Legal Question

Asked on: 10/02/11, 5:05 pm

I have tenants who refuse to pay. They also refuse to answer any of my attempts to contact them, Knowing I live out of state this is very frustrating. I have started the eviction process but they told my son who served them with the three day notice, they will leave when they want.

My question is; after they have been served with eviction papers, can I move into my house even though they are still living there refusing to leave? Or can I enter the home and remove their things and change the locks. They have already stolen property that belonged to me from my own home.

You need to get an order of eviction.
