In a situation like this, if the tenant remains, they would be holding over. The only way to legally get them out, would be through court proceedings at that time and obtain a court order, so they need to vacate and if they remain, then the Sheriff could remove them. Anything outside of a court action, would have to come through you negotiating with them, to leave. However, you should be aware that using self help, to get him out, is illegal. By that, I mean if you were to change the locks or throw his stuff on the street, he could come back and sue you, if he wanted to.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
