What is the law regarding the eviction of people who are living in a house that we just bought?

Question Details: We bought a house though a title company and discovered the house is occupied by someone else. They never had any kind of agreement with the deedholder or the new owners, us. They have been there 2 years and we just bought the place in the last few weeks. We don't know if they even realize there is a problem. What should we do?
