If he dosent have a signed lease or contract kick him to the curb. Record his threats. then file a restraining order.

Re: Please help need advice for a friend evicting room mate
get a baseball bat and ask him nicely

peace through superior firepower has a funny way of working if the intent is genuine and of merit

balls may be required

or you could simply ask him nicely in the name of love and light to kindly leave the premises. you know, flower power

If you are serious rolleyes It has to be faced sooner or later. Therefore sooner is better.

It only puts if off if you don't deal with it.

Why doesn't your friend just move out?

This is correct.

The best way to resolve this situation is for your friend to not directly confront the room mate, your friend should move out, find a reason that does not have to do with the room mate, new job, landlord is selling, anything.

This way the room mate does not think its your friends fault, problem solved.

Please note I am not an attorney or private investigator.

Many, if not most, attorneys will give a free brief consultation. That is a good place to start.

But your friend and you can do a lot of your own preliminary research and paper trail. Each state has its own eviction laws.

The scumbag may have "rights" just because he is a scumbag moocher who has wedged his bulk into your friend's house for a year or more, and has not already been evicted from it.

Eviction forms are readily available on the internet, and at office supply stores.

Your friend may have to give him 30 days written notice to depart. This is why it is in your friend's best interest to consult with a local attorney familiar with local laws.

In such case, the eviction notice would then need to be delivered to the scumbag. An attorney could probably arrange for this to be accomplished by an off duty law enforcement officer (who has been thoroughly briefed on douchebag's propensity for violent threats).

Concealed cameras in your friend's own house could record and document threats.

You can do a lot of your own research online and at the courthouse to see if there are any outstanding warrants on the parasite. Or criminal history.

Also, it is best for your friend to make certain that he has all of the douchebag's correct personal information: Full legal name (and aliases), date of birth, social security number etc, places of prior residency, parents' names and addresses, vehicle ownership and registration, etc, etc.

An imaginative and determined person in your friend's situation could do a little snooping and come up with ways to motivate the scumbag to vacate on his own.

But I am not advising that. I am advising your friend to consult with a local attorney.

Your friend NEEDS to talk to the landlord, explain the situation, and ask the landlord to write a letter saying he (landlord) wants THEM BOTH to vacate the apartment because he wants to rent the apartment to someone else. This way, your friend HAS to move out (for real) and the roommate will HAVE to go elsewhere, WITHOUT the roommate knowing/finding out how this happened. Just make sure the landlord does NOT divulge anything to the roommate.
Its a pain for your friend having to move, but it could mean a matter of life or death.
