A couple from Camillus in upstate New York got so tired of their 30-year-old son living with them that they sued him and had him evicted. They had tried giving him cash to move, but he used the money for other purposes. They served him with legal notices, and he still wouldn’t move out. They pleaded with him to start getting on with his life, and wrote, “There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you. Get one–You have to work!”
After an order of possession of the parents’ home was granted in their favor and against the son, he was furious. He remarked that it was “really unfair to me and really outrageous.” He told the New York Post that he didn’t really want to stay at the home of his parents. He complained that his parents had stopped feeding him and cut off the family phone plan. When asked if his parents were trying tough love, he replied “I really don’t think trying to destroy somebody is tough love.”
The freeloading son refused to vacate the home after receiving eviction letters that were signed by his parents on February 2 and March 18 of 2018. Another letter stated, “You have heretofore been our guest and there is no lease or agreement that gives you any right to stay here without our consent.” Another letter was dated March 5, 2018. It give the son 11 days to vacate. In their final letter, the parents even offered to pay for repairs to the son’s broken down car so he’d have transportation to move and get work.
Upon the filing of the lawsuit, the son was served. He appeared in court and acted as his own attorney. He moved to dismiss the lawsuit, claiming that the law allowed him six months to leave. The motion was denied, and the parents were granted exclusive possession of the premises. The court characterized the six month contention as outrageous.” The son will be allowed to remain in the house until such time as a formal eviction date will be set.
The millennial stated that he intended to comply with the judges eviction order, so long as he doesn’t have to move within the next 30 days. It’s his opinion that three months is a reasonable period of time. He might be in for another surprise when the sheriff comes knocking.
