Jackson, OH asked in Land Use & Zoning, Landlord - Tenant and Real Estate Law for Ohio

Q: We own the house and the land that house directly sits on. My aunts bf owns the property. Can he "evict" us off property

We both the house from his brother and have a title to the house. The house came with the land that house directly sits on. He's constantly saying that if we don't pay him $X amount each month he will call the sherriff and have us removed. We pay our own property taxes as it is. His mom lived before us and he tried to do the same to his brother. The sherriff said that they could only do a no trespass if his mom (owner of that home) agreed to it.
