My tenant ("Joe") just gave me notice he wishes to move out. His new roommate ("Bob"), that moved in a couple months ago, wants to stay. I don't want him to stay. My lease with Joe doesn't include Bob. Joe broke an agreement in the lease by having Bob move in without my permission, and renting a room (which I also see as a violation of the 'no subletting' rule in the lease agreement). In addition, letting Bob bring in a dog (also without permission).
Now that Joe is having problems with Bob, he's moving out and leaving me to deal with it. I explained to Bob that he cannot stay, we had no agreement, and I never gave him permission to live there in the first place. But he's crying foul and asking me "where am I supposed to go with my kid within a month?" A kid? I never knew of or saw any kid! I doubt he has full custody. He's mentioned that he'll call lawyers to determine his rights, but as far as I see it, he has none. Joe violated the lease by moving Bob in without permission, and no agreement.
What rights does he have? What am I allowed to do? When Joe moves out and if it looks like Bob doesn't, I want to assume that everything in there belonged to Joe and I will put them in storage and change the locks. Is that legal? If I have problems with Bob, can I charge Joe from his security deposit?
