Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Will there be a problem on my part for changing the locks and removing his items that were in the room?
Only if he sues you for the illegal eviction. That is a separate matter from your current eviction action and it would be up to the tenant whether he wants to pursue some type of civil suit against you and seek damages.
As long as you gave him proper notice to terminate his tenancy, then all you need to do is appear and provide proof that you gave him proper notice and that he has violated the terms of the lease and you should get a judgment in your favor.
As long as you are just renting him a room and not the entire house, then there is nothing that would prevent you from staying there if there is room..
