Yes, he's been here for over a year, we told him a year ago to leave. We keep telling him to leave but he wont. He's never paid rent, done work around the house, nothing to earn his keep.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
He has no contract with us to live here,

Thanks for the update.
Unfortunately, the boyfriend ("BF") is your tenant, legally speaking, and you cannot just summarily throw him out and change the locks.
When a person stays somewhere 30 days or more, they're generally considered to be a tenant, even if they don't have a written lease. That means you'll have to evict him like you would any person who paid you rent and who you had a lease agreement with.
If he commits an illegal act - threatens you, destroys something, has drugs in the house, etc., then call the police ASAP and get him out that way. You don't have to tolerate illegal activity from a tenant. Absent those circumstance, you'll need to evict him.
You start the eviction process by serving him with an eviction notice. Tell him in writing any lease he has is terminated and he must vacate the premises within 30 days.
CA has great online forms to do this. Click here and search:
http://www.courts.ca.gov/1290.htm
You don't have to use these forms. Keep in mind the notice must be in writing to be legally valid.
I'm sorry to bring you bad news, but I do hope my response has been helpful. If you have follow-up questions or concerns on this topic, please ask. I'll get back to you as quickly as I can, although I may not be online at the moment you respond.
Otherwise, I hope you will rate my answer positively as that is the ONLY way I receive credit for my work, and doing so will NOT cost you an additional fee.
Best wishes to you, Customer

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
