I recently had a nephew move out of my house after 11 years. He did not tell me he was moving out, or that he was moving out or that he had moved out. He took some of my personal property with him and returned later to take some other items. In addition he did some damage to my house and trees. I did change the locks because he did not return the house keys, but the problem is not only with him but also with his mother, who was basically paying for his room and board is still here and of course sides with him and defends him from “my attacks”. I cannot be sure if she uses the new locks or she is letting him onto the property. Is there anyway of using the courts to bar him from coming onto my property? In another thought, can I kick her out because of that or just plain kick her out. I live in Maryland and I am 66 years old.

If she's lived there for a long period of time, you would probably have to evict her through the courts.

You might want to look into getting a restraining order against the nephew to keep him off your property, I'm not sure if the court would issue one now that he's already moved out of his own accord. If you have proof he took your property though, you could file theft charges against him.

Get a restraining order against the nephew and start the legal process (you will want to be guided by a lawyer) of evicting the mother. Document the damage that was done and list what he took and total the value.

Are you charging her rent - or was she living off you free? It is possible that she can just be removed. Let her move in with her son. What a stupid woman she is. My guess is he son will not let her live with him. Stupid, stupid woman.

If she is a renter on your property, and you do not live there I don't see how the courts can prevent him from visiting his own mother, even if it is your property. Restraining orders involve fear of someone doing something physical to you personally. If you do live on the same property, then you may be able to get one.
I would do as others have suggested, file criminal charges for theft of property. But, you will have to have proof. And, make sure that you do want to put your nephew in prison, because certain dollar amounts equal felonies...You'll have to find out what those are in your area. If you are evicting your sister, than I hope it is for a good reason.
Sounds like an ugly family situation. Hope it works out.

Your post is not clear at all. Is this woman your sister and was she also a tenant in the house? You said she was paying HIS room and board, but than you state that she is "still there". Did she take over his empty room or was she living in the house all along?

I'm assuming she does live there or how else would she have keys to the new locks. Also do you live in the house as well? Did you give her new keys?

You need to be more clear as to what the situation is.

She is my sister in law, the son my nephew. She pays rent in the form of utilities and food for the household. I also live in the house. She has keys because she works and needs access to the property, I cannot trust her as far as her son is concerned. She blames me for everything that happens to in the house, real trivial stuff that does not need mentioning, a classic complainer. I took her in with the house she was living in was sold. She later injured her self on the job and received medical compensation for the injury through her part-time job with the Federal Govt. She has recovered, but states she’s waiting for a compensation settlement from the Fed so she can move out. Considering her medical services received for the injuries was a ‘nice’ compensation for her, I don’t understand why she should get more.

If the house you both live in is in your name only, you can give her 30 days notice and then serve her with eviction papers. If she's not out by the date specified in the eviction notice, you can call the sheriff to have her escorted off your property. That's how it works in Colorado, anyhow.

Her medical injury and any possible compensation she may or may not get from the government don't have anything to do with anything. That's her concern, not yours - unless there is more to this story than what you've told us so far.
