    I let this guy move in with me a little over a year ago. For most of that time he was unemployed. As of 5/15 he has found a good job and purchased a car. I am renting my house and he isn't on the lease. The landlord does know he is here. He hasn't held up his part of our verbal agreement to pay $400 a month. He paid $400 in July and $200 in August. He said he only paid $200 because he was hardly here and was staying somewhere else. We have since had arguments via text and cell about him not paying the rest of the money for August. He told me on Wednesday 8/26/15 that he was moving out this weekend. I haven't seen him since Tuesday 8/25/15. I sent him a text today Sunday 8/30/15 asking when he was coming for his stuff. He replied that he had 30 days to move out. Can I get my landlord involved to have him removed immediately or does he get 30 days? If he does get 30 days, what can I do to make sure that he does leave in 30 days?

    There is no quick way, just the legal way.

    Some people offer to pay these deadbeats $300, $500, or even a $1,000 to entice them to leave quickly.
    Don't pay the deadbeat until he or she is gone, and all of their junk has bene removed, and they've signed an agreement to leave, accepted money in lieu of being sued, and handed you back your keys.

    If you choose that route, IMMEDIATELY change the locks.

    Never ever allow anyone to stay overnight at your home.

    You have to follow the eviction law in GA and use the court system to get this donkey outta your barn.
    Read these links, and Google "Eviction YOUR COUNTY, GA" for exactly how its done in your county. Be advised, evictions can take 6 to 12 weeks depending on how populous your county is:
