Not only do we have a housing crisis in the UK, but also limited authorised locations in Carlisle where travellers can put up campsites.
This shortage of authorized sites in Carlisle has resulted into an increase in the amount of travellers setting up on unauthorized encampments in Castlerigg, Carlisle, or Sunderland in the likes of car parks as well as playing fields.
Moreover, government data illustrates that there has been a 17% increase in the number of caravans on unapproved places in Carlisle.
While socially rented plots in Cumbria only witnessed a 2% increase between the year 2010 and 2017.
As a landowner in Cumbria, you can choose from two options to repossess your land and evict travellers in Castlerigg, Sunderland, or Carlisle.
Foremost, you will need to apply the general law in order to evict Cumbria travellers.
Under the common law, Carlisle landowners are allowed to use the authority if required and evict travellers from their land in Cumbria rightfully and lawfully.
Enforcement agents undertake evictions in Carlisle under common law.
The notice of 24hrs is given to the travellers to vacate the place in Carlisle and the notice is served by the Denbigh Franks enforcement agents.
The Denbigh Franks enforcement agents come with the proper equipment to evict the travellers if they do not leave the place in Sunderland, Castlerigg, or Carlisle within 24-hour period.
Common law eviction has several advantages in Cumbria.
For a start, the Carlisle eviction will be done swiftly without delay.
With a common law eviction, travellers can be removed from the property in Carlisle in a period of 24 hours which results in less destruction of property and fly-tipping.
The other choice for local authorities and landowners in Cumbria is to get a writ of possession.
Under a writ of possession, the first step is to get an order of ownership in Carlisle.
When making use of the possession order to handle travellers and squatters in Carlisle, Sunderland, or Castlerigg, the notice is normally kept clandestine.
Once the order for possession has been conferred in Carlisle, the claimant can then transfer it to the High Court and then enforced by the HCEO (High Court Enforcement Officer) from Denbigh Franks.
For this reason, employing a writ of possession to evict travellers in Cumbria is preferred over other methods, and when doing so, the Denbigh Franks enforcement officer decides whether or not to issue a notice according to the situation at hand.
Thus, you won't have to worry about travellers in Carlisle damaging your property or stealing from your property as you don't have any idea of how they would respond to the eviction in Cumbria.
Preventing such situations from occurring in the first place is always preferable to dealing with an eviction in Sunderland, Carlisle, or Castlerigg, and the potential time and money involved, so there are several things that Cumbria landowners and local authorities can do to prevent these situations from occurring.
Carlisle landlords may decide to build fences as well as gates on their property and put up a big bollard around the gates and by so doing, you will prevent unauthorised persons from gaining entrance to the property.
In addition to these, trenches and earth bunds are effective ways of deterring illegal persons from gaining access to your Carlisle land.
