One couple has not had the luxury of experiencing empty-nest syndrome because their 30-year-old son refuses to move out of their home. So, they took him to court.
Mark and Christina Rotondo sued their son, Michael, to get him to leave their house after living there rent free for eight years, People reports. A judge has ruled in favor of the parents Tuesday.
Before the couple took legal action, they tried to reason with him by writing him letters and even offered him $1,100 to help him get on his feet. The son still refused to fly the coop.
“After a discussion with your Mother, we have decided that you must leave this house immediately,” Mark wrote to Michael, according to CBS Philly. “You have 14 days to vacate. You will not be allowed to return. We will take whatever actions are necessary to enforce this decision.”
Finally, his parents had enough and took legal action.
“Michael Joseph Rotondo, You are hereby evicted from [home address] effective immediately,” the eviction letter reads.
Michael --who represented himself in court -- said his parents did not give him the six months notice that is required to evict someone.
But, the judge still did not side with him. Once the judge ruled that Michael would have to leave his parents house in 30 days, he told reporters that the ruling was simply "outrageous."
