Thanks for your question and good evening.
He would become a month to month tenant here.If you break up you would have to give him thirty days notice and then file to evict him.He would never acquire any ownership interest.But you would have to evict him here if you are the legal owner of the property.I think a lease here would be a great idea especially if he is paying rent.It protects you and you can evict on shorter three day notice if he quits paying.But thats your call here.
If you have a follow-up question, please remember that there might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other clients or taking a break.

He would not have any legal claims to your property here as it is your sole property and time would not change this.You owned it prior to any relationship.
Did you have more follow up?
If you have more questions please just ask.Thanks again.
