I'm sure that laws differ from place to place but I'm just hoping for a general idea of what I need do and how long it may take. My roommate lost his job over three months ago. In the mean time he has done nothing but lay around the house, eat my food, and go hang out with friends and party. As far as I know he has spent a total of two days actually out looking for a job and that was only after I berated him. Nothing I do seems to make a difference. Things just keep getting worse. I can't deal with it any more. I know that legally I can not just kick him out. He knows this and so if I were to try to get rid of him he would most likely just stay put. I am assuming that I will have to contact the rent management company and talk to them. I have no idea how it would wind up working out, whether I would have to continue paying all of the rent or not, and just how long it will take to get rid of him. As far as I know it normally takes a month minimum to evict someone and if he actually winds up getting his unemployment before then I will be stuck with a roommate I just tried to get evicted.
