Squatters & Removals

Learn more about the removal of occupants or "squatters," the rights and duties of owners and occupants, and the court procedures used to enforce those rights and duties. Note that the removal process is different from the eviction process! The removal process cannot be used if there was ever a landlord-tenant relationship between the parties. If you're looking for more information on evictions, landlords, or tenants, visit the Evictions & Housing page.
