:She only moved in on July 1st. I didn't expect other circumstances to
:happen which have to do with my fiance moving in. When I gave her notice,
:she told me then that she needed til the end of September, but I know she
:hasn't made much effort to look. We had a discussion this morning. When I
:asked her how her apt. search is going, she said, "But you told me you
:would give me leads." To which I replied that I did put the word out to as
:many people as I know, but I can't do it for her. Then she said that any
:broker won't want to see her too far in advance, which doesn't make sense,
:if she needed more time. She's also been just playing on the weekends, not
:looked at all. I told her that she had the past three weekends to look for
:a place instead of play, & she said she has a right to have fun. I don't
:deny that, but she has procrastinated & been nasty to my fiance & I don't
:want to be stuck with her saying at the end of September that she needs
:more time. And it is just unpleasant to have her there. The fact is that
:she is PO'd & just doesn't want to have to look right now. Since we had
:a loose verbal agreement, I wonder how binding it is. Even if my honey
:wasn't moving in, I think I'd want to ask her to leave sooner because she
:has been very irresponsible with regard to pitching in & cleaning, etc.
:Today she told me she has never cleaned a toilet in her life!
:The bottom line is that I don't WANT to lock her out, & I don't WANT to
:serve her notice as a licensee (as I've seen mentioned here but don't
:quite understand - does one need to show just cause to serve a 10-day
:notice & how do you do it?), but I want to know how I stand & what I am
:obligated for. And does notice always have to be written?

:hold unless it's memorialized in a lease or agreement." Just what the heck
:does this mean????
