With the continuing housing crisis in the UK there is also a shortage of authorized sites in Leeds for travellers to set up on.
The scarcity of legitimate sites in Leeds has caused a dramatic growth in the number of travellers settling on illegal camps such as playing field and car parks in Leeds, Pudsey, or Newsam Green.
According to statistics from the government, from 2016 to 2017 there was a 17 percent increase in the number of travellers on unauthorized areas in Leeds that are not owned by travellers.
Also, for socially leased land in West Yorkshire, there has been a meek 2% rise from 2010 - 2017.
In order to evict the travellers and get the possession of land back in Pudsey, Newsam Green, or Leeds, landowners and local authorities in West Yorkshire have 2 options.
The first is Eviction in West Yorkshire using Common Law.
Under the common law, Leeds landowners are allowed to use the authority if required and evict travellers from their land in West Yorkshire rightfully and lawfully.
Traveller evictions under the common rule in Leeds are normally done by the law enforcement representatives.
The enforcement agents from Denbigh Franks will serve 24hrs notice to the travellers to vacate the site in Leeds.
If after 24-hour, the travellers did not leave the site in Leeds, Pudsey, or Newsam Green, then the Denbigh Franks enforcement agents will return with police to remove any travellers who remain.
Common law eviction has several advantages in West Yorkshire.
For a start, the Leeds eviction will be done swiftly without delay.
In addition, the speed at which the eviction in Leeds is carried out helps to reduce the travellers' tendencies of causing damage to the property.
The second option is to Obtain a Write of Possession for local authorities and land owners in West Yorkshire.
Under a writ of possession, the first step is to get an order of ownership in Leeds.
The warrant of ownership is rendered against'' persons unknown'' in interacting with travellers and squatters in Leeds, Pudsey, or Newsam Green.
The moment the property holder has been served with the notice of ownership in Leeds, it is normally moved to High Court to be executed by a Denbigh Franks High Court officer.
When moving a writ of possessions to the High Court in West Yorkshire, it is advantageous that the HCEO from Denbigh Franks can plan on if notice will have to be served or not.
It is more beneficial at the time of dealing with the travellers in Leeds who refuse to move on from the land as it takes away the opportunity of damaging the property from them, they cannot steal or show any kind of resistance at the time of eviction in West Yorkshire.
It takes a lot of time and money to deal with the travellers who have illegally come to your property in Leeds, Newsam Green, or Pudsey, so, the best thing you can do is to prevent these kinds of situations from happening in the first place, and the West Yorkshire land owners and local authorities can do a number of things to prevent these issues from arising.
A great way of preventing unauthorised persons from entering your land in Leeds is to put gates and fences around the property and having big bollards at entrances.
In addition, you can dig trenches, build embankments or plant earth buds which can also play an important role in safeguarding your Leeds land from unauthorised travellers.
