Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.

You can send them a three day notice to pay rent or leave and then file for forcible entry and detainer eviction suit. The tenant is served with hearing date and your suit and you go to court on that date.Court will grant eviction order and you have sheriff serve it and them and their stuff are evicted.They would be charged with trespassing if they return after that and they are so warned.

Here is the three day notice-hopefully they decide to leave after you serve it on them.

You are noticing them to pay rent ( you state the amount you want here for rent )or move out.Otherwise you will evict them and seek court costs and fees.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
