I recently received won a property at an auction that was recently deeded to my company. When I had initially purchased the property, I noticed that the location and mailing addresses were not the same. My assumption is that the owners are renting the home to tenants. My desire is to have the tenants leave so I can sell the property asap!
Since tenants are still there, what can I do to have them removed from the premises without going to court? (I was told that the process of having them removed could take up to 1 year.)
For example, could I offer them to pay their local moving expenses? I want to make this issue resolve as peacefully as possible.
@Priscilla B Walker Ask for a copy of their lease. See if they are paying rent or are squatters and how long they've been there. You can offer them cash to move, but if they are squatters, they may want more money than you are willing to pay. Try that option and if it doesn't work, hire an eviction attorney.
