I live in Colorado and own land in . I am wanting to sell it

Customer Question

I live in Colorado and own land in Washington. I am wanting to sell it but there is a squatter there who has moved in her "stuff' and is running the realtor off. A couple years ago, she even put in a new well pump without my permission. At that time, I went out there and made her rent the land and she paid for about a year then she quit paying. I went back put there and her stuff was off the land. I have called the sheriff but they say it's a civil matter.
What can I do?

Can you tell me how long the person has been living there?

.

Do you know the person?

.

How long ago did she stop paying rent?

.

Was there an agreed on amount of rent?

.

And the obvious question.... is there some reason why you didn't move to evict her once she stopped paying rent?

.

.

thanks
