|Neutering would only affect hormonal marking behaviour, which would be him hiking his leg on choice objects (Generally around the edges of his territory) and piddling, to keep other dogs away. Dogs often mark without a hormonal reason, too, just to say, "This thing is mine."
Onyx is right: this dog was never housetrained. It's going to be hard to re-train him. Try getting your friends the book "Housetraining for Dummies". Hopefully they won't be offended by it, but it will be information from a "professional" or "expert", in an easy-to-understand format, that will back up everything Onyx just said =) I'm a huge fan of tethering, crating, established potty schedules, and bells. Peach is learning how to ring her bells to let us know she has to go outside and master the outdoors, it's very easy for almost any dog to catch on to. Perhaps the book and some doggie door bells? You can find them under the brand "Poochie Bells", also on Etsy by the same tag.
