Good afternoon Helen. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
If they were both living there, and there was no written lease in effect, then they are both month to month tenants.
You can sue him as a tenant of the house and he is responsible for rent and damage to the property.

Is there a written lease in effect or were they both month to month tenants?
If there was no written lease in effect then he and she were both month to month tenants and he is as liable for the rent and damages as she is.
Are you still online with me?
