If the adult daughter is living in her mother's home as a "guest" and not as a tenant, the mother has the right to ask the daughter to leave the premises whenever the mother deems appropriate.

If the daughter is a tenant in the mother's home, the mother can serve the daughter with a 30 day notice of eviction if the daughter has violated the lease or if the lease is a month-to-month lease and the mother wants the daughter to vacate the premises.
