Aside from crisis of housing around the UK, travellers have only a few certified sites in Northamptonshire to depend on.
This shortage of authorized sites in Northamptonshire has resulted into an increase in the amount of travellers setting up on unauthorized encampments in Corby, Kettering, or Northampton in the likes of car parks as well as playing fields.
According to the figures given by the government, a 17% rise has been witnessed in Northamptonshire in the number of nomads on unauthorised land not owned by travellers from 2016-2017.
In contrast, from 2010 to 2017, there has been a mere 2% rise in the number of socially leased land in Northamptonshire.
In order to evict the travellers and get the possession of land back in Kettering, Corby, or Northampton, landowners and local authorities in Northamptonshire have 2 options.
First of all, you can vacate them using the common law in Northamptonshire.
Under common law, Northamptonshire landowners have the power to remove travellers from their property in Northamptonshire and are allowed to use force if required.
This kind of action is generally carried out in Northamptonshire by the enforcement agent.
The Denbigh Franks enforcement officers will serve a notice that gives the travellers 1 day to leave the Northamptonshire site.
In case after 24 hours, the travellers still haven't left the property in Corby, Kettering, or Northampton, then the agents from Denbigh Franks will use tools and police, if needed, to evict travellers.
Using common law in Northamptonshire has numerous advantages.
Out of all the benefits of using common law, the biggest one is that the process in Northamptonshire gets speed up.
A removal under common law can be executed within 24 hours in many cases; this means there is a shorter time for damage to the property or land in Northamptonshire and reduce the chances for fly-tipping.
Another choice is land owners and local authorities in Northamptonshire obtaining a writ of possession.
Foremost, while removing a tourist using ownership writ in Northamptonshire, you may be required to get a possession notice.
When dealing with squatters and travellers in Corby, Kettering, or Northampton, the order of possession is served against "unknown person".
When the order of ownership has been granted in Northamptonshire, 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.
The key advantage of using a writ of possession in Northamptonshire which is transferred to the High Court is that serving a notice is not required and the Denbigh Franks HCEO takes the decision, as determined by the situation.
This technique is advantageous to property owners considering that the squatters or travellers in Northamptonshire are found off balance and it reduces their chances of resisting evacuation, damaging property or thieving in Northamptonshire.
While dealing with an eviction in Kettering, Corby, or Northampton, preventing such situations from happening is preferred always as it is very time consuming and a lot of money is required to follow the procedures accurately, so, there are many options available for the landowners and the authorities in Northamptonshire to do in order to seek long term measures.
Erecting fences and gates around the land and putting huge bollards at entrances are good ways of stopping unauthorized persons from accessing the property in Northamptonshire.
In addition, you can dig trenches, build embankments or plant earth buds which can also play an important role in safeguarding your Northamptonshire land from unauthorised travellers.
