In South Shields, there's a shortage of authorised sites for travellers because of the housing crisis in the UK.
The limited authorised camping sites in South Shields have contributed to a high rise of travellers camping on unauthorised spaces in Whitburn, Cleadon, or Jarrow including playgrounds and parking lots.
Governmental statistics suggest that there was a 17% rise in camping on unauthorized grounds in South Shields from 2016 to 2017.
For plots of land in Tyne and Wear that are socially rented, there was only a 2% increase seen between 2010 and 2017.
Usually, there are two options for the Tyne and Wear landowners or local authorities to recover the possession of land or evict nomads in Whitburn, Jarrow, or Cleadon.
The first option is to use the common law to evict them in Tyne and Wear.
Standard law says that South Shields property owners have the authority to evict tourists from their land in Tyne and Wear and may be require to use a certain degree of force if need be.
Such Evictions in South Shields are conducted by enforcement agents.
The Denbigh Franks enforcement officers will serve a notice that gives the travellers 1 day to leave the South Shields site.
If the traveller remains on the property in Cleadon, Jarrow, or Whitburn at the expiration of the 24 hours, the Denbigh Franks agents are permitted by the law to remove them, using the police force if necessary.
Common law eviction has several advantages in Tyne and Wear.
The speed of the eviction process in South Shields is the biggest one.
In many situations, a common law eviction will take place within 24 hours, which ensures that there is less opportunity to cause damage to the land or property in South Shields and reduces the possibility of flipping the fly.
The second option land owners and authorities in Tyne and Wear can use to evict the travellers is to obtain a writ of possession.
Getting a possession order is the first step when an eviction in South Shields is to be done with a writ of possession.
This order is often kept secret from the travellers in Jarrow, Cleadon, or Whitburn and made out to an unknown.
Next, in South Shields the order would be transferred to the High Court from where it would be enforced by a High Court Enforcement Office (HCEO) from Denbigh Franks.
To transfer the order to High Court in Tyne and Wear has a major benefit that you don't have to serve the notice however, HCEO from Denbigh Franks will decide by analysing the current scenario.
This is especially important when handling travellers in South Shields 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 Tyne and Wear.
You don't want to spend more money and time in the process of evicting travellers from your property in Cleadon, Jarrow, or Whitburn, so for land owners and local authorities in Tyne and Wear, there are options available to find long term measures.
In order to stop the unauthorized persons from entering your land in South Shields, fences and gates on the premises and bollards at entrances are very good options.
You may also want to position large bollards, installing trenches, embankments, and earth bunds to secure your South Shields land from unwanted and illegal visitors.
