Housing issues in the UK are not hidden from us and along with other problems, authorised sites for the travellers in Eastleigh is also the one.
The scarcity of legitimate sites in Eastleigh has caused a dramatic growth in the number of travellers settling on illegal camps such as playing field and car parks in Bishopstoke, Compton-Otterbourne, or Romsey.
According to the Government's statistics, the number of caravans in Eastleigh on unauthorized plots has increased by 17% from 2016-17.
And the number of socially rented plots in Hampshire has dramatically reduced from 2010 to 2017.
There are two alternatives for local authorities and landowners in Hampshire if they wish to evict travellers and get back possession of the land in Compton-Otterbourne, Bishopstoke, or Romsey.
Foremost, you will need to apply the general law in order to evict Hampshire travellers.
Common law states that landowners in Eastleigh have the jurisdiction to remove travellers from their piece of land in Hampshire and they can use some reasonable force if necessary.
Enforcement agents typically perform evictions in Eastleigh using common law.
The Denbigh Franks enforcement agents will send a notice to the travellers in which they have 24 hours to abandon the site in Eastleigh.
If after 24-hour, the travellers did not leave the site in Bishopstoke, Compton-Otterbourne, or Romsey, then the Denbigh Franks enforcement agents will return with police to remove any travellers who remain.
The use of common law has many benefits in Hampshire.
The biggest is the speed at which the eviction in Eastleigh takes place.
In addition, the speed at which the eviction in Eastleigh is carried out helps to reduce the travellers' tendencies of causing damage to the property.
Local authorities and landowners in Hampshire have a second alternative of getting a writ of possession.
When obtaining a writ of possession, you must initially get an order of possession for eviction in Eastleigh.
The order is made against "Persons Unknown" when dealing with squatters or travellers in Romsey, Bishopstoke, or Compton-Otterbourne.
Next, in Eastleigh the order would be transferred to the High Court from where it would be enforced by a High Court Enforcement Office (HCEO) from Denbigh Franks.
The major benefit of utilising an ownership writ and later transferring it to Hampshire High Court includes an order being considered unnecessary, but, Denbigh Franks High Court enforcement personnel may choose if to serve an order or not depending on the existing circumstances.
When having to deal with Eastleigh travellers, this can be crucial as the surprise will remove opportunity to steal from the premise, vandalise property or this can combat expected resistance in Hampshire.
Preventing such situations from occurring in the first place is always preferable to dealing with an eviction in Bishopstoke, Compton-Otterbourne, or Romsey, and the potential time and money involved, so there are several things that Hampshire landowners and local authorities can do to prevent these situations from occurring.
In order to stop the unauthorized persons from entering your land in Eastleigh, fences and gates on the premises and bollards at entrances are very good options.
On top of this, trenches, earth bunds, and embankments, are as well good methods of securing an area of land in Eastleigh from unauthorized visitors.
