What state is your rental in? This is called unauthorized occupants. Deal with the tenant. Focus on getting her out. Don't get drawn into arguing, it just wastes your time. The daughter has no right to be living in the unit. She has probably put a utility in her name, and used this to get her daughter enrolled in the local school system. Has the daughter's car parked there overnight for three days?
I would start with the three or five day day notice. In Ohio, a notice to leave premises serves as the three day notice. I know in Ohio you don't have to give a reason, but Ohio is definitely a landlord friendly state.
A tenant gives me trouble, I just follow up with the right before they moved in pictures, a copy of the lease they have signed,and tell them the pictures are able to tell a thousand words in front of the judge during the eviction process. Get prepared to evict. Be prepared for the mess. I would point out to the tenant that the LPA lease will prevail if she or her daughter damages the place on their way out, as it has been tested in your local court system....the LPA lease is a good one. (Small claims court is the route for damages less than 5,000-at least in my state.)
