Due to the housing critical situation in the UK, there has been an increase in the number of unauthorised traveller encampments in Scunthorpe.
The limited authorised camping sites in Scunthorpe have contributed to a high rise of travellers camping on unauthorised spaces in Erith, Bexley, or Belvedere including playgrounds and parking lots.
Looking at the government figures, between 2016 and 2017, a 17% increment in the total number of Scunthorpe travellers on unlicensed sections not managed by travellers was realised.
On the other hand there was only a 2% rise in socially rented plots in Lincolnshire between 2010 to 2017.
As a landowner in Lincolnshire, you can choose from two options to repossess your land and evict travellers in Bexley, Belvedere, or Erith.
The first option is to evict them in Lincolnshire using the law.
Common law states that landowners in Scunthorpe have the jurisdiction to remove travellers from their piece of land in Lincolnshire and they can use some reasonable force if necessary.
This eviction of travellers in Scunthorpe is often done by enforcements agents.
The Denbigh Franks enforcement agents notify the traveller to leave the site in Scunthorpe within a deadline of 24 hours.
After the 24-hour deadline expires and the traveller has not vacated the site in Erith, Bexley, or Belvedere, then the Denbigh Franks enforcement agent will be back with equipment and if they feel the need police can also be called to remove the Travellers who are still at the sight.
There are numerous benefits to using common law eviction in Lincolnshire.
One of which is the speedy removal of the Scunthorpe traveller from the premises.
In most instances, the travellers are evicted within 24 hours, which as a result reduces chances of damage to the property in Scunthorpe and tackles fly-tipping.
For landlords and local authorities in Lincolnshire, the other choice is to seek an ownership note.
The first step when evicting under writ of possession in Scunthorpe is obtaining an order of possession.
This can be served to an "unknown" when the possession order is for travellers or squatters in Bexley, Erith, or Belvedere.
The moment the property holder has been served with the notice of ownership in Scunthorpe, it is normally moved to High Court to be executed by a Denbigh Franks High Court officer.
The greatest advantage of using a writ of property and moving it to the Lincolnshire 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.
This is especially beneficial when dealing with travellers in Scunthorpe as the surprise element deducts any opportunity for property damage, steal from the property, or when resistance is expected to eviction in Lincolnshire.
It is advisable that you avoid scenarios like these for happening as a great amount of time as well as cash is squandered while ejecting a traveller in Erith, Belvedere, or Bexley, and there are various things that landowners and the local authority in Lincolnshire may do to prevent such situations from occurring.
It is important to take some actions, such as putting fences and gates over the Scunthorpe property and also, having big bollards at entrances is also a great alternative to prevent unapproved individuals from getting inside your property.
Also, earth bunds, trenches and embankments may also assist in safeguarding land in Scunthorpe against intruders.
