Within the UK's housing crisis, there's also a lack of approved places in Kensington for travellers to settle in.
The limited number of accredited sites in Kensington has resulted in an exponential rise in the population of travellers camping on illegal grounds such as playing fields and car parks in Acton, Bayswater, or Acton Green.
According to the Government's statistics, the number of caravans in Kensington on unauthorized plots has increased by 17% from 2016-17.
From 2010 to 2017, there was only a 2% increment in socially leased areas in Greater London.
There exist two options for property owners and local authority in Greater London in case they want to eject tourists and regain their land ownership in Acton Green, Acton, or Bayswater.
Firstly, you can start eviction in Greater London by use of common law.
Under this Law, Kensington landowners have the right to evict the travellers out of their Greater London place and are also allowed to use adequate force, if needed.
Evictions of travellers under common law in Kensington are often carried out by enforcement agents.
The tourists are normally served with an order to move out of premise in Kensington within a span of 24 hours by Denbigh Franks enforcement agents.
If a traveller fails to leave the site in Acton Green, Acton, or Bayswater after 24 hours, the Denbigh Franks enforcement agents will come back with their equipment and probably with police if need be to forcefully evict any traveller still present.
In Greater London, common law has many different advantages.
The benefits of eviction of travellers in Kensington using common law include the speed of the operation.
In most cases, it takes less than 24 hours to carry out the eviction in Kensington, so, the traveller has less time to damage your property or the land as well as reduce the chances of illegal dumping of wastes on the property.
Secondly, the local governments and landowners in Greater London can opt to get a writ of possession.
Foremost, while removing a tourist using ownership writ in Kensington, you may be required to get a possession notice.
When using the order of possession to deal with squatters and travellers in Acton Green, Acton, or Bayswater, the order is usually kept a secret.
When the order of ownership has been granted in Kensington, 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.
For this reason, employing a writ of possession to evict travellers in Greater London 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.
This is helpful especially when dealing with the travellers in Kensington as the element of surprise prevents the risk of damaging and stealing from the property or forming a resistance to eviction in Greater London.
It is advisable that you avoid scenarios like these for happening as a great amount of time as well as cash is squandered while ejecting a traveller in Acton Green, Acton, or Bayswater, and there are various things that landowners and the local authority in Greater London may do to prevent such situations from occurring.
Kensington 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.
You may also want to position large bollards, installing trenches, embankments, and earth bunds to secure your Kensington land from unwanted and illegal visitors.
