    Default Ex Boyfriend/Roomate Refuses to Move Out or Pay Rent

    My question involves a roommate in the State of: Louisiana

    My ex boyfriend and myself are Now broken up. I agreed to let him stay with me as a roomate afterwards because he "has no where to go". Well recently thing are getting bad, violent, and property is getting damaged. I asked him to leave and he refuses to. The cops said I have to legally evict him. The lease is in my name as the lease holder and he is on it as an occupant. He pays no bills, everything is in my name. All of the furniture in the apartment is mine. We made a verbal agreement after we broke up as a condition for him staying there he would pay me 200$ a month. (that's 1/3 of the monthly rent not including utilities, and Seein as he has no job, I thought that was fair)

    I feel Like I have even less rights then him being that I'm responsible for everything an he's just a freeloader, and yet I can't kick him out .

    I'm about to move into another place.. Is it legal for me to sale all of my furniture ?(some of which he is using, I.e bed, dressor, couch etc?)

    Also he has not paid me any of the 200/month we verbally agreed on

    The cops said I have to legally evict him.
    The police are correct. You can read about the procedure here. You can also take him to small claims for the rent he owes you, but if he's unemployed, that would be rather a fool's errand.

    Is it legal for me to sale all of my furniture ?
    Yes. One assumes you can prove that it is all yours, and your boyfriend didn't purchase any of it?
