Does My Daughter Have to Move Out of Her Leased Home?

Share the Knowledge!

My daughter is currently renting a home from a woman. This woman is 92-years-old and her ex-husband now wants the property back. The woman does not want to kick my daughter out. The ex-husband does have his name on the property, but he has not made any payments in a year. Does my daughter have to move?

Generally speaking, it’s the owner of the property that has the right to evict someone. He would, of course, have to follow the appropriate legal procedures in your area in order to do so. One thought: your daughter may not have to move out (maybe there is a provision in the divorce that gives the ex-wife the house)?. Who wants to be in the middle of a fight between exes?
