You have to evict him.

It seems that because you don't have a written lease agreement, it is a month-to-month tenancy. You need to give him written notice to vacate 30 days in advance and keep proof of sending him the notice. If he still does not vacate, you would then have to file an eviction notice. If he still does not vacate, you would have to get the court involved.

If you want to retain our office we will commence eviction proceedings. That is the only way to get him out. Our fees are as low as $1,500.00.
