Can my boyfriend just throw me out of the apartment?

Q: He asked me to move in with him. I moved out of my apartment and in with him 5 years ago. But sometimes we have issues because his grown daughter & sister are living with us. It’s been up & down putting a strain on our relationship. He has threatened to put me out if he wants to. Can he do that? (Munhall, PA)

A: If this is a lease and you are on it with him, he cannot throw you out. If he is on the lease only or owns the house, he must follow the law and evict you through the court process. If you have invested any money in his home or apartment, you may have a claim but would need to review this with an attorney.
