A family is occupying the home I recently purchased, after foreclosure was filed by the previous owner. They have no lease with the previous owner and have not paid rent. What law can I invoke to force them to move?
Generally the only way to get them out is an eviction as suggested above. You should consult an attorney to have a notice to quit drafted as there can be various potential grounds to put in the notice to quit. If they broke in and are tresspassing your attorney might have other suggestions but I would not do anything without legal advice.See question

Your question does not really state what your damages are. Did you give him money and he did no work? Or are you unhappy with the quality and timelieness of what he did? Or was it just more expensive than anticipated?See question

The answers are good. You need to investigate a short sale. Consult a few local real estate agents experienced in handling short sales for sellers and also speak to your lender about their requirements. The lender will have to approve of the short sale price and will require financial information from you. If it is your principal residence you should be exempt from some or all of the conveyance taxes, I am pretty sure. There will be negative credit consequences but less bad than a foreclosure. There is a lot of information online about short sales, not all of it accurate. Go by what your lender tells you. You will need to know the value to see if it is s short sale or by how much and people usually use a CMA from an agent, although an appraisal us an option too from an appraiser. And you will need an attorney who has short sale experience also.See question
I do have title insurance on my home. How do I know if its expanded title insurance. I'm having a property line dispute with my neighbor. Will my policy cover for the survey, fence and attorney fee.

Is this normal? My aunt is executor and thinks she cannot change attorneys before estate is settled. Is that true? What advice can you give!
The fee is subject to probate court approval and seems extraordinarily large. The fee must have some relationship to the work done. An beneficiary can challenge the final accounting including the fee.See question
