1. Send a lawyer's notice by revoking the agreement and call upon him to quit and vacate the house.  Since the tenant is a defaulter and has created third party rights, the lease gets forfeited. You can also require him in the legal notice to pay outstanding rent. 

2. You can immediately file a case for his eviction by terminating the lease by giving a 15 days lawyer's notice. You can also recover arrears of rent from him.
