A: You should have hired an attorney to prosecute a problem Detainer, and you might want to now. Is the Writ of Possession issued? If not ask Court to issue or hire an attorney. Later you may need to file another Detainer Warrant against occupants and start the process again. But the execution of the Writ should make occupants not want to hang around.
