Can they call the police to get me escorted out of their home? 11 Answers as of May 28, 2013

We have live with my fiance’s sister for 3 months now and they told us to get out by the 1st, which was okay with us. But it’s still 5 days before and we got a call that his sister's boyfriend was on his way home to call the police to have us removed, can they legally do that since I paid Decembers rent and it is not the 1st yet?

If you have an oral arrangement and you can prove that you have paid the rent for the month, then no, they can not have you removed by simply calling the police. You tell the police that you are a tenant and have paid rent for the days in question.

They can but the police will generally not get involved unless there is an eviction order issued by a District Court Judge.

Probably not. They would have to go through an unlawful detainer proceedings before they can evict you.

If you have established an actual tenancy relationship and are not just guests they cannot force you out without a court order.

    They can call the police, but since you are paying rent they probably cannot have you removed unless you pose a threat of physical harm to them. In fact, since you have been there more than 20 days, you could force them to go to court and evict you.

    It is unlikely that in the absence of a breach of the peace that the police will get involved in this matter without a court order for your removal.

    No. If you show the police proof that you are renting, they will tell everyone that it is a civil matter and you have to be served with a lawsuit for an unlawful detainer, and a judgment entered and a writ of possession served by the County Sheriff's Department before you can be evicted.
