Is there a written lease agreement in effect. If not, without breaching a lease, give them a written 30 day notice to vacate. If they don't leave, you can file an eviction petition. I would consult with a landlord-tenant attorney in your area for further guidance.
Forcible entry and detainer action in justice court (evict them).
Ask the lawyer that represents you as executor as you will be acting in that capacity. If you have not yet probated the will and been appointed as executor, hop to it. You must have a lawyer to serve as executor.
Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services. My Avvo posts are based on limited information provided and are not intended as conclusive legal advice.
Have you submitted the will for probate? If no, that is the first step so you can be appointed executor by the court. Once officially appointed, you can evict the tenants. Speak with a probate attorney to help you with the process.

Submit the will for probate, then file in JP court to evict. Make sure you make the estate the plaintiff in the JP suit too.

Start the probate process. Get a lawyer to help you with that. Then get the lawyer to start the eviction process as well. Good luck with this!!!
