The shortest distance between two points is a straight line ... and in your case, you should make a straight line for an attorney.
But this is an online forum, so I bet you want some online answers, right?
(1) Serve a 3-Day Notice to Quit. You can find it here: http://www.courtinfo.ca.gov/selfhelp/other/landtenqa-land8.htm. You'll want to use the "Nail and Mail" option for service. You do that by (a) taping the notice where he can see it; and (b) sending it via certified mail to him at your address.
(2) Wait and see if he complies with your notice. Definitely store his stuff for him until he can make arrangements to get it. NEVER be alone with him.
(3) Change EVERY lock IMMEDIATELY.
(4) File a restraining order if abused you.
Good luck. Let me know if you need any other help!... more
