A 30 year old son has been ordered by a Court in New York to move out of his parents' home.
Christina and Mark Rotondo started Court proceedings earlier this month following their sons refusal to move out after 3 months of giving him notice to vacate. The drama started in February of this year when Michael Rotondo was given 14 days to move and indicated that they would take whatever action necessary to enforce their decision. Christina and Mark Rotondo then sought legal advice and served another notice giving Michael 30 days to move out and offered him some advice and US$1,100 to find a new place to live.
Following further requests in March 2018 Michael still refused to leave and ejectment proceedings were commenced. Michael asked the Court to dismiss the request stating he ,"has never been expected to contribute to household expenses, or assisted with chores and the maintenance of the premises, and claims that this is simply a component of his living agreement."
Supreme Court Judge, Donal Greenwood, disagreed and granted the eviction. Michael has since indicated that he will be appealing the ruling and said in a statement to the media, "It seems to me like I should be provided with, you know, 30 days or so, because generally you get 30 days after you're found, you know, to have to vacate the premises. So I'm expecting something like that. But realistically, if that's not the case, I don't know."
Ironically the Court has ruled that Michael must leave the premises within 3 months which would be six months from the date of the first notice given to him in February.
