If you own the property, then you have the exclusive right to grant possession to others in the form of a lease or other rental agreement (oral or written). Anyone on your property without your authority, or under license from someone without authority, is a trespasser and can be summarily removed. If you do nothing, the trespasser may eventually claim that you have lost the right to remove them, and thus trigger issues of "adverse possession", meaning you could lose the ownership of the property. You should contact an attorney in your area to discuss the specific facts and local laws as may relate to your situation, but you should do it quickly.

In former times squatters were people who lived on the common land. They didn't own any land and could be forced out of where they were living at any time.
