There is also a lack of approved places in Waltham Forest for travellers to set up during the housing crisis in the UK.
Therefore, a number of travellers in Waltham Forest are using the unauthorized encampments in Stratford, Buckhurst Hill, or Walthamstow like playing fields and car parks.
Statistics from the Government show that the caravan numbers on unauthorized parcels and land in Waltham Forest that doesn't belong to travellers has increased by 17 percent from 2016-2017.
And socially rented plots in Greater London had only increased by 2% between the years 2010 and 2017.
Greater London landowners and local authorities have two ways to reclaim land ownership and expel visitors in Stratford, Walthamstow, or Buckhurst Hill.
You can take advantage of the common law to evict them in Greater London.
Under the common law, Waltham Forest landowners are allowed to use the authority if required and evict travellers from their land in Greater London rightfully and lawfully.
Evictions under common law in Waltham Forest are carried out by enforcement agents.
A notice is issued by Denbigh Franks enforcement agents to the travellers to vacate the unauthorized area in Waltham Forest within a day.
If after the 24-hour notice the site in Buckhurst Hill, Walthamstow, or Stratford 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.
The use of common law has many benefits in Greater London.
Use of common law has various benefits including time taken to achieve eviction in Waltham Forest.
In addition, the speed at which the eviction in Waltham Forest is carried out helps to reduce the travellers' tendencies of causing damage to the property.
The other alternative landlords and local government in Greater London have is to get a writ of possession.
When evicting according to the writ of possession in Waltham Forest, you should try to get an order of possession.
The possession order is usually made against "Persons Unknown" when referring to either squatters or travellers in Walthamstow, Buckhurst Hill, or Stratford.
Once the order for possession has been conferred in Waltham Forest, the claimant can then transfer it to the High Court and then enforced by the HCEO (High Court Enforcement Officer) from Denbigh Franks.
The main benefit of making use of a writ of possession in Greater London and forwarding it to the High Court is that there is no need for a notice to be given, the Denbigh Franks HCEO undertakes that decision and he will determine if it is needed based on the situation.
This technique is advantageous to property owners considering that the squatters or travellers in Waltham Forest are found off balance and it reduces their chances of resisting evacuation, damaging property or thieving in Greater London.
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 Walthamstow, Stratford, or Buckhurst Hill, and there are several things that the local authorities and landowners in Greater London can do to avoid such circumstances from happening.
A great way of preventing unauthorised persons from entering your land in Waltham Forest is to put gates and fences around the property and having big bollards at entrances.
