We've been renting to tenants at our house in another city for about 7 months, we've only receive a months rent from them during this duration. We have no lease. We've spoken to them about needing to pay or we would have to have them leave. Without a lease, do we still need to give them a thirty-day notice of eviction?

You can give them a seven day notice, but then you still need to go through the court and file a Forcible Entry and Detainer action against them. Any attempt at eviction without a court order is illegal.
