You have to get back to basics. Who is the tenant under the lease? That is who is entitled to occupancy. If the lease says that someone else can also occupy (which it probably does not) then you're okay. Read the lease carefully. You always have to start there.

You need a lawyer. The lease is with you not your partnership. He may have breached. Get a lawyer to look the lease over. You need to move quick on this to avoid eviction.
