Hello, I am happy to assist you today.

Your remedy is to have him legally evicted. You need a copy of your deed, and make sure it is recorded in the registry of deeds. Then you file an eviction proceeding against him. It is best to use a lawyer if you are not familiar with this proceeding.

If he still doesn't move out, the sherriff will come physically move him out on the date of eviction.

Take care,
Kimberly
