A: Are you the owner/landlord? Provide the appropriate Notice to Quit.

Are you one of the other tenants? Talk to your landlord.

If this does not work to get them to voluntarily resolve the situation, you need to consult with a local Landlord/Tenant attorney. I'm not sure what this has to do with libel or estate planning, but this is a Landlord/Tenant issue, and you need a local lawyer if the 'bad' tenant won't voluntarily remove him/herself.
