In addition to the ongoing housing crisis in the UK, the number of accredited sites in Taunton for travellers to settle on are also limited.
Because of this factor, an increase in the number of travellers in Taunton is observed setting up on unauthorized campsites in Bridgwater, Burnham-on-Sea, or Hastings which include car parks as well as playing grounds.
Governmental statistics suggest that there was a 17% rise in camping on unauthorized grounds in Taunton from 2016 to 2017.
That is to degrade government's efforts at ensuring socially rented plots in Somerset, which now grows at a meagre 2% between 2010 and 2017.
Usually, there are two options for the Somerset landowners or local authorities to recover the possession of land or evict nomads in Bridgwater, Hastings, or Burnham-on-Sea.
The first option is to use the common law to evict them in Somerset.
The common law grants land owners in Taunton the right to remove travellers from their Somerset property and the right to do this with reasonable force when necessary.
Evictions under common law in Taunton are carried out by enforcement agents.
These Denbigh Franks agents will give the trespassing traveller 24 hours to vacate the property in Taunton through a notice.
The Denbigh Franks enforcement agents come with the proper equipment to evict the travellers if they do not leave the place in Hastings, Burnham-on-Sea, or Bridgwater within 24-hour period.
To use common law eviction in Somerset has many benefits.
Included in this is the speed the eviction in Taunton may be conducted.
In most cases, it takes less than 24 hours to carry out the eviction in Taunton, so, the traveller has less time to damage your property or the land as well as reduce the chances of illegal dumping of wastes on the property.
The second option for local authorities and landowners in Somerset is to get a writ of possession.
Getting a possession order is the first step when an eviction in Taunton is to be done with a writ of possession.
When you're dealing with squatters and travellers in Hastings, Bridgwater, or Burnham-on-Sea, you should make the order of ownership against "persons unknown".
Next, in Taunton 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.
When moving a writ of possessions to the High Court in Somerset, it is advantageous that the HCEO from Denbigh Franks can plan on if notice will have to be served or not.
When having to deal with Taunton 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 Somerset.
It is recommended to prevent such kinds of scenarios from occurring since a lot of time and money is wasted when evicting a traveller from your land in Bridgwater, Hastings, or Burnham-on-Sea, and there are several things that the local authorities and landowners in Somerset can do to avoid such circumstances from happening.
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 Taunton.
Another great way of securing an area of land in Taunton from unauthorized persons is to use embankments, trenches, and earth bunds.
