With the continuing housing crisis in the UK there is also a shortage of authorized sites in Bracknell for travellers to set up on.
Therefore, a number of travellers in Bracknell are using the unauthorized encampments in Bracknell, Warfield, or Crowthorne like playing fields and car parks.
According to government records, in 2016 to 2017 the number of caravans setting up on authorized plots in Bracknell has been increased up to 17%.
While between 2010 and 2017 there was an increase of 2 percent in plots that are socially rented in Berkshire.
When it comes to regaining possession of land and evicting travellers in Bracknell, Warfield, or Crowthorne, the Berkshire land owners and local authorities can use two options.
The first option is to evict travellers using common law in Berkshire.
The common law grants land owners in Bracknell the right to remove travellers from their Berkshire property and the right to do this with reasonable force when necessary.
Usually, the process of common law evictions in Bracknell is carried out by the enforcement agents.
Enforcement Agents from Denbigh Franks usually give a notice that allows the travellers 24 hours to leave the Bracknell property.
If the traveller remains on the property in Warfield, Bracknell, or Crowthorne at the expiration of the 24 hours, the Denbigh Franks agents are permitted by the law to remove them, using the police force if necessary.
Common law eviction has several advantages in Berkshire.
For a start, the Bracknell eviction will be done swiftly without delay.
Usually, the eviction takes place within 24 hours, and thus, any damage to the property in Bracknell is less than what it would have been in a longer period of time.
The second option for local authorities and landowners in Berkshire is to get a writ of possession.
Getting a possession order is the first step when an eviction in Bracknell is to be done with a writ of possession.
This can be served to an "unknown" when the possession order is for travellers or squatters in Warfield, Crowthorne, or Bracknell.
The moment the property holder has been served with the notice of ownership in Bracknell, it is normally moved to High Court to be executed by a Denbigh Franks High Court officer.
One of the reasons why the use of writ of possession is beneficial to Berkshire land owners is because no notice would be issued to the travellers encroaching on the claimant's land, also, it is up to the Denbigh Franks HCEO to give a notice or take the travellers by surprise.
This is especially beneficial when dealing with travellers in Bracknell as the surprise element deducts any opportunity for property damage, steal from the property, or when resistance is expected to eviction in Berkshire.
A considerable amount of money and time are invested when trying to remove a traveller from a property in Bracknell, Warfield, or Crowthorne, and this is why it is always better to prevent it from happening at all, so to do so, there are certain things that Berkshire land owners and local authorities could do.
The best way to stop the unauthorized persons from entering land in Bracknell is to put fences and gates around the land and you can also prevent unauthorized access by installing large bollards at entrances.
On top of that, embankments, earth bunds and trenches are also great methods of protecting a site in Bracknell from unauthorised individuals.
