Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
Yes, you can do that. If you know the address of the former vendor, you should send her a demand letter demanding that she not come near the property, otherwise you will call the police. Send a demand letter to this effect, otherwise you will pursue legal action against her, seeking an restraining order against her. Send this letter certified, return receipt requested, as well as a copy sent regular mail. Keep a copy for yourself, as well as the return receipt number so that you can show the court that you made the demand,.
If she comes onto your property and won't leave when you tell her to, call the police. You have a right to have unwelcome guests removed from your property.
If she continues to be a problem, file for a temporary restraining order.
You should get a lawyer to assist you with this, so you can make sure that you meet all of your legal obligations regarding restraining orders.
If she causes actual damages to you or your property, you can also sue for monetary damages. You can do this in small claims court.
Should I use a lawyer to send the initial letter?
No, I don't think that is necessary. She will either get the point or not, and I don't think that having a lawyer will necessarily help.
