I purchased a townhouse daughter and grandson to live

Customer Question
I purchased a townhouse for...
I purchased a townhouse for my daughter and grandson to live in, in the state of Georgia.
My daughter and I had a verbal agreement that, I would pay mortgage, insurance and taxes but she would have to pay all utilities and the monthly HOA fee, and that there would be no
"live-ins." She has since taken up with a 21year old that has a criminal record in Georgia.
He is now living there without my consent and/or approval. She has threatened to not let me be a part of my grandson's life if I do anything to ruin her happiness.
Is it possible to have him removed and sited for trespassing?
I am concerned about "Squatters Rights," AKA: Adverse Possession.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
