Customer:

Hi my name is Ci*** F**c**ft. I am renting a home in Flaxmere Hastings. I took in two boarders with the landlords permission. These boarders have turned out to be so unsuitable that I have given them a weeks notice which they refuse to accept. I have been in hospital and when I came out the situation at home turned so toxic that I have moved in with a friend to recuperate. The weeks notice will end on Friday. The police have been notified and have said that i must just call them my phone number will bring up a file and the responder will give me a call out and the police will come. Am I within my rights with this situation? JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Customer: Hawkesby nz JA: What steps have you taken so far? Customer: I have given them a weeks notice and put myself in a place of safety. I have organised for the locks to be changed on Friday and I want to switch the power off and lock the power box JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you? Customer: The abuse is phycoligical.

There aren't any rules about the time that you have to give a boarder to leave. If you have given them a week's notice, then they have to leave when the notice expires. Sometimes giving them a trespass notice can be useful as well. I have included a link to a sample trespass notice, and the police will help you with this process.
