That is enough to file a case for eviction. However that also depends on the year of the power of attorney. It is also a settled law that while deciding a case for eviction of property court cannot go into the question of ownership of the property.

Firstly, who does the property belong to, if it is a family member, you could also execute a transfer deed. However, you can file on behalf of the owner, under a special power of attorney, you would have to attach a true copy of the POA.
