Candy Spelling -- one of the richest people in Beverly Hills -- is a SQUATTER ... who refuses to leave her fancy L.A. condo ... and now her landlord is trying to evict her, this according to a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ.
Spelling is in a war with the owner of the pad she's been renting while her $47 million L.A. penthouse is under construction ... and now the owner wants a judge to force Candy out of the $28k-per-month unit.
According to the court docs, filed on February 22 in L.A. County Superior Court, the company that owns the unit -- located at the famous Carlyle building -- claims Candy's lease ended on January 31st ... and she's refused to vacate.
Of course, Candy is calling BS -- in legal papers she filed on Feb. 19, Spelling says she extended the lease for 6 months ... and even paid for the month of February.
Besides the eviction, the owner of the unit is demanding $933.33 for every day Candy overstays her welcome.
