The travellers in Reading often face problems with finding the authorized sites in the UK because of UK's housing crisis.
As a result, an increasing number of travellers in Reading are setting up unauthorized encampments such as playing fields and car parks in Thatcham, Reading, or Woodley.
According to governments statistics, it has been reported that the caravan parked on unauthorised spaces in Reading increased up to 17% between 2016 to 2017.
And socially rented plots in Berkshire had only increased by 2% between the years 2010 and 2017.
Landlords and local government in Berkshire have two alternatives when seeking to obtain the possession of land and evict travellers in Thatcham, Woodley, or Reading.
Using common law to evict travellers in Berkshire is the first option.
The common law allows landowners in Reading to evict travellers from their Berkshire property and can use reasonable force if necessary.
They usually take help from the enforcement agents to carry out eviction in Reading under common law.
The notice of 24hrs is given to the travellers to vacate the place in Reading and the notice is served by the Denbigh Franks enforcement agents.
If the 24-hour grace expires and the travellers remain on the property in Reading, Thatcham, or Woodley, 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.
Eviction by common law in Berkshire comes with certain benefits.
The largest benefit is the speed at which the eviction in Reading can be done.
The common law minimizes the risk of potential damage on the Reading property since it is enforced within 24 hours, and this short time frame also limits the chances of fly tipping.
The second option land owners and authorities in Berkshire can use to evict the travellers is to obtain a writ of possession.
Getting an order of possession is the first step to evicting in Reading under a writ of possession.
When using the order of possession to deal with squatters and travellers in Woodley, Reading, or Thatcham, the order is usually kept a secret.
Once the landowner gets the order of possession in Reading he can then be able to get the enforcement by High Court Enforcement Officer (HCEO) from Denbigh Franks by transferring the order to High Court.
The key advantage of using a writ of possession in Berkshire 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 is especially important when handling travellers in Reading because the lack of notice removes any risk of resistance to removal from the property, as well as damage or theft on the property in Berkshire.
It is usually better to take preventive measures to avoid the occurrence of these incidents when handling an eviction in Reading, Thatcham, or Woodley and the possible money and time that may be wasted so there are a few things that can be done by local authorities and land owners in Berkshire to avoid the occurrence of these situations.
Having fencing and gates around the field and having large bollards at thresholds is a perfect way to stop unwanted people from entering the property in Reading.
On top of that, embankments, earth bunds and trenches are also great methods of protecting a site in Reading from unauthorised individuals.
