Within the UK's housing crisis, there's also a lack of approved places in Mansfield for travellers to settle in.
Due to this, the increased numbers of caravans packed on unauthorized land in Mansfield such as playing fields, and car parks has been observed in Hucknall, Sutton In Ashfield, or West Bridgford.
According to some government statistics, between 2016 and 2017, there was 17% increase in the number of caravans set up by travellers in Mansfield on unauthorized plots of lands across the country.
And socially rented plots in Nottinghamshire had only increased by 2% between the years 2010 and 2017.
Local authorities and landowners in Nottinghamshire have two options when they need to remove travellers and repossess their lands in Sutton In Ashfield, West Bridgford, or Hucknall.
The first alternative is to evict travellers in Nottinghamshire by making use of common law.
Under this Law, Mansfield landowners have the right to evict the travellers out of their Nottinghamshire place and are also allowed to use adequate force, if needed.
Traveller evictions under the common rule in Mansfield are normally done by the law enforcement representatives.
The travellers are served with an eviction notice by enforcement agents from Denbigh Franks, giving them a duration of 24 hours to move out of the site in Mansfield.
If the 24-hour grace expires and the travellers remain on the property in Sutton In Ashfield, Hucknall, or West Bridgford, Denbigh Franks enforcement agents will visit the property with the necessary equipment (including the police if required) to evict any traveller found on the land.
There are numerous benefits to using common law eviction in Nottinghamshire.
The main benefit is the speed at which a traveller is removed from Mansfield.
The best thing about common law is that it enables you to remove the travellers within 24 hours which protects your Mansfield property from all types of damages by allowing you to evict the travellers within 24 hours, and it also reduces the opportunity for fly tipping.
The second option for Nottinghamshire landowners and local authorities is to obtain a writ of possession.
Getting a possession order is the first step when an eviction in Mansfield is to be done with a writ of possession.
When using the order of possession to deal with squatters and travellers in West Bridgford, Sutton In Ashfield, or Hucknall, the order is usually kept a secret.
When the order of possession has been awarded in Mansfield, then the applicant may transfer it to the High Court and then be executed by a Denbigh Franks High Court Enforcement Officer (HCEO).
The major benefit of utilising an ownership writ and later transferring it to Nottinghamshire 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.
This benefit is more pronounced with dealing with Mansfield travellers since it doesn't give them enough time to spring surprises or vandalize your property and it also comes in handy if you expect some degree of resistance in Nottinghamshire.
It takes a lot of time and money to deal with the travellers who have illegally come to your property in Sutton In Ashfield, Hucknall, or West Bridgford, so, the best thing you can do is to prevent these kinds of situations from happening in the first place, and the Nottinghamshire land owners and local authorities can do a number of things to prevent these issues from arising.
Illegal visitors can be stopped from gaining access to the lands in Mansfield by installing gates and fences to barricade the land and installing prominent bollards at entry points.
On top of this, trenches, earth bunds, and embankments, are as well good methods of securing an area of land in Mansfield from unauthorized visitors.
