Normally need to follow procedure and issue 30 day notice and then evict in court.

In emergencies such as these, consider a police restraining order which would have the effect of requiring him to relocate.

another option is to negotiate a settlement, paying some amount for moving costs and convincing him to leave to avoid such escalations in court which would make it hard for him to find a place.

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.
