Several years ago I let a family member move in with me who was jobless and down on his luck. I moved away to take job elsewhere and let him continue living in my home with the understanding that he would become self-reliant and move out eventually. While I was away, he proceeded to move his new girlfriend into the house - Without my express permission - who is divorced with two children., The children are also coming to stay at the house every other weekend. We have no rental agreement - since he was never intended to be a tenant - and he pays a portion of the utility bills when he sees fit to do so. While I was working elsewhere, I still returned to my home for periodic weekend or vacation stays.
I recently moved back to my house full time and and I would like for my nuisance guests to move out. I have talked with them on numersous occasions about finding their own place but they have failed to make a concerted effort in making this a reality. Both parties are employed full time and they can afford to live elsewhere.
It does not matter that he was never intended to be a tenant - sounds like he has obtained resident/occupant status. You can attempt to evict him but you may not use self-help. What that means is you cannot just change the locks on the door and put their stuff out by the curb.
