Do I need to go to court or can I use the police to kick out squatters?
/

My brother and I started a property business five years ago. Our initial capital was 10 acre piece of land which we inherited from our late grandfather. The property was a lease hold with a term of 99 years beginning from 1st January 2004. 

Our late grandfather’s farm manager who lived nearby promised he could take care and show it around as we identified buyers. So we got the title transferred to our company, and started marketing it. 

Imagine our shock therefore when a potential buyer who visited, said that we had to clear the structures first before he could buy. We rushed to the site to find that the farm manager’s sons had set up mud houses on one corner of the farm and were living there with their families. They claimed they had been born and always lived there and that it is the only home they know. 

We are saddened by the betrayal but need to kick these trespassers out. Can we do it with the Provincial Administration or do we have to go to court?
