Hello there --
If they are simply boarding there and not really paying any rent then your mother can telephone the police to have them removed and if she is having problems with the boyfriend's behavior your Mom can also file a restraining order against him so that he may not come back around again to bother her any longer. My suggestion is that you tell your Mom to do this as soon as possible because once they get to 6 months of living there, they can claim that they are formal boarders/renters (even if they do not pay rent) and the police will not kick them out at that point -- forcing your mother to give them a written notice of eviction and to go to the local eviction court if they do not move from the house within the time set forth in the notice.
