Bought a triple wide 2004 manufactured home September 2015.

Bought a triple wide 2004 manufactured home September 2015. Seller check no in the box on disclosure [has the roof leaked in the last five years] this winter a patch fell out of our living room cieling. it had obviously been repaired. talking to neighbors told us the previous owners hired someone a few years ago in to attempt to fix the leak. Water was dripping from the hole we had to put a bucket . under the hole. Water stains appeared in the living room ceiling as well as the in the bedroom. We had to have home depot replace the roof. 22 sheets of plywood were used to replace rotten sheeting. also the contractor took pictures and told us there was a mistake that was made when the peices of the home were put together. A repair was attempted by the guy the owners hired to fix the discrepency where the two pieces came together. I was done by trying to level the height discrepence with a few pieces of roofing to bring the height to level grade. this failed. We have the patch and have taken pictures and so did the licensed contractor who did the new roof. $10,700 for the repair. the owners knew but did not disclose, and attempted to cover up the problem.

Is it illegal to ask my former friend to find a new place to live on craigslist or somewhere? He became violent after I helped him in an emergency and took him in my apartment last month. He contributed toward January's rent. He's found a new place he likes. He is very slow to move his stuff out and leaves doors and windows open. What should I do? He says I broke the law. Did I? What should I do?
