    I let two people move in with me, they are not on the lease. This morning they called the law...Said I was harassing them. Can they get a protection order against me and make me have to leave my own home?

    Maybe, anything is possible, isn't it?

    Your dilemma is just another example of why no adult should ever take in boarders, or solicit roommates in an attempt to collect rnt.
    Guess what, they probably won't pay you rent, either.

    I suggest you file an eviction action against them.

    Agreed. You have the upper hand here. Set things in motion to get them out before this gets worse.
