What you have is a house guest who has overstayed their welcome. There is very little law concerning this situation. Many people might take the bull by the horns and simply change the locks and put that person's property out on the porch. That risks the person claiming that they have a rental agreement and have been unlawfully evicted. You can end up in court over that. A frequent suggestion is to send that person a written notice to vacate by a certain date and time. The notice would state that their failure to do so will result in them No longer having access to the home for either themselves or their personal property. Then, have a good lawyer standing by.
