Why do you think he would sign it? Now he lives there, and only your LL can evict him, you have no power to. Which means YOU will likely get evicted since subletting is not allowed. Unfortunately, yes he has rights. YOU invited him to live there. So now he does. Paying or not does not affect what his rights are.

You can have him sign whatever you want, but it's not enforceable. Roomates cannot kick each other out, whether or not they are included on the lease. Only the landlord can evict. You need to call your landlord, tell him what's going on, and see if he will evict your roomate. Understand that he can evict you, too, for violating the lease by moving someone else onto HIS property. You can offer to pay for the cost of the eviction, for starters, to attempt to avoid this. If you barr your roomate access to the property in any way, you will be sued. The second you accepted money from him (or 14 days passed), he became a tenant, albeit illegally, and you cannot force him out by any other means than eviction through the court. This is why you NEVER allow someone to move in with you without the landlord's permission and/or adding them to the lease- because you have zero recourse when they default.

If he is not on the lease, he is technically not responsible for anything. If you have someone staying with you for more than 7 days, you are to inform your landlord. BUT, this also means that you can kick him out at anytime because technically, he is just a guest, not your room mate, but don't expect to get your money back. Next time, make sure to put your roommate on the lease

If you have a rental agreement, they are your tenant. You will have to give 30 days notice and if he refuses to move out, you'll have to proceed with a legal eviction process.
