When does a guest have rights?

My mother recently allowed a friend to stay at her house while they were “in between” places to live because they claimed their living situation was unsafe. My mother allowed this on an agreed upon two week basis. It has been almost a month and my mom and the friend have had a falling out and the friend is now refusing my mother’s attempts to get him to leave. The landlord/property manager have both attempted to intervene and he has still refused and threatened legal action.
My question is, does he actually have any legal rights? Or can we just call the police and have him removed? Can we just change the locks?
