If you have squatters, it can be a very difficult situation but it is still possible to sell your home. Squatters are people who use an unused or abandoned property as their home without permission from the owner. The first step to selling your home if you have squatters is to know the law so you can avoid any issues with the squatters. Next you should talk to the police and try to get them to remove the squatters. If that fails you will have to begin the eviction process by getting an eviction notice and then possibly starting a unlawful detainer lawsuit if they still refuse to leave.
