Because of the UK housing crisis, there has been a dramatic increase in the numbers of unauthorized encampments - a move that is bolstered by the shortage of authorized sites in Nottinghamshire for campers.
This shortage in Nottinghamshire has led to a dramatic increase in the numbers of travellers setting up unauthorised campsites in Mansfield, Beeston and Stapleford, or West Bridgeford such as playing fields and car parks.
According to some government statistics, between 2016 and 2017, there was 17% increase in the number of caravans set up by travellers in Nottinghamshire on unauthorized plots of lands across the country.
On the other hand there was only a 2% rise in socially rented plots in Nottinghamshire between 2010 to 2017.
Nottinghamshire landowners and local authorities have two ways to reclaim land ownership and expel visitors in Mansfield, Beeston and Stapleford, or West Bridgeford.
The first option is to use common law in Nottinghamshire to evict them.
This law allows landowners in Nottinghamshire the authority to make travellers leave their property in Nottinghamshire, and may even employ the use of force to do so.
They usually take help from the enforcement agents to carry out eviction in Nottinghamshire under common law.
Also, such evictions are carried out by enforcement agents from Denbigh Franks who would issue a 24-hour ultimatum to those travellers directing them to vacate the Nottinghamshire site.
If after the 24-hour notice the site in West Bridgeford, Beeston and Stapleford, or Mansfield is not vacated then the Denbigh Franks enforcement officers will come back with equipment, together with police if need be, to remove any travellers who are there.
There are many advantages for using a common law eviction in Nottinghamshire.
Included in this is the speed the eviction in Nottinghamshire may be conducted.
Mostly, the general eviction law is carried out within 24 hours and this implies that there will be very few damages to land or property in Nottinghamshire and reduced chances for trash damping.
The second available option for the Nottinghamshire landowners and the local authorities is to get possession writ.
The first thing when evicting a traveller in Nottinghamshire using a writ of possession is to acquire an order of possession.
When you're dealing with squatters and travellers in Mansfield, Beeston and Stapleford, or West Bridgeford, you should make the order of ownership against "persons unknown".
When the order of possession has been awarded in Nottinghamshire, then the applicant may transfer it to the High Court and then be executed by a Denbigh Franks High Court Enforcement Officer (HCEO).
The greatest advantage of using a writ of property and moving it to the Nottinghamshire High Court is that notification does not have to be issued, depending on the situation; the Denbigh Franks HCEO may determine whether to do so.
When having to deal with Nottinghamshire travellers, this can be crucial as the surprise will remove opportunity to steal from the premise, vandalise property or this can combat expected resistance in Nottinghamshire.
It is advisable to prevent this type of situations whereby you have to carry out evictions in Beeston and Stapleford, West Bridgeford, or Mansfield that may consume your time and money, and there are various ways that local governments and property owners in Nottinghamshire can do to bar travellers from camping on their property.
It is important to take some actions, such as putting fences and gates over the Nottinghamshire property and also, having big bollards at entrances is also a great alternative to prevent unapproved individuals from getting inside your property.
In addition, trenches, earth bunds and embankments can also help in preventing unwanted visitors from entering your land in Nottinghamshire.
