Not only do we have a housing crisis in the UK, but also limited authorised locations in Hounslow where travellers can put up campsites.
The crisis of shortage of authorised site in Hounslow has only lead to the rise of travellers setting up on unauthorised places in Hythe End, Egham, or Wraysbury including car parks and playing fields.
Government statistics reveal that there has been a 17% increment in the number of caravans in Hounslow on unlawful land and plots not possessed by travellers from the year 2016 - 2017.
While between 2010 and 2017 there was an increase of 2 percent in plots that are socially rented in Greater London.
If the local authorities or land owners in Greater London want to regain possession of their properties in Wraysbury, Egham, or Hythe End, they need to evict travellers, which, they have two options.
The first alternative is to evict travellers in Greater London by making use of common law.
Under the common law, land owners in Hounslow are within their rights to evict travellers from their Greater London land and permission to apply reasonable force if need be.
They usually take help from the enforcement agents to carry out eviction in Hounslow under common law.
A notice is issued by Denbigh Franks enforcement agents to the travellers to vacate the unauthorized area in Hounslow within a day.
If the traveller does not comply to this notice and leave the location in Egham, Wraysbury, or Hythe End, the agents from Denbigh Franks will forcefully remove the traveller, with or without the help of the police.
Using the common law in Greater London offers tons of benefits.
One of which is the speedy removal of the Hounslow traveller from the premises.
Normally, the eviction under the common law can be carried out within 24hrs, so there is no time for travellers to cause the damage to the land or property in Hounslow and lessen the chance for fly-tipping.
The other alternative landlords and local government in Greater London have is to get a writ of possession.
Foremost, while removing a tourist using ownership writ in Hounslow, you may be required to get a possession notice.
When you're dealing with squatters and travellers in Egham, Hythe End, or Wraysbury, you should make the order of ownership against "persons unknown".
Once the landowner in Hounslow has received the order of possession, it is then transferred to the High Court where a Denbigh Franks enforcement officer from the High Court will implement it.
The main benefit of making use of a writ of possession in Greater London and forwarding it to the High Court is that there is no need for a notice to be given, the Denbigh Franks HCEO undertakes that decision and he will determine if it is needed based on the situation.
This technique is advantageous to property owners considering that the squatters or travellers in Hounslow are found off balance and it reduces their chances of resisting evacuation, damaging property or thieving in Greater London.
Preventing such situations from occurring in the first place is always preferable to dealing with an eviction in Egham, Hythe End, or Wraysbury, and the potential time and money involved, so there are several things that Greater London landowners and local authorities can do to prevent these situations from occurring.
One thing that can be done is to put fences or more one can have large billboards installed at the entrances, and both are great ways of stopping any unauthorised person from entering the premises in Hounslow.
Also, earth bunds, trenches and embankments may also assist in safeguarding land in Hounslow against intruders.
