    Lock him out. He has no business being there.

    Need more info on if they have to be evicted or could simply be kicked to the curb. If they pay no rent and haven't been there long they can probably just be asked to leave and if they won't, just move their stuff to the curb and change the locks when they aren't around. If they pay rent or have been there awhile then they may have to be evicted.

      Baloney as usual. Getting mail does NOT constitute tenant/resident status. Please cite relevant Missouri state laws.

    the same thing as any other tenant.

    the person gained legal residency status the moment any agreement was made that they live there.

    doesn't matter if they weren't required to pay rent or didn't have a signed lease.

    they do not have to be there 30 days if the agreement was that they would live there.

    assuming there is not a current lease, you give notice of termination of tenancy IN WRITING according to state law.

    if they fail to move after that, you have to file for eviction in court.

      Can you please cite Missouri State Laws regarding what constitutes a legal tenancy?

    If they have been there long enough to establish residency then you have to evict them in accordance with your state law. Being a relative changes nothing.

    They can hire a lawyer and then follow his recommendation

    Unfortunately you will have to go through eviction proceedings like anyone else. Make it clear to this relative you will do this, and maybe they will get smart & move so you don't have to evict him.

    Get an eviction process against them.
