We are renting the whole house. The family came to stay with us while we were away
We haven't signed anything with them.
We've been asking them to leave since 3 months ago and they don't want to. I gave them a notice of eviction and they went to the agency to show that letter to them. The agency called me and said that I am in breach with my contract and we would probably have to leave the property because of them
And now I am wondering can I ask them in that case for them to cover all the rent and the bills as I've been paying them all those months
Ok - yes you can ask them to cover the rent and the bills.
But the bad news is that if they do not pay you would be liable for the RENT for that period. This is because I assume you signed a tenancy agreement with the Landlord.
If you want them to move out then you are going to need a Court order.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
