My ex lives in my house and I am wanting him to move out but feel i need a legal written agreement. How would I go about

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My ex lives in my house and I am wanting him to move out but feel i need a legal written agreement. How would I go about that
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Oregon
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: We have agreed on writing up things that he gets and things that I get with a move out date set for the end of September. We have not come to an agreement on our Dog and he is asking for his money back from the downpayment he gifted me when I bought the house
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I have a signed document from him stating that he can't ask for that money back that was provided by my loan officer.

Hi there. thank you!
Customer
My ex is currently living in my house. I bought the house back in November. I am working on having him move out and dividing up all of our stuff.
Customer
We have agreed to have a formal letter written up that he signs off on but I am curious how to get that started

He had provided the down payment for me and signed off on a paper stating that this was a gift and he is now asking for that money in return

You want to make sure you just have what you guys agreed to in writing and signed off by both of you to make sure everybody sticks to the terms makes sense? What other questions can I answer?
Customer
It doesn't need to be anything formal I can just type something up and have him sign off on it?

You can but I think the safest thing to do is to type something up that you both agree on and then sign it in front of a notary and have it notarized. Any other questions?
Customer
no I think that's it thank you
