A: You question fails to state whether the lease was in writing or not. Leases for more than a year must be writing to be enforceable. You may by following statutory Court procedure seek to evict the existing tenants. If the lease is in writing, I do not believe that you will be successful in any eviction proceeding. Speak to a local attorney who is familiar with Landlord-Tenant Law.
