Good evening. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Has he threatened you or hurt you physically?
Thank you for the additional information.
Your boyfriend has the rights of a month to month tenant.
That means that if you lock him out you run the risk that he will sue you for unlawful eviction. He may also come with the police and demand to be allowed access to his home and you would be forced to let him back in.
You can change the locks if you want to gamble that he will just go somewhere else, as long as you know the risk.
Also, if he does threaten you, call the police. They will take him out and you can get an order of protection to legally prohibit him form coming back.
Are you still online with me?
If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for assisting you.
There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.
A bonus is not expected, but is always appreciated.
If you terminate and move out then his right to occupy ends as well.
Unless, of course, he comes to his own arrangement with the landlord.
Thank you for using JA. Best of luck!!
