Just because you don't have it on paper doesn't mean you don't have a contract. There is something called an ORAL CONTRACT -- an agreement between 2 parties without the benefit of it being on paper. If this guy is getting mail at your place, he can prove he lives there. If he is there for 30 days, he is a resident.

Why not be a man and speak to him??? Why come here asking people if you can throw his things out?? You're saying it's beyond your "social grasp to ask a grown man to radically improve..." Well, it's beyong others' "social grasp" that you wouldn't do the right thing and simply ASK him to leave instead of being a back-stabbing coward and just putting his items out on the street.

Grow up, be a man, speak to your room-mate.

Wow, I've heard of people doing some nasty things before but seriously? Throwing anyone's things on a curb without even giving them a hint of warning is just plain cruel... and illegal. Why can't you just have an honest face-to-face talk with him without all of the legalities? The law is really designed to be a last resort. Can't you just very simply tell him it isn't working out and give him some time to find another place? That would seem like the logical/wise/mature/ethical thing to do, IMHO.
