Aside from crisis of housing around the UK, travellers have only a few certified sites in Middlesbrough to depend on.
As a result, an increasing number of travellers in Middlesbrough are setting up unauthorized encampments such as playing fields and car parks in Yarm, Middlesbrough, or Redcar.
Statistics from the Government show that the caravan numbers on unauthorized parcels and land in Middlesbrough that doesn't belong to travellers has increased by 17 percent from 2016-2017.
Between 2010 and 2017 there was just a two percent rise in socially rented places in North Yorkshire.
Landlords and local government in North Yorkshire have two alternatives when seeking to obtain the possession of land and evict travellers in Yarm, Redcar, or Middlesbrough.
The first is Eviction in North Yorkshire using Common Law.
Under this Law, Middlesbrough landowners have the right to evict the travellers out of their North Yorkshire place and are also allowed to use adequate force, if needed.
This kind of action is generally carried out in Middlesbrough by the enforcement agent.
A notice is issued by Denbigh Franks enforcement agents to the travellers to vacate the unauthorized area in Middlesbrough within a day.
Assuming the travellers have not vacated the site in Redcar, Yarm, or Middlesbrough within the specified period, Denbigh Franks enforcement agents will come back with equipment and possibly the police if need be, to evict any traveller still camping on the land.
Eviction by common law in North Yorkshire comes with certain benefits.
Out of all the benefits of using common law, the biggest one is that the process in Middlesbrough gets speed up.
In most cases, common law eviction is undertaken within a 24-hour period and this means that less damage is done to the property or land in Middlesbrough and there are little chances for dumping trash.
Secondly, the local governments and landowners in North Yorkshire can opt to get a writ of possession.
Foremost, while removing a tourist using ownership writ in Middlesbrough, you may be required to get a possession notice.
The possession order is usually made against "Persons Unknown" when referring to either squatters or travellers in Redcar, Yarm, or Middlesbrough.
Once the possession order has been issued in Middlesbrough, the plaintiff can then transfer it to the High Court for enforcement by a High Court Enforcement Officer (HCEO) from Denbigh Franks.
The main advantage of using a possessions writ and transferring to High Court the order in North Yorkshire is that notice is not necessarily given, as the Denbigh Franks HCEO will decide it depending on the situation, that either to give the notice or not.
It is more beneficial at the time of dealing with the travellers in Middlesbrough 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 North Yorkshire.
It is advisable to prevent this type of situations whereby you have to carry out evictions in Redcar, Yarm, or Middlesbrough that may consume your time and money, and there are various ways that local governments and property owners in North Yorkshire can do to bar travellers from camping on their property.
Middlesbrough 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.
Also, earth bunds, trenches and embankments may also assist in safeguarding land in Middlesbrough against intruders.
