You need to consult an attorney. Call Dave Poelstra, he is familiar with thesse type of sales. His cell is 479-1161. Pleas call me if you want to list it after this is finished.

Without a contract you are in a situation where you would need to probably file for eviction. Although not having a lease or other type of contract is a bad situation and consulting an attorney is a good idea. For eviction Tom Herr is probably the best bet.

When it comes to contract and legal issues, no matter which way, and I hope if and when you agreed to a certain amount of monthly rent, and payment of all utility bills that you have such in writing, signed and dated by both parties, which each party of same.... But besides that, only an attorney can look at the
exact situation and look at the contract and give you correct and legal advice. As Realtors we can NOT give legal advice.
Good Luck to you

Sorry to hear of your troubles.

I'm afraid that the questions you ask are only answerable by an attorney. Most of here are mere Real Estate professionals, wholly unqualified to give legal advice.

If you need a recommendation for someone locally, I'd be glad to help.

Good luck!
