What can I do about evicting someonewho is not paying rent and who does not have a lease?

My niece has been living in my mother’s house for the last couple of years without paying rent. My mother has decided to sell the place and has asked my niece to leave. We got the cops called on us as we were documenting the stuff she was taking (my mother has stuff in the house also). We were told that my neice had established residency and that we were not allowed to be there while she took her stuff. She has not gotten all of her belongs out yet and we need to know what we need to do to make sure that she only takes what is hers.
