i was caring for life time friend he passed away.i was living with him in his house
Was there any documentation connecting you to the property?; to wit.. did he a leave a will specifically bequeathing the home to you? Did he die intestate (no will), with absolutely no surviving heirs at law? Were you reflected as a vested owner on the deed? In summation, are you legally connected to the home in any way?...or were you simply residing in the home as a guest, thereby having no legal entitlement, per se, to the home. More facts are required to give a definitive response.

As Mr. Nozzolillo stated, your rights will depend on whether he gave any to you through will or trust. If not, then you have no legal right to stay in the house, unless his estate or whomever inherits it consents.
In the absence of anything in a deed or a will giving you a life estate or other rights then you do not have a legal right to remain in the house.
My answer is for general information only and does not imply that any attorney-client relationship has been created.
