@Storm S. - I know CA have specific tenant laws, but I would assume he would be considered a holdover
Whose tenant is he, yours or your landlords. If he originally signed a lease with your landlord and you have now signed a new lease without him on it then he is your problem. He becomes a friend staying in your apartment. Call the police and have him removed if they will do it. Or alternately put his belongings on the curb.
If you want your landlord to deal with him as a hold over he will need to evict all of you since it is you that will be in violation of your new lease by having a unauthorised guest.
Because you are in beautiful CA you may have no rights at all. Your attorney is really the only one that can answer or another landlord operating in your same jurisdiction.
