Well, he needs to be treated as a tenant. Who owns the property? Is he on the lease?
I see. Yes, I am going to tell you your rights. You have given him the 30 day Notice to Vacate. Now, if he does not you will need to follow the eviction process. You can get those forms from the Court and file them. You will have a hearing within 5 days, the Court will grant you a Writ of Possession, you give it the sheriff, they serve it on him and remove him from your property.
As to repair costs, if he does not willingly pay, then you will need to file in small claims court. You can pursue that after he has been evicted from your home.

If you served him with the Notice to leave and he has, then you can take that as he is following your demand. Change your locks and do not let him back in. You have given him notice and he left. If he has any belongs, tell him you will arrange for a time for him to retrieve them. Yes, you may return the beds.
You will need to sue him for anything that you feel he owes you, as I doubt he will be giving you any money.
Yes, you can take the beds. You do not need to furnish anything.
IF you have someone living with you, you set the terms. For instance, you can say the use of the appliances such as the washer and dryer are on Saturdays from 10 to noon. Or you do not have to allow them use of them at all.
Obviously, you cannot restrict necessities such as water use or electric but you can make them pay for what they use.
I apologize for not getting back to you sooner.
Again, you do not. You should be going to the court house and getting the eviction documents filed. NO. You do not need to supply him anything. You are evicting him.
Under the law you must provide a living environment for any tenant. You may not turn off the electric but you can prohibit use of any applicances. You need to go to Superior Court and file for the eviction. I cannot continue to tell you this any differently then what I have already explainted to you.
