How Can I Evict A Flatmate? by Malawian(m): 10:31pm On Apr 21, 2018
Okay, so I got a 3bd flat I am renting, but decided to sublet 2 of the spare rooms as I don't really need the space yet and also that it should help to bring down the overhead.

problem now is, the tenants are not paying for anything. Not even rent or Nepa or other utilities and I have been the one taking care of the costs up till now.

I just finished paying the rent to the landlord 2 months ago, and the sublet has also expired. I wrote them a note late last year indicating that I will not be renewing their sublet for this year.

Now, I got a lawyer to serve them a notice to quit last month and the notice is meant to run for a month. as I am here now, it doesn't look like they are even bothered about the notice.

one of them actually locked up the room since January and has not been available to pick up the quit notice, he does not pick my calls nor answer my messages. Even the ones sent on FB which indicates he has seen them do not also get a reply.

The Lawyer in question also seems to be a busy man and was supposed to be around last week to brief me but I don't seem to get ahold of him that much.

As we know, we Nigerians can be very devious and unscrupulous ( Bubu said so ), Like the one that has locked up the place since January, he could claim he has valuables or money missing should I force the place open, even though I know the room is empty, save for curtains and a foam.

The other one who actually stays there 247 seems to be looking to pick a fight that can be a pretex for a court case.

Honestly, I will like to know how to go about getting those guys out of my flat, considering that if I should pack out of there, they also has to pack out.

Lawyers, etc, any suggestions will be appreciated.

I full ground with una here for background.

wake up during the midnight and start performing some strange rituals like tying white wrapper round ur waist and sprinkling palm oil on the entrance of their respective rooms, don't forget to utter strange and scary words that sound like incantations. do this. continuously for a week..NB during that period don't talk to them..

The Facebook chats and text messages could serve as an evidence that at least you tried your best but he wasn't picking up calls nor replying messages.

The 24/7 guy at least is aware of the notice. You have no problem with both of them.

I am not a lawyer but subletting is illegality. Your agreement does not support such. Having said this, do you have any agreement with your flatmates? Do you issue them receipt the first time they paid you? If non of this exist, kindly get soldiers to throw them out . Even if they decide to act , claim you are only doing them a favour but you are getting married and needed to have your privacy. Since no evidence to show that they pay you, no case submission will be the end. They might wanna claim they transfer to your account ,claim is part of their money for feeding and bills since you are doing them a favour , you only ask that they pay for light, dustbin and feeding. Is not fair you married a wife to a man and also buy him bed to sleep with her. That will make him a lazy youth or man.

do they have any " tenacy agreement" with the landlord ? No. you can forcefully evict them. They have no document to back up their residency in that flat.

Once the notice elapses, just change the locks to the main entrance and travel for 3 days. I'm sure no one would dare break the door. The one that locked up too won't have access until you are on ground.


This is why I'm super reluctant to share another flat, my DJ flattie now is a wonderful human being. Who knows, I might meet your kind of flatmates if I dare change. It is well o.

Nobody thought of your safety after evicting them with police,soldier or lawyer...they can plan you up n even kill you since they know your house n routines....just quietly save n rent a house n move on .. delete them from Facebook n change your line if possible just silently disappear n never reconnect with them again they are bunch of ingrates n parasites...I rest my case.

Number 1. What did you need a 3 bedroom flat for, you sound single , if you were married is a different case or using the other rooms as an office.

Anyways let's get to the main case, my dad is a landlord and I know how some tenants sometimes can be funny. If I were in your shoes. I wouldn't renew, I will just take excuse from Landlord to gimme 2 months, then when they won't be expecting I will get a new flat, self con preferably then move without telling them, these are the possible scenarios
a. Landlord didn't give them the house so he wouldn't even look at their faces to eject them
b. They are on a monthly payment plan and their payment has expired they can't sue you


But now that they wouldn't leave
a. Do not make any attempt to break their door, the moment you do haa that's when someone will tell you 10 million was in the room
b. Start by cutting off electricity to their rooms
c. Then change the main lock to your room, lock it up for 2 days without coming home but be prepared to be locked out too but anyone that mistakenly tries that, Just use community street shouting type to send him off your house, neighbors will add mouth to the matter
d. Unfortunate you can't do c because cohabiting another tenants and collecting money was against the agreement the landlord issued.

Intact all of una be the same thing
