Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'm a litigation attorney. Thanks for your question. I'll be glad to assist.
If they're not tenants (no lease/not paying rent), then they are trespassers and you can file criminal charges against them and have the court order their removal. You'd likely have to go to court, but you could have this dealt with through criminal court, which the squatters should take more seriously and it also should be more serious consequences if they fail or refuse to vacate.
