Rent and eviction with roommates in California.
April 16, 2013 5:54 PM Subscribe
Renter A has a lease and takes on a roommate, who doesn't sign on to the lease and then doesn't pay their share of the rent. A wants them evicted but can't get them out on their own. What, in California, can the owner of the property do to evict the roommate, while leaving the initial renter? Does the owner have any recourse since the roommate isn't on the lease?

There is no written agreement of any kind for the roommate, neither with the roommate or the owner. What is the simplest way of forcing the roommate to leave since they aren't paying?
