Squatters in Doncaster are prone to eviction and can be arrested easily.
Squatting is when a person illegally enters a premise in Doncaster to live without the permission of the tenant or owner of said property.
Many take squatting as the last option when there is no other suitable alternative in Doncaster, Goole, or Adwick Le Street.
It doesn't offer a lasting solution for a destitute as you are likely to be evicted from the Doncaster premises and sent to the bars by the police.
You are not a squatter because you live in a house in South Yorkshire when your lease or license has expired.
Don't forget living in someone's property in Doncaster without permission is a crime.
You can get arrested and in case you get convicted, you might:
Spend up to 6 months in prison in Doncaster
Be penalised up to £5,000
Reasons why you should not be arrested in South Yorkshire:
You were residing in the property of rent in Doncaster after the expiry of your tenancy or license
You truly went into a premise in South Yorkshire believing that you are a tenant only to find out that you were conned by a fake renting agent
You are a traveller or gypsy encamping on an unauthorised site in Doncaster
Squatters in Doncaster can be evicted if:
The South Yorkshire police feel there is no need for an arrest
The property owner in Adwick Le Street, Doncaster, or Goole doesn't want to involve the Police in the matter
You are staying in a commercial property in Doncaster
The Doncaster property owner may change the locks to the squatter's room(s) while the latter is away.
In case a squatter in a property in Doncaster refuse to move out, the owner may seek a court injunction in South Yorkshire.
Use of violence or threat against you is illegal.
The property owner must attach a copy of their possession claim to the front door of the house or post it through the letterbox at least five days before the court hearing in South Yorkshire.
His claim forms sent to the squatter must include a defence form and details of the time and place of the court hearing.
You can challenge the case to confirm you are not a squatter in Doncaster.
This can be done by taking the defence form to the court and attending the court hearing in Doncaster.
If you are a squatter, you will be ordered by the court in South Yorkshire to leave the land in Doncaster on the earliest basis.
If you don't vacate the property, bailiffs from the court in South Yorkshire may evict you on the owner's order.
Squatters in Doncaster, Adwick Le Street, or Goole don't have the right to live in the place where they are. Therefore, they are classed as homeless.
Apply to your local council in Doncaster and enjoy the homeless people's benefits.
The South Yorkshire council should provide you with advice on how to find somewhere to stay in Doncaster.
You may also receive emergency help from specialist services in some areas in South Yorkshire rather than sleeping outside.
In some situation, the council in Doncaster may need to give you emergency shelter if you are deemed as a priority case (pregnant, with children, or in danger).
Yet, the local authority may not be able to provide you with emergency or lasting housing solution in case you are under immigration or residential restrictions, example, in case you are looking for asylum in Goole, Doncaster, or Adwick Le Street.
