A friend came to stay with me for a few days now its a month and he won't leave. He told me he is not leaving my house till he is ready to leave . What can I do to get him out legally fast as possible.
You would have to evict him at this point. He's considered a "tenant at will" if you have no lease and he pays no rent or the equivalent. You would serve him with a 5-day no cause notice for his tenancy at will, followed by an unlawful detainer notice. If he still doesn't leave, file for an eviction order with the court.
The safe and smart approach is to give a five-day notice to quit the tenancy at will and if the person refuses to leave, then do a five-day notice period for unlawful detainer. There is a civil law self-help center in the court house (200 Lewis Ave.) that will provide the documents free of charge.
A less safe approach could be to call the police and have the person removed. The less time a person is there, the more likely he is considered a "guest" and not a "tenant". This would also require that there is not rental agreement and no rent or other services provided in lieu of rent. However, the longer the stay, the more the person contributes to rent/lights/cleaning/etc. the more its heading towards a tenancy at will and the better off you are doing the eviction process to avoid any issues
