We have offered them help to find somewhere however other family members are claiming they have every right to stay in my property until they die

Ok. You need to send them a letter asking them to move or say you will seek a court order. If they refuse then you need to complete form N5 - - send this to the county court. It will be set down for a hearing and a judge will decide whether to give possession. Bearing in mind they have no agreement and paid no rent, the judge will grant possession. Can I clarify anything for you about this today please? Alex
