Hello, and welcome. I am a licensed attorney and happy to assist.
Has that lawyer provided you any supporting documents?
Under the circumstances, I presume you have recorded title to the house. If that is the case, you can pursue an eviction action against the persons living at the property. In the event they have actual title, that will be that become known through the process. Otherwise, they will have to leave. Chances are if the people living in the property had actual legal title, the property would never have been sold. It may be a good idea to check the website of your County Court, doing a search for the name of the person living at the property, to get information about any potential previous quiet title lawsuits and the court disposition in them. It is definitely not unheard of for somebody t pretend to be an attorney in a phone call or even a meeting to assist a friend or relative out of the legal bind. I think you need more information before determining that what you were told is true.
