If someone is evicted, are they allowed to visit old friends on the property? My understanding was that if you are evicted, you have no right to come back to property for any reason. Hope someone can clarify this for me. I am in Northern California.
 
Thank you.

Unfortunately, the current tenants have rights too.  Few states allow you to forbid them from being on the property because you have evicted them.  The police have told me that I cannot ban anyone from the property as long as the current tenant invites them to be there. 
 
That said, you can let your current tenant know that you do not want the former tenant on the property.  If they continue to allow the old tenant to be there, do not renew the new tenant's lease when it comes up.  If on a month-to-month, you can terminate their tenancy with a 30 day notice and not give them a reason.  They'll know why, but DON'T give a reason.

Thank you for your reply. I have been in this crazy business for 10 years and have heard different views on this subject. I do hope the law is the same in California.

Actually, the people evicted were fromer managers at this property. It took forever to get them out and they left lots of damage. The other residents here are not thrilled to see them visiting property.

Peg, if you are from CA, they probably are allowed on the property.  CA is one of the most tenant friendly states I've heard of.  Does the owner of the property know that they are visiting there?  You may want to drop them a line, even if you do it anonymously.  Let them know who they are visiting.  Maybe the owner will have more clout.  An evicted visitor is one thing, but a fired employee coming back on business property may be different.  There may be a law to prevent a fired employee from returning.

Thank you for your reply. It took awhile for me to get logged in again to site. I will check into the owners ideas of letting previous employees back on site.
