I have just purchased a multi-family which I'm in the process of renovating and moving into. I inherited a tenant - family of mother, father, kids and a dog. They had no lease with the previous owners and have no lease with me. They're are on a month-month periodic tenancy.
I've given them a 60-day written notice of termination of tenancy - RI law (Section 34-18-37) stipulates only 30 is needed. Still they've refused to acknowledge this notice, claiming I have no right to remove them.
What can I do and what further action do I need to take to ensure that they move out?
