Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Yes, this is civil, which is why the police are not going to get involved. It is not a situation whereby there was a breaking and entering, as they were given permission to reside and stay there by a tenant who did have legal possession of the rental. However, it does not mean that they can stay. As such, you need to evict ALL parties and ALL parties should be named when you file. Typically, a plaintiff will name ALL known tenants and then also serve and seek to evict Unknown Tenant 1 and Unknown Tenant 2, if their names are ***** ***** but the landlord knows there are people residing there. Those tenants who subleased can go after the tenant for damages, if they desire and you can go so far and speak with the tenants and share with them if they do not vacate, you will evict them.
