tenant rights? no lease signed by Jesse (Illinois ) on December 28, 2011 @11:16

                              
What are the laws, rules or any protection for a resident living in a home where utilities are serviced in their name and mail is delivered to that person but they didn't sign the lease?. They have lived in the home for more than 30 days.

You are unclear if this
"resident" is a guest or an accepted tenant who just hasn't signed the lease. Has this person ever paid any rent or security?

Unless this is an uninvited squatter, they have the same rights as a tenant on a month to month rental agreement.

The landlord has the right to terminate with 30 days written notice and so does the tenant.

They have lived in the home for 4 months and have paid rent each month.

Obviously we are not getting the whole story here, but these people sound like they have established residency in the home.

If you're trying to get rid of them and they won't cooperate, you will need to go through with a legal eviction. Check your state laws, give whatever written notice is required and DOCUMENT it, then go to court if they still refuse to leave.

They have a verbal lease. You must evict or convince them to leave.
