parties, and im going to take the mircrowave this afternoon. Claim it needs to be repaired, and then drag it out for as long as possible.
She is basically costing me $220 a week, which is alot!
