Within the UK's housing crisis, there's also a lack of approved places in Crawley for travellers to settle in.
This shortage in Crawley has led to a dramatic increase in the numbers of travellers setting up unauthorised campsites in Horsham, Haywards Heath, or Burgess Hill such as playing fields and car parks.
Governmental statistics suggest that there was a 17% rise in camping on unauthorized grounds in Crawley from 2016 to 2017.
Also, for socially leased land in West Sussex, there has been a meek 2% rise from 2010 - 2017.
Usually, there are two options for the West Sussex landowners or local authorities to recover the possession of land or evict nomads in Haywards Heath, Horsham, or Burgess Hill.
One way is to use the common law in West Sussex.
Standard law says that Crawley property owners have the authority to evict tourists from their land in West Sussex and may be require to use a certain degree of force if need be.
Evictions under the common law in Crawley are normally done by enforcement officers.
These Denbigh Franks agents will give the trespassing traveller 24 hours to vacate the property in Crawley through a notice.
If the traveller remains on the property in Burgess Hill, Horsham, or Haywards Heath 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.
There are numerous advantages of applying the common law in eviction in West Sussex.
The main benefit is the speed at which a traveller is removed from Crawley.
In most cases, an eviction using common law can be done in 24 hours, which means they have little or no time to cause damages to the property or land in Crawley and the risk of fly-tipping is reduced.
The other option for West Sussex local authorities and landowners is to obtain a writ of possession.
Under the writ of possession, the first step in Crawley is to obtain an order of possession.
When dealing with squatters and travellers in Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, or Horsham, the order of possession is served against "unknown person".
When the order of ownership has been granted in Crawley, you can go on and forward it to the High Court, which is then imposed by the (HCEO) High Court Enforcement Officer of Denbigh Franks.
One of the reasons why the use of writ of possession is beneficial to West Sussex 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 method is beneficial to landowners because the Crawley travellers or squatters are caught off guard and it minimizes the chances for resisting to vacate, stealing or destroying the property in West Sussex.
Avoiding these situations is always desirable to handle an eviction in Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, or Horsham and the time and cost involved, so, in order to prevent it, there are many actions that can be taken by local authorities and landowners in West Sussex.
Erecting fences and gates around the land and putting huge bollards at entrances are good ways of stopping unauthorized persons from accessing the property in Crawley.
Other preventive measures include securing your property in Crawley with embankment as well as trenches and earth bunds.
