Legal Question

Asked on: 3/24/10, 10:09 am

I am the owner of the house and also live there. I verbally asked my roommate to move out in November when my fiancÚ moved in. He quit paying rent in November. Also I asked him to stop smoking in the house. He has made no attempt to move out and it is now March. We gave him written notice in March to be out by middle of April but he has begun smoking constantly in the house. My fiancÚ is allergic to the smoke and it is making her sick, He is also leaving ash on the bathroom floor and sink, who knows what his room looks like. Can we remove his stuff and change the locks? Does the verbal in November count or do we have to put up with him for three more weeks? Do we have any legal action that we can take?
