You have to look up the laws in your state, but here in California, we would give him a 3 day notice to perform covenant or quit, meaning he has 3 days to get the vehicle removed from the driveway or he risks being evicted from your property. As far as not having a lease with him, you may also serve him with a 3 day notice to review and sign your lease. You can get a free lease (and any variety of forms) from www.aoausa.com. Click on free forms, and scroll down to rental leases.
If this guy is a good friend then he should understand your concern and move the trailer to a more appropriate place without having to take any legal action. Maybe you can do a little homework first, and see where he is able to store it, like a parking spot he could rent close by that accepts them.
I think it was Benjamin Franklin who once said "guests and fish have one thing in common, they both stink after 3 days". Good luck!... more
Related question. As a buyer, one of our closing fees was proration of the annual HOA dues back to the seller. (Seller had already paid a full year.) This was essentially money out of our pocket back to the seller. ( I have no problem with understanding that the seller only pays for the portion of the year they owned the home.) But we then received a bill for a full year from the HOA. This means that we basically pay for 2/3 of a year (to the seller) plus a full year to the HOA. Or, to look at it from the HOA's perspective, the HOA received a full year's dues from the seller and now receives a full year from us (the buyers.)
Does the HOA actually make extra money off this? More than a year's worth of dues? Am I missing something?
